I am trying to create a filter that finds stocks that haven't moved much, stocks that are consolidating. I have tried writing " show stocks that have gained less than 20 percent in last 6 months" but it says I have errors. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Its got to be something easy. HEEELLLPPPP

Navyman -


This will give you stocks in a trading range:

Fetcher[Pattern is monthly bullish Harami and average volume(90)is above 100000 and draw ema(3)draw ema(13)draw ema(50)draw ema(200)draw bollinger bands(20,2.0)and add column industry]




This will give you a more recent consolidation:

Fetcher[Pattern is weekly bullish Harami and average volume(90)is above 100000 and draw ema(3)draw ema(13)draw ema(50)draw ema(200)draw bollinger bands(20,2.0)and add column industry]




This should help for now until big guns see your post. Then you better brush up on your calculus. LOL....

Navyman,

I'm certainly not one of those "big guns". I suggest that, as a new user, a good start would be to look in the upper r/h part of this page for the clickable "User Guide" link and get started learning the SF.

Sort by z to get smallest to largest consolidation. If you want smaller or larger timeframe then adjust line 1,12 and 13 to something else. Price to z ratio is how far the current price is from the top or bottom of the channel...

Fetcher[set{x,high 4 week high}
set{y,low 4 week low}
set{z,x - y}

/* Price to Z Ratio*/
set{hc, close - x }
set{hcc, hc / x }
set{c2hr, hcc * 100}

set{x16,high 16 week high}
set{y16,low 16 week low}
set{z16,x16 - y16}

and high is below x for last 4 weeks
and low is above y for last 4 weeks

and volume(90) above 50000
and close above 2
add column x
add column y
add column z
add column z16
add column c2hr
do not draw x
do not draw y
do not draw z
do not draw z16
do not draw bollinger bands
do not draw Linear Regression Channel(60,1.0)

draw high line at x
draw low line at y

Two questions
1. My understanding is that SF does not provide monthly close prices - your first filter may not give desired results

2. I ran the following filter - it gives some unwanted results, also
e.g. ADM - where the price does not touch the lower bollinger band
- any help provided to fix this anomaly will be really appreciated

Pattern is weekly bullish Harami
and average volume(90)is above 1000000
and close is between 5 and 25
and price crossed lower weekly bollinger bands(20) within the last 2 weeks
and chart display is weekly
draw weekly bollinger bands(20)
add column industry

Thanks in advance

JOHNYYUMA -

Sorry I missed your post, but I don't think I could have helped you as much as TRO anyway. IMO I think we tend to lose site of the "weekly" filters with everything else around here. For me, thats where everything begins,(weekly filters)then out of those filters, others start to grow legs. I'm glad TRO was able to help you.

RIGGS.

Riggs, and everyone else,

"IMO I think we tend to lose site of the "weekly" filters with everything else around here."

Life makes it difficult for me to trade consistently on a daily basis. I have been spending time recently adapting my filters to a weekly time frame. My reasoning, yet to be tested with real money, is a bar is a bar; 15 minute, 1 day , 1 week . If my usual stop is slightly below low of previous day then why shouldnt I experience similar results setting a stop slightly below the low of the previous weeks bar.

I happen to favor Lower BB, Low rsi(2) methods but I dont think that is important. Shouldn't any sound trading plan be adaptable to a greater/higher time frame. Or, not? I would welcome any/many opinions on this.

This should probably be in the parking lot. Sorry Alf44.
