TRO, this is a very long thread with tons of filters. I am curious about your "MTC Checker" concept to identify trading possibilities besides AAPL. It seems that you define your triggers as fractions of a dollar, regardless of share price. Did that change as the filter evolved? For instance, this is one example from fairly early in the thread which identifies 3 stocks with a fair spread on underlying stock price (TSLA, GOOGL, TQQQ which range from ~ $100 to $550):

Fetcher[
/* TRO MTC CHECKER */

set{ hiop, high - open }
set{ up10, count( hiop > 0.09, 100 ) }
set{ up50, count( hiop > 0.49, 100 ) }
set{ pct1, up50 / up10 }
set{winpct, 100 * pct1 }

add column up10
add column up50
add column winpct


up50 above 79

average volume(90) above 1000000

market is nasdaq

sort column 7 descending

That's right. The buy zone does not change for stocks regardless of their share price.

TRO, I am trying to modify your "MTC Checker" as shown in jimmyjazz 4/5/15 post. I am trying to compare buying at the Open versus buying at Open plus 10 cents. I cannot get

set {hiop1, high - (open * 1.001)} to work. Any ideas? I would greatly appreciate your help. Ron(struggling newbie). Thanks and have a great weekend.

You can only do ONE mathematical calculation in a SET{} statement. You have two in this one.

Kevin, Thank you for your help and quick reply. I added the first two set statements listed below with only one mathematical calculation in each set, but I am still getting "syntax errors". Any ideas?

/* TRO MTC CHECKER */

set{open1, (open*1.001) }
set{ hiop, high - open1 }
set{ up10, count( hiop > 0.09, 100 ) }
set{ up50, count( hiop > 0.49, 100 ) }
set{ pct1, up50 / up10 }
set{winpct, 100 * pct1 }

add column up10
add column up50
add column winpct


up50 above 79

I do not know why but I added another qualifier at the top, and it works.
market is not OTCBB

This should work:


/* TRO MTC CHECKER */

set{open1, open * 1.001 }
set{ hiop, high - open1 }
set{ up10, count( hiop > 0.09, 100 ) }
set{ up50, count( hiop > 0.49, 100 ) }
set{ pct1, up50 / up10 }
set{winpct, 100 * pct1 }

add column up10
add column up50
add column winpct


up50 above 79
