I would like to show stocks where the daily price, open to close increased for the last 3 days and the daily volume for each of the last 3 days was greater than the 10 day moving average volume. As an example:

Show stocks where close has been increasing for 3 days and volume > average volume(10) for the last 3 days.

Thanks, Jeff.

Jeff,

You seemed to have answered ure own question. When I ran the above filter, all of the matches met ure stated objective. Is there something else you expect to achieve?

Nikoschopen, would you mind checking this. I ran many versions comparing price and volume. This version returned price correctly, but it seemed my daily volume criteria vs. my avg volume(10)was incorrect. I checked the data manually on Yahoo and it could be their volume data is incorrect. I would like to show stocks where the daily price, open to close increased for the last 3 days and the daily volume for each of the last 3 days was less than the 10 day moving average volume. As an example:

Show stocks where close has been increasing for 3 days and volume < average volume(10) for the last 3 days.
Thanks.

hairyhead. You must always treat your instructions to stockfetchers filters with exact statements and assume nothing. The filters do not assume. Add the following line. and the close has been greater than the open for the last 3 days
Live long and prosper

Jeff,

The second filter you provided above yielded stocks that, for the most part, had three days of white candles with volumes under the 10-day moving average. Hence I'm led to believe we're having a minor communication problem.

When you write "open to close increased for the last 3 days":

(1) do you mean the stock simply closed higher incrementally for the next 3 days (ie. Friday's close is higher than Thursday's close, which in turn is higher than Wednesday's close)?

OR

(2) do you mean the range of the "body" (open to close) that has subsequently increased for the next 3 days (ie. Wednesday had the body of $0.30, Thurdsday $0.50, and Friday $0.70)?


As heypa has already stated, it's not enough to merely conceptualize; you must learn to articulate ure thoughts in a machine-like semantics without any room for question.

Nikoschopen and heypa, thanks for the help. I'm new to developing filters, but you'll help clarify things. Problem solved. Thanks again.
