Can anyone tell me why this will not work beyond 5 days?

todays close below close one day ago
todays close below close two days ago
todays close below close three days ago
todays close below close four days ago
todays close below close five days ago

I know there are other screens (like this one below) that do this but the results are not the same.

Show stocks where Close has been decreasing over the last 1 week

I'm looking for stock that have fallen in price for ten days... not eleven, twelve are more... just ten.

Thanks Kevin.

Out of 10833 symbols on stock fetcher only two fell in price for ten days...hard to believe.

Should this not show the same thing?

Show stocks where Close has been decreasing over the last 10 days
close 10 days ago was above close 11 days ago

Better yet
todays close below close 1 day ago
todays close below close 2 days ago
todays close below close 3 days ago
todays close below close 4 days ago
todays close below close 5 days ago
todays close below close 6 days ago
todays close below close 7 days ago
todays close below close 8 days ago
todays close below close 9 days ago
todays close below close 10 days ago
close 10 days ago is above close 11 days ago

Stock fetcher likes numeric not alpha... i.e. "1 day" not "one day"
Funny they all give different answers

That's because the two filters ask different questions.

The one I posted looks only for those stocks where the close has decreased every day from the prior day's close.

The one you posted only requires that TODAY's close be below previous day's close value. Example - today after nine straight days of 1% gain each day, a stock closes down 35%. Your filter will count this as meeting the specified criteria, where mine will not.

You will have to offset a few days to get results, 1 week gives 2 results.
Or Kevins

count(close below close 1 day ago, 10) is above 9
and close 10 days ago above close 11 days ago
