If I execute the following command line by itself it seems to only produce stocks below 2 dollars a share. If I add any kind of other command line, such as a average volume command or a price range command then it comes back with no matches at all.

The stocks it matches above a dollar a share are fascinating, because they have been hammered into the dirt, but some of them recently have had a volume/price spike. You need to look at their chart at a 1 year interval. Is it me or my computer, or does anybody else get strange results with this command?.

That slope is very extreme and the only stocks that match are penny stocks due to the extreme slope. Try a little less slope.

Do you mean "200 day slope of close < -1", which is MUCH different than "slope of close < -1 for the last 200 days". The first takes the slope over 200 days, where the second checks the slope on EACH of the past 200 days.

Yea, I kind of figured the reason for the results was how extreme the equation was. Pretty wild that there actually stocks that fit the criteria. I saw one match that had went from about 55 dollars a share back in March to a dollar a share at present. Now thats going belly up!. I`ll have to change the value to +1 and see if any stocks climbed at that rate.

But the main thing I was pointing out was that if you add any other type of command line, all matches seem to disapear, even just a days offset command, or a command to set a price window. I was just wondering if it did that when somebody else tried to add something to it..

I meant for the slope to be under -1 for the 200 day period. I was looking for stocks that have been in a long term price decline, then watch them for a possible reversal upon some positive news. I just happen to plug in -1 as a lark, to see if there were actually results.

I added:
"and add column close 30 days ago"

It doesn't work.
Any idea why?

Nevermind ....
The reverse works ...
"where 200 day slope of close is < -1 "
and add column close 30 days ago

If I edit the wording differently, then I can add other lines. But, the way I originally had it worded, you could not add any other type of command without all matches disappearing. I don`t know why. I just thought it was interesting to note.

Interesting. I always thought of the slope of close as ie: .07 means 7 percent and .2 means 20% etc.. . Didnt think SF would return < 1 but I saw one that was 1.22. Thought only stocks I bought could decline 122%
