I am using the Darvas Box method to find the break outs with StockFetcher[show stocks upper Darvas Box 1 day ago is above 0 and high is above upper Darvas Box 1 day ago AND AVGVOL(90) > 500000 and volume > 1000000] and it corresponds very closely to the algorithm used by Sethi on his web page. In theory, according to Nick Darvas, one would buy when the break out occurs, ie, the signal generated by the above script. However, Sethi suggests using at least three stacked Darvas boxes before generating the signal. Does anyone have a sugestion on how to fetch those stocks that have a setting like Last Daravs Box > Previous Darvas Box > Previous Darvas Box?

Thanks for any help!

Jeff

This might be what you are looking for. I couldnt figure out how to get the average volume into the filter, but it may be because no stocks were found.

set{db1, Darvas Box 1 day ago is above 0} set{db2, Darvas Box 2 day ago is above 0} set{db3, Darvas Box 3 day ago is above 0}and db1 is above db2 and db2 is above db3

You create your own custom sets and name them db1, db2 and db3. then make your criteria say db1 > db2 > db3.

Look at the results (4 found for today) and see if the charts match. I dont know much about darvis boxes.

I'm following the darvas w/ fetcher, I noticed it is not exactly like sethi, but very close.

I enter the IBD top 100 and follow them for a breakout. So far results have been satisfactory.
