I made this tonight to find the best candidates for a day trade / flipper watch list. I am after a list I can get comfortable with and be able to keep close tabs on each stock without the mental stress. Is this too selective? Anything I should change?

Fetcher[
/* Stocks that easily absorb 25K trades sorted by day range */

set{mass,average close(5) * average volume(5)}
add column mass
mass above 10000000
average day range(90) above 10%
add column average day range(90)
add column average volume(90)
add column rsi(2)
sort column 6 descending
]



Tried to make it clickable but ?????

quicktrades:

There are good candidates on the naz that handle 25k that run avg vol above 4 mil as well (JNPR/NVLS/JASO). Play with the avg vol a bit and maybe look at ATR. I trade naz and this is what I used to get the initial list of targets. 10 million avg vol may eliminate some good, tradable intra-day stocks..

Thanks chetron, I couldn't understand why it wouldn't work, it seemed pretty simple to me.

luc1grunt, I will play with the volume and see what it looks like, thanks.

Looking for a way to get this to only look at days where close was above open.
Any suggestions?

Mass is refering to the average amont of money that flows through the stock in a day. I am not concerned about volume but with the amount of money flowing throught the stock. This does return stocks trading as low as 1 mil. Now I need to get it to look at green days only. Then we will have a scan pulling the top day trading candidates. Any idea how to get it to look at green days?

I ain't too sure about the "average close(5)" in ure filter. If you run the following line, you would see that SF merely treats it as today's close:

Fetcher[add column average close(5)]


If you truly want the average of the last 5 closes, you'll want to add up the last 5 closes and divide the figure by 5. Here's a quick fix:

Fetcher[
set{avg5cl, sum(close,5) / 5}
add column avg5cl{avgcl(5)}
]

set{mass,avg5cl * average volume(5)}
add column mass

average day range(90) above 10%
add column average day range(90)
add column average volume(90)
sort column 5 descending

OK, thats better, thanks. Now we need to look at green days only.

If you break down the StochRSI(14,3), you would essentially get the following:

code

StochRSI(14,3) =
(Today's RSI(14) - lowest RSI(14) over the last 3 days)
覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧
(highest RSI(14) over the last 3 days - lowest RSI(14) over the last 3 days)

Not quite what I am looking for. I need the average % day gain of green days only over a given period.
