I want to be able to program like TheRumpledOne. I am willing to learn (my only programming experience was 30 years ago in Basic language), but I need to know where/how to write scripts that are Stockfetcher compatible.

The SF manuals I have read cover all the filters, but I don't see the other stuff TheRumpledOne excels in. Where do I find it? I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way. Where can WE find the ABCs of SF scripting?

The RumpledOne,

Thank YOU for your quality help here, but where is the answer to the question, "How does one find out about scripting (coding) that is SF compatible?
Answers, answers. I don't have a magic wand, but wish I did. And so do many others. We don't have degrees in computer science, as you probably do. We're (or at least many of us) are just plain folk who enjoy using Stockfetcher to help us make money in the stock market. We just need to know where to find out about SF-compatible scripting. That's all. And when we do find out, we'll be able to offer more to the Forums. Isn't that what it's all about here ... helping each other.

to glgene: I'm not SF scripting guru, but I guess the most of SF scripting power based on "set" function... I you learned Basic language then you should easy understand basic things in SF scripting. Below example which shows BIG companies, var1=average volume(90), var2=price, var3=var1 multiply var2...
you can use "set" function for any variable which is used in SF, and do any mathematical operation with them...
example:
set{var1,average volume(90)}
set{var2,price}
set{var3,var1*var2}
var3 is above 100000000

Alex,

Thanks for your sample coding. Ahhh! I've got SET (I guess I'm a slow learner). Now I can begin to make some sense out of TheRumpledOne's scripting. When I get a complete filter built, I'll post it here.

Need help with var3 below (3rd line)

set{var1,rsi(14)}
set{var2,ultimate oscillator(7,14,28)}
set{var3,(var1+var2)/2}
var3 crossed below 50

What I'm after are stocks whose "combined" RSI(14) number and Ultimate Oscillator(7,14,28) number dip below 50 (for a sell). Var3 is supposed to be the summation of the two indicators divided by 2. Thus, if RSI(14) is 55 and Ultimate Oscillator(7,14,28) is 47, the average is 51 (102/2), and thus it would not trigger a sale (still above 50).

set{var1,rsi(14)}
set{var2,ultimate oscillator(7,14,28)}
set{var3,(var1+var2)/2}
var3 crossed below 50

GlGene...

You can only have TWO OPERANDS and ONE OPERATOR in a set statement... set{var3,(var1+var2)/2} has 3 OPERANDS AND TWO OPERATORS.

Fetcher[

set{XXX, rsi(14) +ultimate oscillator(7,14,28)}
set{var3,XXX / 2}
var3 crossed below 50
add column var3
sort column 5 descending
]



WORD OF CAUTION...

DO NOT WASTE SET STATEMENTS OR YOU MAY RUN OUT...

LIKE I DO...LOL

MAY ALL YOUR FILLS BE COMPLETE.

GLGENE... I popped my boolean logic thread to the top.

You can learn SF coding by reading that thread.

To TheRumpledOne,

Thanks for the lesson; if you would have not told me, I never would have known. I'm trying to learn the SF scripting rules (and I will read your other posting).

One question, though: Why the xxx in your reply? Why not var1? I tried it and it works the same. Please advise me of why you chose xxx.

Glgene,

Rump is using the XXX just as an example. Instead of XXX you can put anything.
