Does anyone have any ideas for a filter that would show "flat" trading stocks, ones with little price change over a given period, that one could then adjust for price, volume and exchange??

try using a bollinger width(20) between 0 and 0.1 for the last XX days. you can adjust the second parameter of the width to get better results.

Try ma differentials:

set {MAdiff, MA(X) %k-MA(X)} %d} MAdiff is above/below X
and add column EMAdiff

Ex:

set {MAdiff, MA(5) %k-MA(50)} %d} MAdiff is below .05
and add column EMAdiff

This particular formula doesn't give you what you want but play with the differential (measuring the distance between lines) using slope of the close in different time frames or macd or BB or whatever. Just play with it a little.

Errr that would be MAdiff (not EMAdiff) in formula example.
