decipherlinda, your scan does find some interesting volume patterns. I spent some time playing with it to reduce the number of hits and found that if I added the following conditions:

high reached 10 week high within the last 4 weeks
optionable
MACD Fast Line(12,26,9) at 4 week low
CMA(OBV, 10) above CMA(OBV, 20)

it returned some interesting chart patterns. Running it today, for example, finds a few stocks like CNP and CHSI that look like they may be ready to make a swing back up. I'm not making "buy" recommendations for these of course, just saying it does find some patterns that are worth looking at. With a little more thought, could be something worth backtesting.

The way to make the scans "clickable" (thanks to Chetron for explaining this to me) is to type Fetcher[ before the code and a final closed backet at the end.

CLICKABLE..........
Fetcher[

ATR(1) has been decreasing for the last 2 days
and RSI(2) > RSI(2) 1 day ago
average volume(5) < average volume(5) 1 day ago
and close > .9999
and average volume(5) > 100000

set{A, ATR(1) / ATR(1) 1 day ago}
set{B, A - 1}
set{ATR1, B * 100}
add column ATR1
add column ATR1 1 day ago {ATR2}

add column RSI(2)
add column RSI(2) 1 day ago
set{RSIDif, RSI(2) - RSI(2) 1 day ago}
add column RSIDif

set{C, average volume(5) / average volume(5) 1 day ago}
set{D, C -1}
set{AV5, D * 100}
high reached 10 week high within the last 4 weeks
optionable
MACD Fast Line(12,26,9) at 4 week low
CMA(OBV, 10) above CMA(OBV, 20)

Thanks for both your input. Realized I didn't put "and" in ront of "average volume(5) < average volume(5) 1 day ago" so added that and changed Chetron's adaptation of my filter to include the new recommended criteria as part of the filter criteria (top of the filter). I knew it would be easy to put the filter in clickable format but just didn't worry about it. Thanks for the improvements! I haven't run it so hopefully this works!

FYI, YOU ONLY NEED TO PUT "AND" BETWEEN LINES THAT YOU DON'T PUT A "LINE FEED", "ENTER", OR A "CARRIAGE RETURN".
