Come on guys, I have posted this 3 times and sent an email to Support days ago asking for help. Just need a simple response please?

I was wondering if it is possible to backtest a filter and using the Entry section on the Advanced Tab to include only stocks that open below the close from one day ago. I have tried many forms of this verbiage but it does not seem to work. Any insights would be very helpful as I would like to get some accurate results on this!

Thank you!

Hey Drew:
I'm just passn' thru ... I'm not a "filter writer", as I've been using the same filters for EIGHT years.
LOL!
Anywho ... your post said:
"include only stocks that open below the close from one day ago"

Is this what you want?:

Fetcher[Average Volume(30) > 1000000
close > 20
open below close one day ago
add column open
add column close one day ago
]

also, Drew ...
the next time you need "filter" help, you might try the "Fillter Exchange" forum, as many members here don't even look at the "discussion" section.

Hi Karen,

Appreciate your efforts but needed the help on backtesting a filter. It is a short filter and I only wanted to count those stocks that opened lower the next day. Apparently this cannot be done but it sure seems like it would be easy for SF to program? It is a bit frustrating though that after 4 posts and an email to Support they could not respond!
