Is it possible to filter a previous filter? Let's say filter (A) creates my Watch list.. now I would like Filter (B) to signal when certain criteria is met from the Watchlist. Is this possible??

Thanks in advance!

Yes, by using the apply to watchlist phrase and the nicknames you have defined for your watch lists.


For example, if the nickname for one of your lists is LongShots, then a sample filter using stocks from that list would be:

show stocks where MA(10) crossed above the MA(50)and apply to watchlist(LongShots)



To filter using mutiple lists at once, simply separate the nicknames through commas:

show stocks where MA(10) crossed above the MA(50)and apply to watchlist(LongShots,HotPicks)

How would you write the filter for this for example:

RSI has been decreasing for 3 consecutive days, but is now increasing in the last 2 days?

I first created a filter that captures the stocks where the "RSI has been decreasing for last 3 days", but I am unsure how to write the filter so I can do this. I tried creating a watch list for the filter, then created a new filter to be applied to the watch list, but it doesnt work.

Thanks in advance

rsi(2) 4 days ago below rsi(2) 5 days ago
rsi(2) 3 days ago below rsi(2) 4 days ago
rsi(2) 2 days ago below rsi(2) 3 days ago
rsi(2) 1 day ago above rsi(2) 2 days ago
rsi(2) above rsi(2) 1 day ago

Just combine them into one filter, and avoid watchlists entirely.

Don't forget to develop an exit strategy as well, and backtest the combination thoroughly. Otherwise this is just putting good money at risk.
