Does anybody know how you can add this onto a filter. Say if you have a filter and it finds a number of stocks, but you do not want it to trigger to pick those stocks until the price of those stocks goes higher than the high for the day that the stock was triggered on. Say you have Stock A and it fits everything in the filter, but you do not want to enter into the stock until the price is higher than the day it was triggered. It may take a day or two before it reaches that price. I am trying to word this right, it may seem a little confusing. But if anybody knows of a way to do that I would greatly appreciate it.

I dont really want to post my filter, but it incorporates Jeff Cooper's 5 day Momentum method plus stock ratings from Investor Business Daily. By using IBD's top rated stocks I can filter out the strongest gainers. So, when you backtest, you have to only look at a month or so at a time, while the stocks are at their higgest ratings. Hope this helps. I have done pretty well using this method, but when the market takes a big hit so does your Portfolio, plus you have to use strick stops so you dont lose to much. I put mine usually at 8%.

With regards to Kram's original request, use the day() function.
