I want to screen for stocks that have NOT had a sharp decrease in price within the last 2 weeks. Basically, no falling knieves. thanks

Does it mean then that as long as there is no "sharp" decline all the other criteria would be okay? What about a moderate decline? A moderate increase? A steep advance?

If so, the easiest way to solve the problem is to first find those stocks that have made the plunge over the past 2 weeks, and then subtract them from the rest of the stock universe. What remain are those that have not been forced to jump off the cliff.

set{rtn1, price / price 5 days ago}
set{rtn2, rtn1 - 1}
set{rtn, rtn2 * 100}
set{rtn%, count(rtn below -5,1)}
set{nortn, 1 - rtn%}
nortn equals 1

price above 5
and avgvol(17) above 300000

add column rtn{2wk_return}
sort column 5 ascending

The column "2wk_return" shows the actual profit or loss made (in percentage) over the previous 2 weeks.
