Hello all,

I have what is likely another rookie question: I am running the following scan, but I was wondering if there is a way to change the coding a bit so that it looks for the same basic structure, EXCEPT that it took place x days ago (10, 20, whatever..)

RSI(3) crossed above 70 and RSI(3) 1 day ago had been below 70 for the last 20 days
and average volume(30) is greater than 300000
and close is above 1


So basically, I'm trying to find a scan that is capable of finding stocks where the RSI(3) crossed above 70 for the first time in 20 days... except that this actually happened x days ago (after the fact).

Thoughts? Any help is greatly appreciated, as always..

Jon

Hi

Try this
Fetcher[
rsi (3) < 20 for the last 20 days and draw rsi (3)
]



You get 41 matches

add Price of close > 5 and -----

Fetcher[
close > 5 and rsi (3) < 20 for the last 20 days and draw rsi (3)
]



You get 3 matches with low -- low volume.

see ya
David

Hey David, appreciate the follow up. However, I think we may have some miscommunication going on here b/c those scans seem to be pulling up some weird results.

What I'm trying to code is something that can find when the RSI(3) has crossed above the 70 area for the first time in 20 days --- BUT THAT this actually happened x days ago (a lookback period so that I can find results after the fact and not the day of).

Does this make sense?

Thanks again...

Fetcher[
avgvol(90) > 500000
not otcbb
rsi(3) crossed above 70
count(rsi(3) crossed above 70,20) equals 1
date offset is 5
]



Adjust date offset to your preference
