Looking for a stock symbol that produces a nearly-like 0% return to use in a Comparative script I've been working on. I tried these 2 money markets, but they don't exist in SF: VMFXX and FSLXX.

BIL and SHV wiggle a little. I'm looking for no wiggle...in essence, NO return.

Any ideas?

fortyfour,

I wanted a flat line return as the baseline.....not a negative line! .

Still looking for a stock symbol in SF that equates to a nearly (flat-line) 0% return. I'm looking to put this into a Comparative script as the "baseline" for comparision purposes.

Does anyone know if there is a Money Market symbol in SF?

Can't you compare to a constant?

You said, "Can't you compare to a constant?

Not sure what you mean. SHV and BIL aren't exact constants. They still wiggle a bit. I'm looking for a non-wiggly line, so that when I use the SF Comparative indicator, my baseline shows 1.0 consecutive days. Does SF have any money markets (pretty constant) in its database of stocks?

Fetcher[set{nadir, 1.0}
comparative relative strength(nadir,200) is between 0.9999 and 1.0001

Stocktrader, Could you briefly explain your suggestion below. I'm just at the 101 level in SF scripting.

Thanks.

Not much to explain. Just trying to interpret what you are looking for. Everyone seems to be drawing a blank as to what you exactly need.

Just applying a constant named nadir to the comparative relative strength screening within a range of 1.
