I'm looking for someone who can make a filter , finding stocks which has been in a very tight range for a very long time , and then suddendly starts to move to upside.

If we take some examples , take a look at weekly chart on :

1. EGT


If you look at both charts on weekly chart , both stocks moved sideways for 2-3 YEARS , but suddendly moved higher.

I want a filter where it for example would catch EGT on the break of 0.3-0.4 before it broke out

And the same with PATK when it broke aorund 2-3$.

Thanks a lot if you know what kind of filter to search for.

This is one way to make it work.
I just looked for an explosion in ATR
It found your stocks.

set {a, atr (150) / close} add column A
set {b, atr (3) / close} add column B
set {jump, b / a} add column jump and sort column 7 descending
close > .1
average volume (30) > 99000

Seem to find a lot of stocks that takeoff and then just die.

Good Luck
See ya
