I have yet to discover how to run a scan and get results for multiple days rather than just for one day...What is the trick?

After running your filter, on the bottom left you will see x results from (date). Hover your cursor over the date and it will give you choices of how far back you can go. Repeatedly using one day ago will walk you back on day at a time.

Shortcut: Clicking the "date" link will move you back by the day.

Yes thanks, I do know how to run one day at a time. I was wondering if I could run a scan over a period of time and look at the results together. The backtest gives me results but not indicator levels etc.

Do you mean something like

Fetcher[
apply to symlist(SPY)
add column rsi(2)
add column rsi(2) 1 day ago {rsi2 -1}
add column rsi(2) 2 days ago {rsi2 -2}
add column rsi(2) 3 days ago {rsi2 -3}
add column rsi(2) 4 days ago {rsi2 -4}
add column rsi(2) 5 days ago {rsi2 -5}
add column rsi(2) 6 days ago {rsi2 -6}
]



You will have to follow the format similar, but this appears to be what your asking for.

Yes- that is kind of it... not really though. Your scan shows features for a symbol list by day. I am looking to run a scan and get the hits that come from it- but over 3 months... I will play with your idea and see if I can do anything....

thanks

Isn't that basically backtesting against a specific indicator?

Have you looked at SF's backtesting capability?

Kevin- You got it.. I can add as many indicators to the backtest results to get my data!!! I never noticed that feature before.

Thanks.
