Thank you!

this is looking for stocks that have bounced off the 50EMA...
the 50EMA increasing for 3 days should help indicate the uptrend...


Fetcher[
low today or 1 day ago less than 2% above EMA(50)
and EMA(50) increasing for the last 3 Days
]



YOu could also add that it should be above the EMA 200

Close is 1% above EMA(200)

Not sure that you can use an "OR" function in SF ...

Can you????

Ok, how about a phrase that I can run for stocks pulling back to 50ema and gap support and then another phrase for stocks pulling back to 50ema and trendline support? Would that possible? Thanks again, I really appreciate your help.

Debug shows no errors with the "today or 1 day ago" line.

Trendline support or gap support are much more dificult to define.

I runn the following filter looking for gaps and then set alerts when price approces filling the GAp

run the opposite for gap downs


Fetcher[
SET{A1, HIGH 1 DAY AGO}
SET{A2, OPEN}
SET{A3, OPEN / A1}
SET{A, COUNT(A3 ABOVE 1.08,1)}
SET{B, COUNT(A3 BELOW 1.3,1)}
SET{X, A + B}
SET{ALERT, A1*1.01}
SHOW STOCKS WHERE X EQUALS 2
SHOW STOCKS WHERE ALERT IS GREATER THAN 5
and close is above 15

add column A1
add column ALERT
sort by column 3 descending

]

No error in debug does not mean that it is being used correctly, or even at all. Often it will ignore elements that are not recognized, and only list errors in syntax that is part of the SF code language.

I do not think that you are actually getting OR to work here. That type of Boolean operator is not available in SF right now.

I recall that TRO wrote an OR operator.

My point exactly - the simple use of OR in a filter will not work.
