Using <market is not OTCBB> still will bring up some OTCs in the output.

Mhashe,

Always there is a way.

Let's suppose one has a simple filter, like...
Fetcher[Show stocks where close is between 0.1 and 250]


Then (to make it real simple,) one *could* write three, nearly identical filters as follows:
Fetcher[Show stocks where close is between 0.1 and 250
and market is NASDAQ
]


Fetcher[Show stocks where close is between 0.1 and 250
and market is AMEX
]


Fetcher[Show stocks where close is between 0.1 and 250
and market is NYSE
]


This is one way one can eliminate all OTC BB stocks.

I hope this helps.

Rob

P.S.: As always, there is a better way.

Let's suppose one has a simple filter, like...
Fetcher[Show stocks where close is between 0.1 and 250]


Then (to make it a little more complex,) one *could* write one, more somewhat sophisticated filter as follows:
Fetcher[Show stocks where close is between 0.1 and 250
and set{NY,count(market is NYSE,1)}
and add column NY
and set{AX,count(market is AMEX,1)}
and add column AX
and set{NAS,count(market is NASDAQ,1)}
and add column NAS
]


This is just another easy-to-use tool one can use to (visually) eliminate all stocks that trade elsewhere. Additionally, this is one filter, not three separate ones.

I hope this helps.

P.P.S.: As always, there is a better way.

Using the same, simple filter...
Fetcher[Show stocks where close is between 0.1 and 250]


one *can* write an even more sophisticated one that AUTOMATICALLY keeps all NYSE, AMEX, and NASDAQ stocks, and eliminates all other stocks...
Fetcher[set{NY,count(market is NYSE,1)}
and set{AX,count(market is AMEX,1)}
and set{NAS,count(market is NASDAQ,1)}
and set{Listed,NY+AX}
and set{Sum,Listed+NAS}
and Sum is above 0.99
and add column NY
and add column AX
and add column NAS
and show stocks where close is between 0.1 and 250
]


This is just ANOTHER easy-to-use tool one can use to AUTOMATICALLY eliminate all stocks that trade elsewhere. No addtional (visual) screening is needed. Also, this is one filter, not three separate ones.

I hope this helps.

lol, I like your attitude. Yes there *is* always another way. Sometimes it takes someone smarter to lead. Much thanks for your efforts. They were helpful.

These scans still bring up OTCs. I'm thinking it's a root problem with the data feed source not parsing out the markets correctly.

Mhashe,

If your scans still bring up OTC stocks, I suggest you A) name your stocks in question, be very specific, B) name the filter you're using, be very specific, and then C) contact SF's support, either by posting in the forum, or by e-mail.

To give you an example of what you could do, I suggest you read my post of 8/28/04, right in this forum, under "Comments, Bugs, and Requests". I posted at 12:44 p.m., and Tom B. really monitored the forum, read my post, and listened, too. Most importantly, he made the modification to SF's code in what felt like less than 5 minutes. GREAT JOB, TOM!

I hope this helps.

Rob
