I wanted to filter out stocks where the close was in the top 25% of the range. I used the following but it gave some results that aren't always in the top 25%: close is above Day Position (0.75)

Fetcher[
close is above Day Position(0.75 , 1)
set{diff, close - Day Position(0.75 , 1) }
set{HC, high - close}

ADD COLUMN Day Position(0.75 , 1)
add column diff
add column HC

close above 20
volume above 1000000
]



Looks like it's working...

What stock(s) didn't it work for?

I tried the filter and still got some stocks where the close was nowhere near the top 25%. XLE and TWTC are two examples.

Neither of those stocks appeared on the filter I posted.

You're right! I can't explain why I got those two stocks before. Must have done something wrong. Thanks for the help.
