I was trying to modify a filter that I got here, earlier

I need to know the stocks which closed higher today (as compared to yesterday's close) but have been closing lower for the previous 'n' days - together with the 'number of days' that they have been closing lower - so that they can be sorted

This part works fine...
Set{CC,Days(close above close 1 day ago,100)}
BUT
this gives me stocks which are closing lower - including today

If I add - Close today is greater than close 1 day ago,- it does not give me any results

Appreciate your input

Many Thanks is advance

It will help to understand what you are trying to do, if you
post your coplete screen ... but I think you may want to use:

Set{CC,COUNT(close above close 1 day ago,100)}

Thanks for the reply

my apologies - maybe I was not able to communicate my requirements
- here they are

- I want to be able to pick up the stocks which have closed higher today (vs. previous day's close)
but
before that have been closing lower for a consecutive 'n' number of days

e.g. If a stock closes at 9, 8, 7, and 6 for the past four days and today it closes at 6.50

Hope this helps

Once again, thanks in advance

Hmm ... here is a way to give you that ... I am sure there is a better way to get the results you want ...

Fetcher[
close 6 days ago is greater than close 5 day ago
and close 5 days ago is greater than close 4 day ago
and close 4 days ago is greater than close 3 day ago
and close 3 days ago is greater than close 2 day ago
and close 2 days ago is greater than close 1 day ago
and close 1 days ago is less than close

Fetcher[
set{C1DA, close 1 day ago }
set{C2DA, close 2 days ago }

set{CCb,days(C1DA is above C2DA,100)}

CCb above 4

close above close 1 day ago

Add Column CCb

close above 1
volume above 100000
]



This should give you what you want.

These are stocks with at least 4 down days before the upturn.

There is a SF bug.. Hey TomB, this doesn't work well with IPOs!!

Of course, change the volume and price to fit your needs.

MAY ALL YOUR FILLS BE COMPLETE.

xplorer - Thanks - I knew that method but wanted to avoid 'Hard-coding' the number of days - thanks again

TheRumpledOne - You're the best - this is what I was looking for - Many Thanks

You folks make this community a wonderful experience to interact
(besides stockfetcher..which is the cheapest charting tool available...I get 3 months for what i would get a month for on stockcharts.com - ...just kidding...)

Now..if stockfetcher can implement getting 3 time period charts (daily, Weekly, Monthly) with a single click....kidding again...

Thaks again, folks

Folks

Re:------if stockfetcher can implement getting 3 time period charts (daily, Weekly, Monthly) with a single click....

I guess most of you would be aware of this but for those that are not, Stockcharts.com has a gallery view - which shows multiple time periods
and
Stockconsultant.com has a multi-view which can show a chart for 5 different time periods at the same time

Hope this helps

Thanks
