Max,

Many traders, including myself, have come to rely on the "Bollinger squeeze" pattern for a potential breakouts. The B.S. that we're so fond of (especially around here *wink wink*) can be easily located using the predefined measures—Bollinger Width, Bollinger Oscillator, & Bollinger %B—provided in the Index section.

maxxam80,

The following filter will screen for stocks that broke either above or below their respective Bollinger band following a "squeeze":

Fetcher[
Bollinger width(20) has reached a new 6 month low
set{breakout,count(Bollinger %B(20,2.0) crossed above 1,1) + count(Bollinger %B(20,2.0) crossed below 0,1)}
breakout above 0
draw Bollinger(20)
]

Here's a slight variation of the above filter that will fetch a bigger catch:

Fetcher[
count(Bollinger width(20) is below 0.05,10) above 9
set{breakout,count(Bollinger %B(20,2.0) crossed above 1,1) + count(Bollinger %B(20,2.0) crossed below 0,1)}
breakout above 0
draw Bollinger(20)
]
