I just tried your filter and got back 3710 results. It works fine.

Try this...
1) Select the biotechnology and drugs sector from the home page under Industry...you have to hit <MORE> because it's on a second page
3) Click <ADD TO MY FILTERS> to save the result to your filter list
4) Click <EDIT> on that filter
5) Click <ADD> and then enter CLOSE BELOW 10 in the new filter link box
6) Click <SAVE> and then <VIEW SCREEN>

There were 133 matches. You can edit the link filter to add more screening parameters if you want in addition to the CLOSE BELOW 10.

Fetcher [sector is biotechnology and close is below 10] returned 3710 results because 'sector is biotechnology' was ignored by the filter due to bad syntax, so only the 'close is below 10' returned. Thats why it showed 3710 results.

I'd be nice if were able to tell you about the parts of your filter that could not be understood.

Hey, thanks for posting:
industry is biotechnology-and-drugs and volume...
that's great! Can you help with
identifing other industries? like:

industry is Scientific and Technical Instr. and volume...

(note: putting in hyphens for spaces won't work). I'm pretty new here, but
don't see a way to look up many other industry-specific static variables.

Thanks for any suggestions,
buzz

BuzzCraft:
I have no clue how to do the "scientific" sort. What does Instr. stand for?
We NEED to work on this though. Sector rotation is very important in finding upcoming winners and loser. I think biotech is the next sector/industry to make a big run.

Thanks for the reference to MsftMoney.
I wonder how you do a sector search by performance on SF??
Any clues?
