Hello,
I am trying to build a filter that will show me stocks where the bollinger bands have contracted to less than 6% of the 20 day moving average (simple) Can somebody help

There must be an easier way to do it, but this might work:


Fetcher[

set{u_limit,MA(20)*1.061}
set{l_limit,MA(20)*0.939}

show stocks where the upper Bollinger Bands(20,2) are below u_limit
and where the lower Bollinger Bands(20,2) are above l_limit
]

Some further thinking on this:

Fetcher[

set{u_limit,MA(20)*1.061}
set{l_limit,MA(20)*0.939}

show stocks where the upper Bollinger Bands(20,2) are below u_limit
and where the lower Bollinger Bands(20,2) are above l_limit
and close is below the lower Bollinger Bands(20,2)
]



Possible pullback filter that combines BB contraction with testing the support off the lower BB.

Fetcher[/*Muddys Bollie Scan*/

Show stocks where bollinger width(40) is at a 6 month low and close is between 5 and 100
and Volume Rate of Change(3) is above 800

Draw FI(2)

ADD COLUMN SEPARATOR
add column PE
add column ADX(14)
and add column separator
and add column exchange
and add column sector
and add column industry
and add column separator
