I'd like to create a filter where a stock has been in a channel for say 5,30,100 days etc. And then the FIRST day it makes a 30 day high I want SF to tell me. If I do some thing like, show stocks where price reached a new 30 day high, that will give results for the first day it breaks out. But also, if it continues to go up, it will list 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc. days as well (because techinically those would also be 30 day highs as well). How do I tell SF that I only want it to search for stocks that show only the first day, but not all the subsequent days?

any help is appreciated
oh and any help w/ that type of filter including the baseing in a nice flat channel before the breakout would be appreciated as well :)

Fetcher[count(close reached a new 30 day high,60) > 0 and count(close reached a new 30 day high,60) < 2 and close reached a new 30 day high]

If you substitute high for close in rtucker's scan it will show and select on the high not the close.Hope this helps
