Hello -

I am new to StockFetcher, and trying to write a simpler filter that will show me all stocks whose volume today > average daily volume (over past 30 days or so) * 2. So all stocks that traded more than twice their average daily volume. I tried making a filter where I filtered for

volume > average volume (30) * 2

But that gave me over 3000 stocks. Then I tried

volume > (average volume (30) * 2)

which gave me 0 stocks.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

Fetcher[set{x, average volume(30) * 2}
volume > x
]

When doing math in SF code, it is almost always better to do it within user-defined variables (the SET{} statement) rather than trying to integrate it into the filter selection. Also remember that you can only do one mathematical operation per set{} statement - a real limitation with SF code. Not sure why they can't improve on this.
