rtucker -

I would agree with most of what you were saying but, "stops" are not fool proof. I can count on both hands how many times I had to chase my stops because of gap downs etc. in my early trading career. If you trade stocks that have a positive "weekly" outlook, then rarely you will ever need em IMHO. But I will say that stops sure make you feel better at night. And if you are not a fulltime trader, then they are essential! Great topic Tucker.....

BTW, is the "parking Lot" still breathing? I would have thought it was flat lined weeks ago. LOL....

Thank you evryone for your help. Maybe I didnt explain correctly what I was looking for. I am only trying to concentrate on volume at this time. If you look at a chart on HANS(monthly chart, period between 1996-2003). You will see there was very little volume, then boom. I am looking for a filter that only looks for volume that has moved very little. Something easy that I can change the time frame. All help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't understand how you did it ............(so what's new !)
it works

The filter becomes apparent if the price display is changed to weekly

Many thanks and much appreciated

Still not exactaly what I'm looking for. I'm looking for a screen that will find stocks that have very little volume happening. Something that will allow me to look at stocks trading between 5000 and 10000(or different values) shares of stock(volume) between 1 week, 2 week or even up to 5 years(or different values) ago.

Try this,

set{hiclose, close 125 day high}
set{lowclose, close 125 day low}
set{closeratio, hiclose / lowclose}
closeratio < 1.2

set{hivolume, volume 125 day high}
set{lowvolume, volume 125 day low}
hivolume < 100000
lowvolume > 10000

offset is 25

If you do not care about price, then delete the first 4 lines.
