TRO, yes I am. Thanks to you and The Next NTRI filter.
Trading account peaked to 73.89% gain in 10 weeks. We're at 48.75% in 15 weeks now. Minor pull-back before zooming upwards.

Of course what I use is much teaked from the original, but the concept is the same! The key, plan the trade, trade the plan. Filter seaching has been in the past for a long while now! You've talked about statistics, and that IS the plan.

Keep up the great work! Thanks.

In order of importance I would really like:

Custom LRI and custom Linear Regression Channels (so you can put an LRI on something like rsi for instance).

Custom MACD, i know it is possible to code this with a lot of set commands (i have before) but it would be nice to have this predefined.

Historical fundamental data. Possibly historical analyst consensus - upgrade / downgrade info. Stock split info.

For "weekly" to play nice in things like cma.

P&F charting / scanning mode.

Drawdown statistics to show in date offset scans.

Ability to compare a stock's performance to it's entire sector's performance, ability to also view a stockfetcher sector's performance on a 2 year daily chart.

I would like to be able to create custom file folders so I can put my filters in their appropriate categories.

Dave

There are in fact two things that I badly need this Christmas season. They're both a variation on the theme of days() function.

1) I need to calculate how many days a stock took to, say, run up 5% or more. Currently, the days() only tells us how many days ago the criteria was met but it doesn't tell us just how long it took to meet those criteria.

2) I need to use the value derived from the days() as a variable nested in another expression. Take "set{x, days(price reached a new 52 week high,10)}" for example. Suppose it spits out 2 as its value. Now I would like to find out whether there was a volume spike to support the new 52 week high by writing "count(volume x days ago is more than 200% above avgvol(50),1)" Unfortunately, this doesn't go down very well under the current system.

These two, in my otherwise myopic opinion, would literally change the way we write filters. That is, if they ever become a reality.

I would like a substring type function called CONTAINS

set{ x, contains( stockname, "solar", 1) }

Allows the user to scan stock names for keywords.

I know this is not the same, but quasi-solar:

=======================================

That WOULD be nice.
Such a filter might've yielded the little stock that could ....
... Yingli Solar ... up 300% since June.
But maybe not, since the more common name is Yingli Green Energy.
