I've been lurking here for a couple of weeks and have enjoyed the discussions very much. There seems to be some very good traders here as well as coders. I'm a little challenged in the coding area so if someone could translate this telechart code to SF I would certainly appreciate it. I would also like to add minimum price of $1 and minimum volume of 200000 shares per day. Thanks and good trades.

(C - C20) / (ABS(C - C1) + ABS(C1 - C2) + ABS(C2 - C3) + ABS(C3 - C4) + ABS(C4 - C5) + ABS(C5 - C6) + ABS(C6 - C7) + ABS(C7 - C8) + ABS(C8 - C9) + ABS(C9 - C10) + ABS(C10 - C11) + ABS(C11 - C12) + ABS(C12 - C13) + ABS(C13 - C14) + ABS(C14 - C15) + ABS(C15 - C16) + ABS(C16 - C17) + ABS(C17 - C18) + ABS(C18 - C19) + ABS(C19 - C20))

have you got some way of testing this - im not sure if its working correctly

set{CmC20, close minus close 20 days ago}

set{CmC1, close minus close 1 day ago}

set{absCmC1, abs(CmC1)}

set{absSum, sum(absCmC1,19)}

set{EffR, CmC20 divided by absSum}

close > 1
volume 6 week low > 200000

draw EffR

Thanks guys
From what I can tell these both seem to work.

macer...Can you modify your code so you can sort on the ER? That would be great.

just add "add column EffR" to the filter. This adds the ER column, which can be clicked on to sort high to low.

Thanks Kevin
This pulls up some very nice trending stocks. Since these are very "efficient" stocks with little daily correction, I think maybe you can go to a intraday chart and find a low risk opportunity and then manage it into a longer term hold and achieve an outstanding risk/reward ratio. Just a thought. I would be interested to hear if anyone here trades this way? Thanks again.
