how to code:
the low is less than 5% above the lower Bollinger(20,2) band over the last 4 days and
the low is less than 2% below the lower Bollinger(20,2) band over the last 4 days

There's nothing wrong with ure filter when used separately. You can't have the low trade above AND below the lower BB at the same time, so you can't of course use both lines in the same filter. However, keep in mind that 5% is a rather large number and Bollinger width for some stocks isn't even that wide. In such a case, you'll get matches that are trading closer to the upper BB and you might think there's something wrong with ure filter although, in theory, there's nothing wrong with it. I suggest you lower the number.

Fetcher[
/* Low within X cents of lower bb */

Set{BBtarget, abs(low MINUS lower Bollinger(20,2) band ) }

BBtarget below .11

add column BBtarget
add column upper Bollinger(20,2) band {UpperBB}
add column lower Bollinger(20,2) band {LowerBB}

close above 1
volume above 1000000

Sort column 5 ascending
]



See if this helps.

try this:
the low is below 5% above the lower Bollinger(20,2) band over the last 4 days and
the low is above 2% below the lower Bollinger(20,2) band over the last 4 days
