Intraday gap reversal.

I've been playing with some of the filters/screens here. I'm having trouble though coming up with something that detects a gap up/down but then intraday retraces past the opening price. The screener here is delayed 15 minutes which I'm well aware of.

There is a great screener for stocks that gapped and then have started to run but nothing for a reversal.

A gap is when a stock changes price between yesterday's close and today's open. A gap reversal is when a stock moves in one direction between yesterday's close and today's open, then moves in the other direction after today's open. A gap reversal alert occurs when a stock price crosses yesterday's closing price for the first time since today's open.

You didn't specifiy how big the gap must be, but here's one you might find useful. Feel free to change the price and volume as well as add criteria of your own.

Fetcher[
set{diff, sign(gap) + sign(OPCL%)}
diff equals 0
set{diff2, abs(gap) - abs(OPCL%)}
sign(diff2) equals -1

add column gap
add column opcl

price above 10
and avgvol(17) above 300000
