I am trying to construct a filter to show those stocks where the high has increased by at least 5% each day for the past five days. Can someone please offer some suggestions?

Thanks,
Tom

close above 1
Set{var1, high 1 day ago *1.05}
count(high above var1, 5) above 4

This works. However, you do not get many hits with this approach. You can remove the "close above 1" if you are comfortable trading penny stocks.

Thanks Kevin.

I got the cobwebs out and came up with one too...

Fetcher[
set{diff, high - high yesterday}
set{diff2, diff / high yesterday}
set{diff3, count(diff2 > .05, 5)}
diff3 equal 5
]



But I think that yours is more elegant!!!!!
