Maybe I'm just sleep deprived... but I am trying to get a filter phrase that will let me search for PREVIOUS highs and lows x number of days ago.

Something like "WHERE PREVIOUS LOW WAS AT LEAST 10 DAYS AGO"

and I am failing....

Any help would be appreciated.

"WHERE PREVIOUS LOW WAS AT LEAST 10 DAYS AGO"
______________________

This will find a 1-month low that occured anywhere between 11 and 20 days ago.

Fetcher[
days(price reached low 1 month low,20) above 10
price above 20
and avgvol(17) above 300000

Thanks that is helpful.

I'm still struggeling though beacues the first part of my filter would find stocks that reached a new 15 day low.

Then I want make sure I'm only grabbing stocks whose PREVIOUS 15 day low (the one before the current one I just found) did NOT occur in the past 5 days.

Make sense?
Hope I'm not talking in circles.
Thanks very much for the reply - still working with it.

Frankly speaking, no it doesn't make much sense. But I take it that ure talking about two separate lows and the previous low is lower than the current low that happened no sooner than 5 days ago. In balance, then, ure looking for an uptrend (by connecting the dots between the two lows) with the previous 5 days rallying from the recent low.

Ure more than welcome to correct me if I'm wrong. I also believe that a picture is worth a thousand words. Next time, just upload a chart that shows what ure looking for. ;)

hehe sorry.
Well yes I am looking for two seperate 15 day lows.
And yes I am also trying to ensure that the earlier one happened at least 5 days ago.

But the earlier 15 day low need not be lower than the most recent one, just that it (at the time) was a 15 day low - and that it happened at least 5 days before THIS one.

You are right a picture would probably help. :)
I will try to find one.

Thanks again for all the help.

This might be what I'm looking for.

show stocks where low reached a new 15 day low
set{this_low,low}
and price has been above this_low for the last 5 days


... been awhile since I tried to build one of these filters. :)
