Hello,

I just joined up the other day and have a question that I can't find an answer to. My strategy is the basic long position, buy low and sell on the way up, prior to a peak. To accomplish this, I have found that the best "buy" screen is:

Fetcher[
Show stocks where Fast Stochastic(15,5) Fast %K crossed above 20
and Fast Stochastic(15,5) Fast %K 1 day ago was below 20 for the last 5 days
and close is between 2 and 100
and average volume(30) is above 50000
]



And the best "sell" screen is:

Fetcher[
MACD(12,26) is below the MACD(9)
and MACD Histogram has been increasing for 1 day
and RSI(14) has been decreasing for 1 day
]



Here's my scenario. I have "buy" filter set up to e-mail me daily "buy" alerts; that's working fine. So, say I get in 10 stocks out of the list. I wanted to be able to run a "sell" screen on only those 10 stocks I'm in, that will e-mail me daily when one of the 10 triggers the "sell" screen.

I see how to set up alerts for ALL stocks, but can't seem to figure out how to set up alerts where a specific screen is applied only to the list of symbols that I want it to look at, so it can email me daily when any of the 10 positions I'm in have triggered it.

Thank you very much in advance, for any help. And feel free to correct me if you see that I could be using better "buy" and "sell" screens to accomplish my goal.

You would have to create a watchlist with the ten stocks from your original buy filter, and then apply that watchlist to your sell filter...
