Thank You The day point range is the actual price difference between the high and low of the day. The day point range is not converted to a percent.

stan22,

If I understand you correctly...you are trying to use the Open to Close Range as a selection criteria...instead of the High to Low Range (which is what StockFetcher uses in their "Day Point Range" measure).

Try this :

-------------------

Fetcher[set{ClOpRng, abs(Close minus Open)}

Show stocks where the ClOpRng is above 1.00
Price is above 10.00
Average Volume(65) is above 500000

sort Column 5 descending
]

---------------------

The ClOpRng column will show you the actual Range between the Open and Close !

Also, The ClOpRng column has been sorted in descending order so the stocks with the largest Close to Open Range will be at the top !

Is that what you had in mind ?

Regards,

alf44

There already exists a OPCL indicator. Check out the following URL:

http://www.stockfetcher.com/stockdb/fetcher?p=forum&sub=view&fid=1003&tid=26674&mid=26721&efstext=b3BjbA#26721

OR

http://yepher.com/stockfetcher/command-cmddoc.html#Absolute Open to Close Change
_________________

Here's a rundown...

Fetcher[show stocks where the opcl is above 0]

Fetcher[show stocks where the opcl% is below -2.5%]

Fetcher[show stocks where the aopcl is above 2.0]

Fetcher[show stocks where the aopcl% is above 5.0%]

In summary:

opcl = Open to close change
opcl% = Open to close Change Percent
aopcl = Absolute Open to Close Change
aopcl% = Absolute Open to Close Change Percent

WOW...

...I did not know that !

My "offering" from my previous post is a part of a larger scan I wrote where the Open to Close Range is used.

Oh well...
