As a start you could try something like this:

Fetcher[

Bollinger width(20) has reached a new 6 month low
close above 5
draw Bollinger Bands(20,2)
]

Along with the above filter, you could add a volume contingent. To look for the breakout, I add something to the effect of "Volume is 100% greater than volume 1 day ago." I also add, "Close is above upper bollinger band(20)" to make sure the volume bump wasn't just churning. Hope this helps.

Maybe this?


Fetcher[
NASDAQ100
add column Bollinger width(20,2)
draw bollinger bands (20,2)
set{bw,cma(Bollinger width(20,2),100)}
add column bw
set{volat,bollinger width/bw}
add column volat
sort column 7
]

sunny, try this for a pincher play:


close > 10
Percent Price Oscillator(10,50) < -0.3
ADX(14) > 37
volume(90) > 100000
set{rb20,close/ma(20)} set{ma20%,rb20*100} and add column ma20%
set{rb50,close/ma(50)} set{ma50%,rb50*100} and add column ma50%
set{rb200,close/ma(200)} set{ma200%,rb200*100} and add column ma200%

and draw bollinger band(12)

This will capture the increase in width that often happens in the beginning of a bigger move

Fetcher[
Bollinger width(20) has reached a new 6 month low within the last 10 days
close above 5
bollinger width(20) > bollinger width(20) one day ago
draw Bollinger Bands(20,2)
]
