I have been wriing against a position to adjust if it goes in the wrong direction. This is best done when the original entry is near a strike price which comes in increments of 5. Is there a way to add a filter to the great ones here that will select stocks that are in a particular range. The simple answer I've been using is for example: close is between 30 and 31 etc.. But it would be great to filter for a group such as: close between 30 and 31 and/or 35 and 36 and/or 40 and 41 etc.. I looked for an OR statement in SF but could not find it. I think this would be be very helpful to option traders who adjust positions when things go bad, as they often do.


Thanks

Wow it's amazing you wrote this so many yrs ago. I got it to work for two sets but can't seem to work it out for three. I guess I don't understand exactly how to use sets here. This is what I tried to do. If you can show me how to string these sets I'd really appreciate it.

/* Permission to publish or post on any other forum DENIED */
/* ----------------------------------------------------------------*/
set{A, count(close between 30 and 31, 1)}
set{B, count(close between 40 and 41, 1)}
set{C, count(close between 50 and 51, 1)}
set{OR1, A + B+C} show stocks where OR1 above 0



It works for a set{OR1, A+B) but not for A+B+C

Thanks
