OK...a few questions concerning channelling stocks:

Can I specify a minimum Channel "Width"? For Example, say I'd like to screen for Narrow 90 Day Channel where distance between upper and lower range of channel is at least $x or alternately the distance is at least x%.

Also, can I screen for a *minimum* number of days rather than a specific number? For example, rather than screening for stocks in a "Narrow 45 day channel" could I specify stocks which have been channelling for *at least* 45 days. This would be simpler since I'd not need to run a seperate scan for 45, 60, and 90 day channels respectively. I could then add other filters to narrow down the large list.

I'm thinking of something along these lines:

Find all stocks which have been trading in a channel for at least 30 days AND
Top of channel is at least 5% higher than bottom of channel AND
Stock closed at (or near?) lower boundry of channel AND
Slow Stochastic is approaching 20 from below AND
Slow Stochastic %D has crossed above %K within last day
Average volume is at least 100,000 AND
Stock price is between 5 and 20

You see what I'm getting at? Thanks in advance for any help with this and as a new subscriber thanks to the StockFetcher staff for their excellent tool and participants for their great contributions.
