Well, have you tried it ? I can't get it to work. All I get is no matches & the debug
screen.
Here is what I am trying to do:

show stocks where price is above 1
and average volume(90) is above 50000
and DMA(11,-6) is crossing above upper bollinger band(20)


What's wrong ?

Right you are Alan.. I believe the reason is, that the DMAM(11,-6) is a lagging indicator, and what you appear to see on the charts, with the DMA(11,-6) crossing above the upper bollinger band is such, because the price has already began it's ascent.

DMA(11,-6) ain't just a lagging indicator, it's a displaced indicator. Since it's displaced by 6 days, anything that appears within that displaced range is an imaginary number since it never yet happened.
