Is there a way to scan for breakouts and then a pullback to the breakout point?

ie. with OIH there is a breakout at 4/16 and then a pullback/bounce to the breakout at 5/1 for a long

with WYNN there is a breakdown at 6/9 and pullback/bounce at 6/18 for a short.

Thanks for any help!

I'm interested in this as well. So far I haven't figured out how to identify such a thing.

Hopefully there is a more general way to do this using indicators


Soooo many breakout periods.......... 5 day , 20 day, .......52 week.

Sooo many time periods for it to pull back to breakout level.

Here is ONE way to do ONE specific short term breakout/pull back period.

Seems like a pattern recognition type problem.

I was hoping the spinning wheels comment would spin a better wheel!

Fetcher[/* intentionally set to 2 here and 3 elsewhere . seems to work better*/
set{floor, 2 day high 6 days ago}

close 5 days ago reached a new 3 day high

/* this is the 1st day reached 3 day high, in othr words not up several days in a row*/
count(close 5 days ago reached a new 3 day high, 3) is between 0 and 2

close has been above floor for the last 4 days

/* since new 3 day high it went up at least 7% */
count(close is 7 percent above floor, 5) is above 0

/* the pullback*/
close is less than 2% above floor

draw floor on plot close
close > 1
avg vol(30) > 100000
draw price line at floor
do not draw close 3 day high

I have'nt seen a filter for this one,but its a great idea.What I do is watch 52wk,6mo,90 day breakouts,which you can set up a filter for,on a daily basis.Its also a good thing to have multiple charts of what you are watching.Wait until they pull back near the breakout area,then enter if they take out the previous days high plus .10,that simple....

Fetcher[close reached a new 90 day high within the last 30 days
close > 10
avg vol(90) > 300000

Watching for pullbacks on the 90 day highs for 30 days is a cummulative monster if you "let in" as much as above.

Winnowing down ie: "apply to sector(metals and mining,chemicals,energy)" and other ways helps, but, it would be nice if SF could:

- In the last 60 days,

- latch the price of the first 52 week high in the last 30 days (30 days is not a typo and has nothing to do with the 60 days above)

-and show those who are near this price.

StockFetcher ?....... O'le buddy o'le pal............ Any chance?

prokewl -

It's funny you should ask, because this very thing you are asking, I have done in my new MACD / DMA filter. I promised to leave the forum for reason's I don't want to get into right now, buy you can e-mail me at, and I'll be glad to send you just what you're looking for. Just please give me your word that you WONT post it anywhere here. This forum is up to here with drama, and it needs a bit of a break. This filter might be some of my best work to date. But I need to give credit to "chetron", and "TRO"....they played an intrical part in it's coding.
