Hello -

I was trying to create a seemingly basic scan that looks for stocks in which price is moving above the 200-day moving average for the first time in X days, but I don't think the one that I have created is working and I'm not sure what needs to be changed.

Here is the syntax I was using:

Price crossed above ma(200) 1 day ago and had been below ma(200) for the last 50 days
and average volume(30) is greater than 200000
and close is above 2
and atr(30) is greater than 0.30

Any ideas on what needs to be changed?

Thank you very much for your time.

I entered what you had and it works for me.

Hmm... my results from yesterday's action have 16 results using that criteria.

For the sake of simplicity I will just address the first result, which was ULTI.

The scan criteria (or at least what I am trying to find) doesn't match with ULTI's price chart at all. ULTI has basically been above its 200-day since late March and is simply retesting now.

Also, another thing that I noticed (and don't understand) is when I changed the criteria from ma(200) to ema(200) no results showed up, even after changing the X portion (# of days) multiple times.
