I would like to use a similar search, but adding a feature which requires this to occur a certain amount of times in X months..

For example: "show stocks that made at least 15% in a 10 day span, at least 5 times in last 8 months."

Is this possible?

I appreciate the feedback but have two concerns/questions:

1) is the maximum amount of historical days 100 allowed by SF? can this be changed somehow to reflect 52 weeks or some longer interval, etc?

2) Also, from looking at the charts, the current scan seems to be REQUIRING the % gain in the MOST RECENT 10 days, which doesnt have to be the case.

I ask this b/c I am cross referencing lists with another piece of software (that I dont want to have to use) and the lists are ENTIRELY different..

1) The 10% gain simply must occur within a 10 day period. (if so, then continue on to...)

2) This must have occured at any given point in the last 8 months, at least 5 separate times..

I am sorry to be a pain, I am trying to learn this as we speak, just wanted to clairfy..

I am confused b/c the lists I am comparing should be near identical. (If anything the other lists uses other criteria to narrow it down even further, so the SF list shuld have those candidates and even more..)

THanks again.
