Hello all,

I use a scan that looks for strong breakouts on strong volume x days ago. I offset it and basically start with day 10 and manually go through day 80 by changing the offset within the scan. My goal in doing this is to find low-risk opportunities within healthy high-level consolidations *following* a big move on big relative volume.

Here is the scan that I use..


close more than 5% above close 1 day ago
volume more than 100% above average volume(30) 1 day ago

offset 10

and average volume(30) is greater than 200000
and price is greater than 1
and rsi(5) is less than 80

What I am noticing, however, is that the scan is completely ignoring the final three lines below the offset function, so I'm getting a lot of stuff that I wish I wasn't. It takes me quite a while to go from day 10 to day 80, so I'm hoping that there is a way that I can make the scan recognize the other requirements.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but I'm hoping that someone out there can help.

Thank you very much,

- J

Maybe something like this?

close more than 5% above close 1 day ago

and average volume(30) is greater than 200000
and price is greater than 1
and rsi(5) is less than 80

set{avgvol30_1dayago,average volume(30) 1 day ago }
add column avgvol30_1dayago
add column rsi(5)

offset 10
