Hello Everyone,

I brand new to the site and I don't know how to write code

I'm in the process of reading the manual

There are several scans I want to do

I'm hoping someone will write this code for me so I can get an idea of how to do it

1. volume over a million
2. price over $25
3. 20 and 40 simple moving average have been rising for at least 30 days
4. The 20 is above the 40
5. stock is on an overall uptrend
6. stock is trading close to the 20 simple moving average

Thanks in Advance

Welcome

Fetcher[
average volume (30) > 1000000
close > 25
Ma (40) > Ma (40) 30 days ago
ma (20) > Ma (40)
close > ma (40)
set {closeto20, close / ma (20)} add column closeto20
]



This is very close to what you have said in each line.

The closeto20 is a percentage of the close to the ma (20).
You may want to say closeto20 < 1.01 and closeto20 > .99
That would get you within 1% of the ma (20)

Good luck
See ya
David

Thank you so much,

When you write code

The (30) right after volume, what does that mean?

average volume (30) > 1000000
