I'm a newbie, and I've read the userguide, and I guess I'm too thick headed.

All I want to do is run an algorithm on a single stock and display a graph showing me where it would buy.

Like, "buy AAPL when RSI (4) is more than 0" Then show me the graph.

How doe you tie the graph into the filter?

Is there an area here that gives simple code examples that culminate with a graph? If I could get one version, I could adapt my filters to them.

Filters do not put BUY signals on the graph.

They are plotted below or behind the price action, and all you need to do is look at when RSI crosses above a certain value you feel is critical.

You can set up your filters to email you when a specific event is triggered. You can also backtest any filter against any stock or set of stocks as well, and it will tell you %wins, and profit or loss.

Thanks guys...especially eman. That code got me over the hurdle. I figured out how to run them for a single stock and view my buy-in signals graphically which is what I really needed. I've found that when I click on "historical", it will put little green arrows showing me past by-in periods...needed to see them so I could refine my algorithm. I'm assuming that it won't do this for a shorter time interval? It'd be nice to be able to extrapolate directly off the graph better (bigger graph). I understand that I can get get my filters to e-mail me, but I'm using my filters as only as a "buy" indicator for a handful of stocks. There is a lot of emphasis on the educational stuff on how to get your filter to search the universe for different stocks, but it seems not a lot of info about screening a single stock and sending a buy signal out via e-mail. I'll figure it out eventually, but at least I'm not frantic to get it working. I'm stoked about this...its powerful when you get the hang of it.

you can use the count function to display historical buy signals also on your graph. feel free to post your filter and i am sure someone would gladly help with it.

Looking at that AAPL chart, you might want to rethink that filter.

Not criticizing the filter, Chet. Well done. Just looking at the buy signals for AAPL (his target stock), I would rethink the strategy.

My sense of irony needs more coffee ... even with the extra hour of sleep!
