Arthur, you should really read the manual. This is a very elementary filter.

hi, i know the filter, but it doesnt catch all of the stocks where they actually touched the low the prior day. for instance:

show stocks where low touched ma(50) within the last 1 day


and the stock that did that was WFT and it doesnt show up on the scan. can you tell me why?

art,

The reason why WFT was left out was prolly because its low wasn't within a spitting distance from the ma(50). But who can know for certain since the term "touching" is ambiguous at best.

You should note, however, that "show stocks where low touched ma(50) within the last 1 day" doesn't refer to the low of yesterday but rather to today's low (so methinks).

I would think the proper expression should be
Fetcher["show stocks where low 1 day ago touched ma(50) 1 day ago"]



But, here's how I would approach it:

Fetcher[
count(low crossed below ma(50),2) above 0
close above ma(50)
]
