Post your screen ... it makes it easier to help.

Anyways ... here is a start:

Fetcher[
price is near 52 week high
and price 1 day ago is less than price 2 day ago
and price 2 day ago is less than price 3 day ago
and price is greater than open
]

xplorer;

you said;

-----------------------------------------------------------------
First of all I am assuming from the timestamp of your post that you ran the 2 filters and got results for end of day 01/05/2005.

While I didn't eyeball each and every one, it seems that the first scan returned stocks where the close was truly lower than the preceding day.

The second filter returned 2 extra stocks, GLOB and EVN.

Note that the closing price for each of these was the same on the second and third day, VIZ:

GLOB = 1.21 & 1.21
EVN = 16.36 & 16.36

That appears to be the difference. Do you agree ?

I believe StockFetcher uses "less than or equal to" and "greater than or equal to" inequalities in the syntax for increasing, decreasing, above, and below queries, instead of "less than" or "greater than".

dangreene / Skesis ...
Thanks ... good call ... and that makes sense why those two screens differed. Little assumptions / oversights can really change the results... as this shows... thanks for the feedback on this !
