Is it not possible to apply a filter to an index, such as OEX?

In hindsight, the way I expressed this question makes no sense -- or, at worst, is a stupid request. What I meant was, is there no way to use an index in a filter, such as, '...and OEX has been increasing over the last 4 days'. I thought this might be useful for limiting myself to investing when certain market conditions are met, rather than setting filters ONLY against measures on the individual stocks. Perhaps a more experienced trader can comment on whether this has utility?

Hi,

You bring up a good suggestion for a filter where stocks may be analyzed against a market index or possibly a sector. Currently, this feature is available with the "Comparative Relative Strength" section on the main page (mid-way down on the right side.) Unfortunately, this feature is fairly limited at the current time and is restricted to US Market data only.

We are currently looking into adding additional comparisons as well as possibly allowing you to create your own index from your Watch List, or other similar list, and use that as a possible index comparison.

Thanks for your reply; I look forward to seeing some additional comparisons added. I think that your plans for personal indexes from a user's Watch List is a great -- and creative -- idea.

this would be great since i could finally build canadian indices for comparison since none are providedby stockfetcher (TSX, VCX)

Tom, any progress on this feature? Thanks

I found these two sites one shows the average weighted alpha
GNBT and NTRI are in the top 10... some of you programers may be interested in weighted moving average

this one shows formulas for Metastock

this one shows barchart top 100

you can easily do comparison wit hindex by comparing with corresponding ETF wich 99% moves the same as index... for example, if you want to compare something with S&P500 you can do:
Fetcher[set{sp_500,ind(SPY,rsi(3))} and add column sp_500]

if you want to compare with Nasdaq you can do:
Fetcher[set{NASD,ind(QQQQ,rsi(3))} and add column NASD]

if you want to compare with canadian index you can compare with canadian ETF EWC
Fetcher[set{canada,ind(EWC,rsi(3))} and add column canada]


You can see list of all available ETF by
Fetcher[stock is ETF]


you can do anything with those variables: sp_500, NASD, canada, for example:
Fetcher[set{sp_500,ind(SPY,rsi(3))} and set{sp_500_2,ind(SPY,rsi(3) one day ago)} and sp_500 above sp_500_2 and rsi(3) below rsi(3) one day ago and price above 20 and volume above 100000 and add column sp_500 and add column rsi(3)]

this filter shows falling stocks when S&P500 is growing
