Hi all, I'm pretty new (as in the last week or so) at this and I'm running into a roadblock. Essentially, what I'm building is a scanner that's looking for unusual volume, that hasn't gapped significantly and the price has been moving sideways. Basically, a breakout filter before the breakout actually occurs. Both 'solutions' I tried are commented out while I bang my head against the keyboard. I toyed with slope of the close but apparently it's smarter than I am and I couldn't make heads or tails of it, hence the commenting off. The other solution I was tinkering in was show stocks where close is less than 5% of last week high. Either I'm screwing up the syntax or I'm doing something wrong because the results aren't displaying stocks that are trending sideways or within the set % of last week's close. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (oh, and if someone could tell me how to make the scan clickable that would be awesome too)

Fetcher[
Market is not otcbb
Market is not ETF
Average Volume(50) is > 100,000
Show stocks where volume is more than 10% above Average Volume(50) last 5 days

/*Something to look at maybe not for this scanner but for future scanners*/
/*Show stocks where 3 day slope of the close is near 0*/

/*Still looking for best solution*/
/*show stocks where close is 5% above close 5 days ago*/

close to open gap is between -1 and 1
close greater than open

To make filters clickable, add two lines.

1. At the very top add Fetcher and an open bracket
2. at the very bottom add ]

Here's a sideways filter with a 30-day high breakout on greater than 1.5 average volume.

Fetcher[
not etf
close > 10
average volume(30) > 250000

60 day slope of close 1 day ago < 0.001
60 day slope of close 1 day ago > -0.001
close reached a new 30 day high
set{2v,average volume(30) * 1.5}
volume > 2v

do not draw 2v
