"I have tried variations of the following phrase to no avail.

show stocks where price touched ma(10) for the last 10 days"


maybe my simple mind will actually help this situation?

show stocks where
price touched ma(10) 1 day ago
and price touched ma(10) 2 days ago
and price touched ma(10) 3 days ago
and price touched ma(10) 4 days ago
and price touched ma(10) 5 days ago
and price touched ma(10) 6 days ago
and price touched ma(10) 7 days ago
and price touched ma(10) 8 days ago
and price touched ma(10) 9 days ago

I have no idea if that would work, just seams like it would accomplish what you are after.

Hope i helped.

>> I want the touched price to work so I can find stocks that are, pricewise, traveling in a horizontal direction. these stocks are in a quiet mode when doing this with no swings up or down. <<
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I also like the kind of stocks that you describe and use the following scan which returned "TFS" from Dec 13 thru Dec 27, 2004

Fetcher[ /* ADC less than 2.5% for 5 days */
Show stocks where market is NYSE
and Absolute Day Change has been below 2.5 percent for the last 5 days
and close is between 1.00 and 3.01
and average volume(60) is above 100000
and offset is 4
]



Good luck with it.

Rsarno - You would think that that would work, but, it doesn`t. If you run it, the price does not always touch the moving average line each time. That was why I was wondering if the touched keyword was limited to a single day, instead of multiple days.

Dan Greene

That filter works pretty good, it does bring in some consolidated stocks. I have worked with the ADC before also. I think I was trying to do an Average ADC, with no luck. Thanks for sharing your filter. here are one`s that I have been using that also have hits on the price pattern that I`m looking for. So far though I have not found one that gets them all. Thats why I was looking at the price touched ma(10). That should do it I believe, if I could get it to work properly.

Consolidation 1

Show stocks where 60 day slope of close 46 days ago is < -.1 46 days ago
and close is above the upper ascending triangle(45,5)

Consolidation 2

Show stocks where bollinger(20) width reached 6 month low
And the upper Bollinger band(20) is converging towards the lower bollinger band(20) over the last 41 days
and slow stochastics(21,3) is increasing for 1 day

Consolidation 3

show stocks where Bollinger width(20) has been decreasing for 15 days

Consolidation 4

show stocks where the 10 day slope of ma(3) is between -.01 and .01
and 10 day slope of bollinger width(20) is < 0 for the last 10 days within the last 10 days

Consolidation 5

show stocks where 15 day slope of ma(3) is between -.01 and .01
and 15 day slope of bollinger width(20) is < 0 for the last 15 days within the last 15 days

Consolidation 6

Show stocks where ma(5) has been below ma(50) for the last 30 days
and slow stochastics(21,3) is below 25
and slow stochastics(21,3) is increasing for 1 day

SurfnDestiny,

Check this out!

By PRICE touching MA(10) I take it that you want to see MA(10) embraced within the daily range ie: High - Low.

It doesn't look like MA(10) touching price will "get them all" either as "TFS" is not selected.

/* MA(10) vs HIGH and LOW */

Yes,.... but a tweeking of variables brings it on in!. Excellent work Dangreene, I did not think of below and above high - low. Thank You!.

Now, I we will see if the moving average will bring the results we want. I want to try differing lengths of days, for the consolidation, and tweek the slope variable for the flat line I`m looking for.

Since your so good. Heres the next problem.-- Making the slope command look for straight flat lines over an extended period of time. I`ve tried something like this: (2 day slope of close over the last 10 days is between -.1 and .1).It doesn`t work. Basically I want the slope of whatever I`m examining to be flat however many days I specify. The slope seems to be measured only between two points IE: beginning and end. Whatever is in between can swing pretty far up and down, and is not measured. I would have thought having a flat slope every day for however many days would show a flat line. It doesn`t. Perhaps a different wording will do the trick. ----Thanks----

Oh, another thought... The consolidated stock pattern we are looking for usually has low volume going on. so I actually remove any kind of volume filter from the text. In some cases you might actually use a "less than" equation in the volume to find these consolidations. Just a thought.

I`ve added a bollinger width command. That seems to help define the pattern a little better.

Exactly...there must be a way to have a flat consolidation line of the stocks so we can place break out buys above it....seems easy ....but nothings seems to reel them in.... I even tried making slope line = 0 and it doesnt work.

Slope = 0 is so finite and precise that nothing would probably match it. but you can get straight lines easily by just lowering the measurement down to the thousanths place or more if needed. "slope is between -.001 and .001" will give a pretty horizontal and level straight line.

But the problem is if you do that say, over a thirty day period, you may find some matches, but whatever you are measuring can wobble quite a bit in those thirty days from the straight line, because it seems to be measuring between only day 1 and day 30, or... perhaps it is averaging all the days in between to calculate slope. But whichever it is, what I want, is to find a straight line for the whole thirty days if need be, and the best I can think of is: "2 day slope of close is between -.01 and .01 over the last 30 days". It doesn`t work. It ignores the "Over the last 30 days" part.

I don't know if this is a help or not. I moved "Market is not OTCB" and tweeked the slope. The position of the market indication in the filter seems to make a difference in how it filter works.
