i am trying to find a filter that will show me the actual % loss of a stock in the past 1 year

price > 5
volume > 250000
Close dropped more than 60 Percent over the last 365 days

i have tried the filter above but it only gives me a defined percentage like 60% or 80 %

i am trying to make one that i can sort the actual percentages loss of all stocks in a column.

Many Thanks
Happy Holidays

Try this for a start

set {drop, close / close 250 days ago} and add column drop and close > 5 and volume > 250,000 and sort column 5 ascending and drop > .01

Their are about 250 trading days in 1 year.
I had to make the drop > .01 or you get several companies that have not been around for 1 year.

See Ya

set {drop, var1 - close }
set{var2,drop / close}
set{dropper,var2 * 100}

add column drop
add column dropper

close > 5
volume > 250,000
sort column 6 descending
