Thanks for the clarification. I had assumed that "var" stood for variable, and I assumed that SF scripting required variables in Set commands. Just goes to show one shouldn't assume anything! Thanks, again.

Here is my work-in-progress. I went back to the default sort (Vol), and added "add column var3 1 day ago". This enables me to see big volume stocks that had an acceptable var3 1 day ago but sunk to less than 50 today. I look for the big spreads, such as these findings:

*** Today *** 1 day ago
SBL 37.30 ------ 57.73
TXI 40.06 ------ 69.16
DSCO 46.08 --- 67.78

I'll keep adding to the scripting, in an attempt to improve it.

Fetcher [
/* RSI(14) and ULT(7,14,28) <50 */
stock closed above 5
set{XXX, rsi(14) +ultimate oscillator(7,14,28)}
set{var3,XXX / 2}
var3 crossed below 50
add column var3
add column var3 1 day ago
]

One suggestion is to have all of your SET STATEMENTS AT THE TOP and your SELECTION STATEMENTS at/near the bottom:


Fetcher[
/* RSI(14) and ULT(7,14,28) <50 */

set{XXX, rsi(14) +ultimate oscillator(7,14,28)}
set{var3, XXX / 2}

add column var3
add column var3 1 day ago

stock closed above 5
var3 crossed below 50

]



I don't know why, but it seems to work better that way.

MAY ALL YOUR FILLS BE COMPLETE.

What scripting do I need to show in the 1-line outputs the following:

Today 1 Day Ago
var3....var3

Right now it just shows var3 var3

/* RSI(14) and ULT(7,14,28) <50 */

set{XXX, rsi(14) +ultimate oscillator(7,14,28)}
set{var3, XXX / 2}

add column var3 {today}
add column var3 1 day ago {1 day ago}

stock closed above 5
var3 crossed below 50

Notice what I did to the column statements.

The reason I didn't make this filter example clickable is because the column headings mess up the filter for some reason.

MAY ALL YOUR FILLS BE COMPLETE.

GLGENE:

One thing about programming is learning how to use other people's code!

Don't reinvent the wheel if you don't have to.

I use tradestation and I didn't know the language in the beginning but now I am pretty good at parts of it because I have used other people's code and learned from it.

Almost everyday, I code a SLOT MACHINE indicator based on someone else's code.

Learned some neat stuff that way.
