I would appreciate some assistance with the following filter.
It is designed to return a result from "score" of 0 to 100 based on how close the close of the days is to the high of the day.
Close = High = 100
Close = Low = 0

Several strange things are occurring. If I remove all limiting requirements (show stocks were close > close 1 day ago
and score > 50 ) it only returns about 100 stocks instead of providing closing score for all equities.

There must be some wrong in my logic or syntax?

Greatly appreciate some help.

Thanks Michael

set {score1, High - Low}
set {score2, score1 / 100}
set {score3, Close - Low}
set {score4, score3 / score2}
set {score, score4 - score2}

add column score1
add column score2
add column score3
add column score4
add column score

show stocks were close > close 1 day ago
and score > 50

I get 10031 returned upon removing the restrictions. I think this is what you may be looking for:

Fetcher[show stocks were close > close 1 day ago
set{dayrange,high - low}
set{closeposition, close - low}
set{closeratio, closeposition / dayrange}
closeratio above 0.5
add column closeratio
sort column 5 descending
market is NASDAQ 100

Isn't this just using the day position indicator?


Close is above Day Position(0.5,1)
volume is above 500000
close above 2
add column day position(0.5,1)
set{percentage1, close / day position(0.5,1)}
set{percentage, percentage1*100}
add column percentage
sort on column 6 descending

Here I am using different filter settings, but the concept is still the same.
