Hello,

I want to make a filter that can messure the movement from previus gaps? Is this even posible?

I know I can use somethink like this to look for gaps the last 99 days,
set {GapCount, count(open is above close 1 day ago,99)}

But is there a way I can messure the move after?

Tor

Provided that the stock gapped up (by at least 1%) this morning, the question remains whether it ends the day above the open or not. Whatever the case, the column labeled "gap100" will spit out the number of day that the stock gapped up and closed above the open.

Fetcher[
set{gapper, count(gap above 1,1) * count(opcl above 0,1)}
set{gap100, count(gapper above 0,100)}
add column gap100
]


As you can see, most of them will fail to close up on the day of the gap. Highest occurence stands at 31 and the lowest at, well, 0.

Now, of those stocks that gapped up, how many times did they actually went south and closed the day below previous day's close? Some food for thought.

Fetcher[
set{gapper, count(gap above 1,1) * count(day change below 0,1)}
set{gap100, count(gapper above 0,100)}
add column gap100
]
