Can someone send me the formula for scanning for the most volatile stocks priced at over $100 per share and are optionable? In other words, I'm looking for positions that have the wildest up and down swings within the last 6 months.

Thanks in advance

Use the Average Day Range(30) . I started with it at 2.00. Raise or lower it as you see fit.


Submit
Fetcher[
and Average Day Range(30) is above 2.00
add column Average Day Range(30)
do not draw Average Day Range(30)
market is not otcbb
market is not etf
price is above 100
Draw Ema(20)
chart-time is 1 year
and EMA(20) is above EMA(20) one day ago


/* Ema20 is number of consecutive days Ema(20) above (+)/below(-) previous Ema(20) one day ago */
set{e20b,days( ema(20) is above ema(20) one day ago ,250)}
set{e20a,days( ema(20) is below ema(20) one day ago ,250)}
set{ema20, e20a - e20b} and add column ema20 {ema20}

Set{cntema20,count( ema(20) > ema(20) one day ago ,1)}
draw cntema20

Set{cntema20b,count( ema(20) < ema(20) one day ago ,1)}

draw cntema20b

Can always just calculate by the percentage difference between the 6-month high and 6-month low. Then sort in descending order.

Fetcher[
optionable
close > 100
set{6mh,high 6 month high}
set{6ml,low 6 month low}
set{delta,6mh / 6ml}
add column delta
sort column 5 descending
chart-time 6 months
]

X, that is the method I use also except I use the 252 day high and low. Also filter by >= 3.

Now on my filter above I modified it with
and EMA(20) is above EMA(20) one day ago

Something to remember is those stocks that are above $100 are less Volatile .
If you search Deadly Combo by 13th_floor and his use of Average Day Range(30) to find more volatile stocks. The Deadly combo uses stocks below 15.

I personally don't trade OTCBB because I burned myself early on.
So its
Market is not otcbb
Market is not etf.
Also volatile going up and volatile going down too.
