Here is a simple filter: Looking for stocks to close above 80% of their price range.

Show stocks where Close is above Day Position(0.80,0)
and price is between 5 and 1000
and average volume(30) is above 1000000
is optionable

For today i.e. 8/31, there were 128 hits. For 8/30, there were 59 hits.

To obtain 8/30 hits, I used offset 1.

I'm trying to look at a year's worth of data, so is there a way someone can help me get the count for past data, without me going and changing the offset value each time? Even if I could get say a month's worth of readings at a time, I'm not opposed to repeating it 12 times to get a years worth of values. I'm not interested in the individual stocks in the list.

Thanks in advance.

My guess is no.

Perhaps if we understood what you are trying to accomplish there is a work around ??

Hmmm...I thought it was clear.

I'm looking to gather a year's worth of data for a filter. i.e.

9/1 How many stocks closed in their 80% range
8/31 How many stocks close in their 80% range
8/30 How many stocks closed in their 80% range
and so forth till 1/4/10

So I'm looking for the total number of stocks (count) returned each day. I could careless which individual stocks met the criteria on each day. Sounds like a rather simple task to accomplish. Hope that clarifies the situation.

Thanks

I do not believe this can be done currently - you are not the first person to ask this question, and so far no one from SF has indicated it can be done.

I certanly can't figure out how to do it ...

Thanks Kevin. Yes, that is a much needed feature.
