it has 2 SMA's on the chart.

10 SMA based on HIGH(not close price)
8 SMA based on LOW(not close price)

Then, I want to scan for a close either completely above the 10 or a close completely below the 8.

Thanks in advance

You will have to use TRO's work around for if then else to do this. Also stock fetcher uses ma not sma.

Thanks so far. The closest i got so far is from compound gains. But in this scan many of the stocks in scan are either touching the MA on the top side or bottom side. The close needs to be COMPLETELY above or BELOW the MA's.

So control for how much above or below the moving average you want it to be. I used 1% but set your own.

Fetcher[
set{hghma1, cma(high, 10)}
set{lwma1, cma(low, 8)}
set{chk1, count(close more than 1% below lwma1, 1)}
set{chk2, count(close more than 1% above hghma1, 1)}
set{chk, chk1 + chk2}
chk > 0
set{hghma, close / hghma1}
set{lwma, close / lwma1}
add column hghma
add column lwma
draw hghma1 on plot price
draw lwma1 on plot price
close > 5
count(volume > 150000, 21) equals 21

" The close needs to be COMPLETELY above or BELOW the MA's"

--
Do you mean "close" or do you really mean the High and Low (High or Low completely clears the MA) ?

I typed the wrong thing. Sorry about that. I mean the high and low. So if the top MA is 50.00 for example the the price can not come down and touch 50.00. It can move down to 50.01 though.

For the bottom MA, if using the 50.00 number again, the high that day cannot come up to 50.00. It could come up to 49.99
