POSITION is expressed in % as to where the stocks sit in respect to their 52 week hight & low. You can select different industries or sectors or just comment the selection criteria out and get a ranked list of all stocks.


/* Shows Current location of a stock in respect to it's 52 week high and low */

set{LOW52, low 52 week low}
set{HIGH52, high 52 week high}
set{SPREAD52, HIGH52 - LOW52}
set{CLOSE52, close - LOW52}

add column POSITION

and sort column 5 descending

/* Add your criteria here */

and Average Volume(5) is above 100000
and close is above 1.00
/* and sector Energy */
and industry semiconductors
/* and stock type is etf */

/* and POSITION is below 20
and POSITION is above POSITION 1 week ago
and close is at a 1 week high */

What does a Position of 98 mean compared to 90? Is 98 a better stock to buy, or what?

A 98 position would mean that the stock is 98% above it's 52 week low, and 2% below it's 52 week high.

It's not intended to be a buying or selling filter but just a way to evaluate stocks in relation to where they are in respect to their own 52 week high or low. Some may only want to buy a stock near it's 52 week low. Others want to go the other way and only buy strong stocks (near 52 week high).

Modification of Yearly Position Filter

Finds stocks in lower 40% of their 1 Year range.
Finds stocks in Upper 20% of their 10 day range. Can change this to 22 day for a monthly range.

Week column added keep an eye on the ones with lower 5 day numbers moving up.

Fetcher[/* Position of close in Year Range */
set{ HighY, high 260 day high}
set{ LowY, low 260 day low}
set{DiffY,HighY - LowY}
set{PDiffY,close - LowY}
set{PosY,PDiffY / DiffY}
set{Year,PosY * 100}

/* Position of close in Month Range */
set{ HighM, high 10 day high}
set{ LowM, low 10 day low}
set{DiffM,HighM - LowM}
set{PDiffM,close - LowM}
set{PosM,PDiffM / DiffM}
set{Month,PosM * 100}

/* Position of close in Year Range */
set{ High2, high 5 day high}
set{ Low2, low 5 day low}
set{Diff2,High2 - Low2}
set{PDiff2,close - Low2}
set{Pos2,PDiff2 / Diff2}
set{Week,Pos2 * 100}

Find stocks Year < 40
and Month > 80
and price gain > 4%
and volume is greater than 100000
and volume > volume 1 day ago

this seems to be what i am looking for in terms of trying to find stocks that are located within a specific yearly range, however all the numbers and parameters are quite confusing at first glance ... what part of that syntax would allow me to scan for stocks that are, say... located at a minimum of 75% of their yearly range?

Ron Your 52 Week Position Filter is awesome! Thanks for posting it. Am curious though. Is there a way to display only the top 6% of the stocks? Say the ones that are at position 95 to 100? Or even the bottom 6%

I got errors when I tried it,
didnt exactly understand how plot in my numbers, for example if I
ONLY want stocks which is between 5% and 8% from their 52 week high?

How would that be?
