I came up with the following filter but it's not working...

set{x,1 year high - close}
set{y,x/ 1 year high}
set{z,y*100}
show stocks where z is less than 15

Can anybody help?

khan0905,

This will get you started.

Fetcher[set{x, 1 year high - close}
set{y, x / 1 year high}
set{z, y * 100}
show stocks where z is less than 15
and add column x
and add column y
and add column z

khan,

If you want to do the same thing without using the "set" syntax you could write the filter this way:

Fetcher[
close is less than 15 percent below the close 52 week high

/*and draw close 52 week high minus 15 percent on plot price*/
and price above 1
]



The problem I have with this particular technique is 15% seems to have a different meaning based on the magnitude of the price.

A solution to the problem might look something like the filter below. It tries to find stocks where the price is within 15% of the top (85%) of the 52 week high/low range. It is calculated similar to Bollinger %B but using the yearly high/low close values as the input.

Fetcher[
set{myHigh, close 52 week high}
set{myLow, close 52 week low}
set{myDelta1, close minus myLow}
set{myDelta2, myHigh minus myLow}
set{percentC, myDelta1 / myDelta2}

percentC above .85

AND draw close 52 week high
AND draw close 52 week low
AND draw percentC
AND price above 1
]



Hope this helps...
