Can someone tell me how to create a filter that would bring up stocks coiling, or their price range contracting over more than a few days. thanks

Triangle Patterns

DescriptionStockFetcher now has the ability to detect triangle patterns. We currently support:

  • ascending triangles
  • descending triangles
  • symmetric triangles

    Below are some examples demonstrating how to take advantage of this new feature using the StockFetcher text-based filtering:

    Fetcher[show stocks where pattern is ascending triangle]

    Fetcher[show stocks where pattern is descending triangle(45)]

    Fetcher[show stocks where pattern is symmetric triangle(55,10)]


    In addition to simply detecting the patterns, StockFetcher also allows you to specify where the price is relation to the upper or lower triangle line. For example:

    Fetcher[show stocks where the close is above the upper ascending triangle(55)]

    Fetcher[show stocks where the close is below the lower descending triangle(55)]

    In the above examples, you will notice that there is a period specified in parens. This is the number of days used to create the triangle.

    A second parameter may be used to specify a window of time from the most recent day backwards. It is during this window that the triangle pattern could possibly have been broken. The second parameter can be used to find cases where there has been a possible breakout from the triangle pattern. By default, this second value is 6 days.

    Below is a sample chart demonstrating the ascending triangle pattern:
