Relatively new at creating my own syntax, and I was wondering if there was a way to specify where the price is in relation to a moving average? For instance, is there syntax available that can find stocks that are (x)% above/below their respective moving averages (such as 1% above the 50(MA), but 1% below the 20(MA))? Also, I was wondering if anyone is aware of a price filter syntax that can scan for price contraction, such as the narrowest range in the past (x) days?

Any help/direction is greatly appreciated,

Thanks,

Jon (jmiles301@gmail.com)

Try this for a start. Change "less than" / "more than" and values to suit.
Fetcher[show stocks where close is less than 1 percent above MA(50) and close is less than 1% below MA(20)
and Average Volume(90) is above 5000000
and close is between 5 and 250
and date offset 1 day
]



Try entering "narrow range", All Documents, in the Search Feature.

thanks for the reply -- appreciate it. i have tried to use what you provided as a starter, and for some reason the syntax doesn't appear to be bringing up what it should be ...

for instance, i am using:

"Show stocks where close is less than 1% above MA(50) and close is more than 2% below MA(20)
and Average Volume(90) is above 5000000
and close is between 5 and 250
and date offset 1 day"

and the list includes MO, WM, WB, ALTR, STX to name a few ... which, as far as I can tell do not fit the criteria. am i missing something here? essentially, I am trying to scan for moving average bounce candidates with this particular filter.

i think i might have figured out what i was doing wrong. it seems to be a real quick fix ...

i used...

"Show stocks where price is more than 1% above ma(50) and price is more than 2% below ma(20)"

and that seemed to work (this was feedback left from another poster in the other forum). not sure what exactly was wrong with the other syntax. thx for the response again..
