I am not sure how to write this and could use some help.

yesterdays close was higher than the day before
yesterdays volume was higher than the day before
todays open was a gap up
todays current volume is double yesterdays total volume
current price is at least 90% of todays HOD
price is between 1 and 50
volume greater than 1000000


looking forward to help, thanks.

Fetcher[
set{vvol,volume 1 day ago * 2}
set{ptarget, high *.9}
close 1 day ago is greater then close 2 days ago
and volume 1 day ago is greater then volume 2 days ago
and Close-to-open gap is above 0
and volume is greater then vvol
and price is greater then ptarget
and price is between 1 and 50
and volume is greater then 1000000
]




I haven't tried this yet....may need some fixing...may not...but its a start.

Fetcher[
/*yesterdays close was higher than the day before*/
close 1 day ago above close 2 days ago

/*yesterdays volume was higher than the day before*/
volume 1 day ago above volume 2 days ago

/*todays open was a gap up (by how much??) -- fill in the blank {ie. gap above 3, namely 3%}*/
gap above ??

/*todays current volume is double yesterdays total volume*/
set{2xVol,2 * volume 1 day ago}
count(volume above 2xVol,1) equals 1

/*current price is at least 90% of todays HOD */
set{HiLo, High - Low}
set{ClLo, Close - Low}
set{range, ClLo / HiLo}
set{ratio, range * 100}
ratio above 89

price is between 1 and 50
volume greater than 1000000
]

The hyperlink thing doesn't seem to work (as of now) so you'll need to manually copy/paste the above filter into the fetcher window. Also, it appears that this particular filter is too restrictive. You might want to loosen it up to get more hits.
