I can remember at least 30 years ago my father subscribed to a newsletter by Jay Saxena.
I marveled how this man who hit 4 bagger after 4 bagger.
The newsletter came monthly, and contained a portfolio of about 20 stocks.
I would often glance at it, and observe when the initial commitment was made.
So I tried to re-engineer the system he was using.
It seemed to me at the time, he mostly played nasdaq stocks.
What I came up with was a monthly filter that seemed seamless with his initial entries.
I would use Bigcharts at the time. Set the parameters for monthly viewing.
The only T/A I used was macd viewed over a monthly graph.
What I noticed was the stocks were starting an ascent on heavy volume which also corresponded
to the macd crossover on a monthly view.
Back then, TA was not as savvy as it is today.
I played the stocks I could find simply by entering as many symbols as I could into Bigcharts until I found what I was looking for,
I can remember some plays were ESOL, COHR, OVTI to name a few.
I had decent success with this system, but it was very cumbersome and time consuming.
Is it possible to write this filter in SF?

SF can't do monthly, only weekly or daily. Here is a weekly template based on your post to get you started.

market nasdaq
MACD Histogram(12,26,9) crossed above 0
volume 1 week ago reached a new 1 month high
volume reached a new 1 month high

chart display weekly
chart-time 1 year
