VMA(5) is less than High

High is greater than VMA(5)

I get 2 drastically different results when I use those 2 phrases. The first result, which returns stocks correctly, returns 62 hits. Ths second returns 2 hits and they are not accurate. I am looking for stocks where the intraday high was above VMA(5) at some point.

I tried this alone, and both values were the same. But when I put it in a saved filter and tested it, the results were different. I'll double check it again and post the actual results if they are different again.

Ran across this again, so grabbed some specifics:

apply to symlist(AA)
MA(20) is above MA(50)
MA(20) is above MA(5)

Returns 0 results

apply to symlist(AA)
MA(20) is above MA(50)
MA(5) is below MA(20)

Returns 1 result (AA)

Seems to me these are the same. I am beginning to lose faith in the filtering / screens that SF is generating. Am I doing something wrong? This is 3 lines of code that should spit out the same results.

MA(5) is between MA(20) and MA(50) seems to work though...
