hello everyone, can anyone tell me how to write a filter showing a stock that has been trending up in price over the last week, or month or year. Also, a strock that has been trending down in price for the last day, month or year. I was trying to find such a filter with no luck

I am sure there are many ways to approach this problem but how about something like this?

Week
Fetcher[
5 day slope of the close is above 1.0
]



Fetcher[
20 day slope of the close is above 1.0
]



Fetcher[
200 day slope of the close is above 1.0
]

I am not sure what you are really trying to get to but, here are other possible approaches to the problem. Each having it's own short commings and strengths.

I expect that the answer you are really looking for would use the slope of an EMA or MA over some period of time. In my opinion different techniques apply to determining a 5 day trends when compared to month or year long trends. You may also consider using some of the Volume weighted measures to help get the stocks you are looking for.

This would be a very broad definition of a trending stock:

Maybe combine this with ADX to get what you want
Fetcher[
ma(10) has been increasing for the past 5 days
]



or

Fetcher[
LRS(45) is above 0
]



or

Here is a very narrow definition of a trending stock with upward direction built in:

Fetcher[
price has been increasing for the past 10 days
]



I hope this helps.
