I keep looking through the stockfetcher user guide, but may be missing it.
I know that we can analyze stocks based on their intraday high-low range being a certain amount. Therefore, just wondering if we can see if, for example, the most recent intraday high exceeded the prior day's intraday high.

Thank you.

TraderBert:

There are probably lots of ways. Here's three. . .

High is above High one day ago
(this will give you results which include only issues which have made a higher High today)

add column High and add column High 1 day ago
(this will give you two columns on the result of your screen and you inspect them to determine if there's been a higher High or not)

set{hiyest, High 1 day ago} and set{deltahi, High-hiyest} and add column deltahi
(this will give you a single column on the result of your screen which will be the difference between today's High and yesterday's, + if a new High was made and - otherwise)

If you try to write something to accomplish what you want and it doesn't work the SF doesn't lock up or anything. . .it just sits there and waits for you to try something else!

hey, that's great, Jim. Thanks a lot. I had tried to word it but must have done it wrong.
Anyway, I appreciate your help.

Fetcher[
set{HIGHb,days(HIGH is above HIGH 1 day ago,100)}
set{HIGHa,days(HIGH is below HIGH 1 day ago,100)}
set{HxH, HIGHa - HIGHb}

add column HxH
add column high


close above 20
volume above 1000000

sort column 5 descending

]



Column HxH tells you how many consecutive days the high is above(+) or below(-) the previous day's high.

Might as well do the rest...

Fetcher[
set{lowb,days(low is above low 1 day ago,100)}
set{lowa,days(low is below low 1 day ago,100)}
set{LxL, lowa - lowb}
add column LxL
add column Low

close above 20
volume above 1000000

sort column 5 descending
]




Fetcher[
set{openb,days(open is above open 1 day ago,100)}
set{opena,days(open is below open 1 day ago,100)}
set{OxO, opena - openb}

add column OxO
add column Open

close above 20
volume above 1000000

sort column 5 descending
]



MAY ALL YOUR FILLS BE COMPLETE
