Marc,

I believe TxTrapper is right - you need to replace "within the past 0 days" with "0 days ago" after BOTH Fast Line *AND* Slow Line MACD clauses.

I gotto run now. I'll post a corrected filter tomorrow...

Marc,

Here's the corrected version (as promised :->):

Fetcher[set{da,days(MACD fast line(12,26) 3 days ago crossed above MACD slow line(12,26) 3 days ago,60)} MACD fast line(12,26) crossed above MACD slow line(12,26) within the past 0 days and da is greater than 0 and price between 5 and 50 and volume 30 day low is greater than 100000 add column da draw MACD(12,26)]



The only change I made was to add "3 days ago" to the MACD fast line clause in the days() function. My original version was comparing the slow line "3 days ago" to the fast line "today". This version compares them on the same date. (One "side effect", though, is the value of "da" is three days less than the actual number of days prior to today that the cross too place. No real big deal, just something to mention...)

From what I can tell - and read in the online help - "crossed above ... within the past __ days" is valid syntax for what we're trying to do, so I left that part of the filter alone.

Now, just to get those prices!

HTH,

C
