Trek..

"Avery, if your reading your help would be greatly appreciated. I figure it can be done with the Count feature, but I'm not very good with the complex features of SF."

I am not sure exactly what you want to count and when... post a filter and what you want it to do... will see if I can code it.

The days function only works up to the last 100 days...

Fetcher[
Set{hi52w, high 52 week high}
Set{lo52w, low 52 week low}
Set{hi/lo-Ratio, hi52w / lo52w}
SET{X, ATR(20) / CLOSE}
SET{ATR%,X * 100}

SET{HICNT, DAYS(HIGH EQUAL HIGH 7 YEAR HIGH, 100)}

ADD COLUMN HICNT

SORT COLUMN 5 DESCENDING

and add column AvgVol(20)
and add column high 7 year high
and add column ma(30)
and add column ATR(20)
and add column ATR%
and add column hi/lo-Ratio
and add column industry description

AND DRAW DARVAS BOX
and draw high 7 year high
and draw ma(30)
and do not draw hi/lo-ratio
and draw rsi(2)
and add column rsi(2)
and draw ema(13)
and draw ema(26)
and draw parabolic sar
and draw adx
and chart is candlestick

Show stocks whose price is near the 7 year high
and AvgVol(20) is above 100000
and volume is above 50000
and close is between 3 and 250
AND hi/lo-Ratio IS GREATER THAN 1.85
and market is not otcbb

Ok, the above filter returned 0 stocks, so I took out a few selection criteria to see if it works...

DANG IT, I HIT POST INSTEAD OF EDIT...

I WISH WE COULD EDIT OUR POSTS AFTER WE POST THEM!!

Ok, back to work...

A HICNT = 0 means today it hit the 7 year high.

A HICNT = 1 means 1 day ago it hit the 7 year high, etc...

Once again, I took out most of your selection criteria to see if this display is what you want.

MAY ALL YOUR FILLS BE COMPLETE.

Avery,

Here is an example using this filter:

Fetcher[Set{hi52w, high 52 week high}
Set{lo52w, low 52 week low}
Set{hi/lo-Ratio, hi52w / lo52w}
SET{X, ATR(20) / CLOSE}
SET{ATR%,X * 100}

Show stocks whose price is near the 7 year high and AvgVol(20) is above 100000 and volume is above 50000 and close is between 3 and 250 AND hi/lo-Ratio IS GREATER THAN 1.85 and market is not otcbb and add column AvgVol(20) and add column high 7 year high and add column ma(30) and add column ATR(20) and add column ATR% and add column hi/lo-Ratio and add column industry description AND DRAW DARVAS BOX and draw high 7 year high and draw ma(30) and do not draw hi/lo-ratio and draw rsi(2) and add column rsi(2) and draw ema(13) and draw ema(26) and draw parabolic sar and draw adx and chart is candlestic

Look at these stocks to see what I'm talking about.

ERS, NTRI, TOL

ERS on May 16, 2005, hit the all time high for the 1st time in months, this is the only time it should have been picked up by the filter, but as it makes new highs since May 16, it continues to be on the filter. I want stocks that has made a new high for the first time in x number of months. When they keep showing up after that date, it creates to many stocks to sort through.

NTRI should have showed up on June 28, 2005 only, but it has been on the list almost everyday since then.

TOL is a good example, it has two dates it should have been listed by the filter. Nov. 4, 2004 and May 25, 2005, but it has also been listed everyday since then.

Basically looking for stocks breaking out of a "basing" pattern for the first time in 6 months.

By the way, thanks for sharing all you ideas with everyone. I'm not a day or swing trader, as you can see I'm trying to ride the long trend, but I have still incorporated some of your ideas.

Thanks,

Trek
