Hi - I'm very new to SF. I did a little searching but didn't find anything along these lines. I'm afraid my attempt at creating it is still a little off.

I'd like to generate a scan of stocks within some percent number of the 200MA. What's the syntax for something like this?

Thank you.

Close is less than 1% below the MA(200)
//
And Close is more than 60% above the MA(50)
and average volume(30) is above 1000000

By using PPO, we can have a chart and then have a visual of the relationship of the close to the ema.
i believe stockFetcher only goes to ema(100). To accomplish your request for ema(200), you will need to understand the calculation and put into Stockfetcher

Discussion and calculation for PPO:

As an example, I grabbed this picture where the close is 10% above the ema(100)...
The filter is below the chart.



Fetcher[
draw ppo(1,100) line at .10
draw ppo(1,100) line at 0
draw ppo(1,100) line at -.10
draw ema(100)

offset 9/17/2014
add column ppo(1,100)
add column close
add column ema(100)
symlist(abbv)
