Needing some help from the pros here. I have been trying to formulate a filter that looks for stocks with gradual but steady increases with little volatility within the days price movement. Examples that meet this criteria:


These are just a few examples but the trend is fairly gradual and consistent. Granted, there are times they pullback but if you look at KRC as an example, you see a steady, fairly consistent climb with little daily price volatility.

I have tried a few filters with no luck. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I would probably suggest that you pick a time period to start (SF indicators tend to max at 100 days, so let's use that) and look at ROC and R-squared, Example:


close above 5
average volume(100) above 250000
ROC(100,1) between 1 and 10
Rsquared(close,100) above 0.75


Not a lot of selections, but I think they tend to fit the pattern you are looking for. This will select for low beta stocks and ETFs.
