Can I limit the number of stocks in a screen?
For example, the following filter is from the User Guide on how to sort a column.
How do I just show the top 10 stocks?

Fetcher[Show stocks where the MA(10) crossed above the MA(50)
and add column RSI(14)
and sort column 5 ascending
]

Settings -> Results ->

there you can at least limit the numbers of stocks shown on each page of the results list to 5, 10 ... up to 100. That way you only need to look at the first page if you have them sorted as you desire.

Thank you SF Gurus!
I came up with a crude way of doing what I wanted:

Fetcher[Show stocks where the MA(10) crossed above the MA(50)
and add column RSI(14)
and sort column 5 ascending
Show RSI(14) below 49
]



One can look at a list and select a value as a cutoff point.
My reason for restricting such a list is to make comparisons on the performance of different lists.
It's meaningful with the top 10 stocks -- not with hundreds.

Thanks again!
