Hello all,

Just looking to see how I can find stocks that have made a 20 percent move (or any percent) in one day but that it occurred x days ago?

For instance, what syntax will properly work when looking to find stocks that have made a big percentage move 20 days ago?

I thought that all I needed to do was put 20 days aog (or whatever number) at the end of a basic price gained syntax, but that didn't seem to work, so I thought I would ask those that are more familiar with using SF code...

Thank you very much,

J

you can always use something like this ...

close more than 10% above close 1 day ago

offset 20

]



You probably want to screen out penny stocks and low liquidity stocks since you will get killed on the spread. This filter should help.

close more than 10% above close 1 day ago
close above 1
count(close * volume above 1000000,10) above 9

offset 20

Works perfectly... thanks!

Essentially just looking for minor consolidations following big moves... does what I need.
