I am new to SF and have a simple filter.
set{var1, close - open}
set{var2, open - low}
set{var3, var2 / var1}
set{var4, high - close}
close is above open
and var3 is above 2
and var4 is below var1
and price is between 3 and 11
and low below lower bollinger band
and average volume(30) is above 100000
and draw 45 day slope of the close
and draw ATR(5)
and draw slow stochastic(15,2)%K and %D

why didn't this filter find IIG on March 16. The Open was 3.42, High was 3.56, Low was 3.10 and Close was 3.45

Just a guess, but from eyeballing it, it doesn't appear to meet your Av.Volume(30) >100k criteria.

Thank you Furious. Sometimes the simpliest things need a new eye. It worked when I lowered the volume requirement. .

If var1 = 0 then you are dividing by 0

once a programmer, always a programmer. It was the very first thing that came to my mind too. :-)
