Hi
Fetcher[
set {a, high 30 day high minus low 30 day low} add column a
set {range, a / close} add column range and sort column 6 ascending
close > 1 and average volume (30) > 900,000
set {b, high 90 day high minus low 90 day low}
set {range90, b / close} add column range90 and range90 > .06
]




This will give you companies with small range but have had some movement in the past.
You might play around with the range90 and see if you like different values.

Good Luck
David

Here's a dead simple way.A one liner.
Fetcher[
close 30 day high high divided by the close 30 day low is less than 1.05
]


You can play with the percentages or can rewrite to use dollars.In which case you would subtract instead of dividing.

There doesn't seem to be any way for me not to screw this up. And no way to delete errors.I apologize.My computer is dying and committing errors as well as I.

Once more into the breech rode the 400.
Fetcher[
close (30) day high divided by the close (30) day low is less than 1.03
]


You will need price ,volume or other conditions to limit results.

My last scan is dead on for stocks showing limited range of closing prices.
Is your question limited to the Dow S&p and nasdaq past movement?
What is your time frame limitation of the required limited range?
Does the high and/or low of the price movement establish the allowable range?
To paraphrase a famous man "Make your scans as simple as possible but not simpler.".

Sapient Corporation - SAPE

No filter used but stumbled upon today's price action. Narrow range for today after 10 am.

Maybe someone can use this ?
