Hello....I'm a newbie. My filter below is not returning the results I'm looking for. I want to filter out the list of stocks with a price over $3. Average volume over 500,000. And the last 4 days down on the closing price. The filter below is not working for me. What did I do wrong?

price closed down 4 days in a row
Volume (MA90) above 500,000
price above 3

Price does not mean anything in SF code - use close instead.

Fetcher[

count(close below close 1 day ago,4) = 4
average volume(90) above 500,000
close above 3
]

Thanks...but that didn't work either. At the top of the return list is BAC. That hasn't closed down 4 days in a row.

I'm in GA too

Hi

Fetcher[
close has been decreasing over the last 4 days
average volume (90) > 500000
close > 3
]




Try this

See ya

A bit puzzled as to why Kevin's filter does not work.

It does work when stated this way:

Fetcher[
set{a,count(close below close 1 day ago,4)}
a above 3
average volume(90) above 500,000
close above 3
]



and this works too

Fetcher[count(close below close 1 day ago,4) equal 4
average volume(90) above 500,000
close above 3
]

I'm guessing the use of "=" versus "equals" or "above 3". I usually use the last one and it typically works with the count function.
