These two filters return the same stocks, but should they? How can the value be both above and below 50 on the same day?

These are just learning filters for me, so the validity or usefulness of the scan is not important. (of course that could be the problem)

Thanks
Bill


1. slow stochastic fast (15) %K is above 50 within the last 1 days and volume between 25000000 and 35000000 and price between 1 and 25


2. slow stochastic fast (15) %K is below 50 within the last 1 days and volume between 25000000 and 35000000 and price between 1 and 25

Edit. Only 30 min later it gets 0 results. Changed price but still get the same stocks with both.

.... just a minor syntax error..... try this:

Fetcher[Show stocks where Slow Stochastic(15) Fast %K is greater then 50 within the last 1 day
and Volume is between 25000000 and 35000000
and price is between 1 and 25
]




and

Fetcher[Show stocks where Slow Stochastic(15) Fast %K is less then 50 within the last 1 day
and Volume is between 25000000 and 35000000
and price is between 1 and 25
]



FYI ... to make your examples "clickable".... type f e t c h e r (without the spaces) and embed your code between the "[" and "]" (without the quotes of course)

Thanks Cacher


greater/less than, not above/below. Would have spent many hours before finding that. Think I better finish reading the guide first. :-)

Thanks for the tip on making the statement clickable.

Thanks again

Bill

the syntax error was where the single word "fast" was located ......

slow stochastic fast (15) %K .... should have been
slow stochastic (15) fast %K


... sorry I should have been more detailed in my description..... any ways .... good luck !
