I'm trying to come up with a filter to find stocks that gap up 2 to 3 days in a row. Can someone help me out? Thanks!

Hi
Try this you can change the gaps % and the days to suit you.

Fetcher[
open > 1% above close 1 day ago and open 1 day ago > 1% above close 2 days ago and close > 1 and volume > 900,000
]



You might want to substitute open > 1% above high instead of close

See ya

Yet the pebble eludes you..When you can fetch the pebble from my hand,you will be ready Grasshopper.
Fetcher[apply to symlist(DRYS,EXM,GNK,EGLE) and 4 day slope of upper bollinger band(12) is below 0 and 4 day slope of lower bollinger band(12) is above 0 and 3 day slope of close is above -.05 and volume(10) is above 500000 and draw bollinger band(12) and draw median bollinger band(12) and offset 12/05/2008]

Now Master, can you create a filter that scans the general market and achieves the desired results rather than running against a symlist of cherry picked stocks?

Yes.Just remove the symlist and add close above 1 in it's place.The reason I put those in a symlist is because they came off that multi day gapper filter above.Try it yourself.It is nice to get a shot a multi day gapper or even a healthy green bar the day before so this is how I utilize Stockfetcher to develop my filters.The goal should be to start at the footstep of the green mountain Grasshopper.

I thought this one is interesting.

Fetcher[
set { a, open / close 1 day ago} and set {b,open 1 day ago / close 2 days ago} and close > 1 and volume > 900,000
and a > 1.02 and b > 1.02 and add column a and add column b and set {c, a + b} add column c
and sort column 7 descending
]



This one gives the biggest gappers and you can sort for the big gappers today (a) or the biggest gappers yesterday (b)
This is sorted for the combined gaps.
See ya
David
