Hi everybody!

I want to screen for a 30 day pattern:
day 1 to day 10: price is rising
day 10 to day 20: price is rising and accelerating (thatīs the issue)
day 20 to day 30: price is decreasing but not under the price at day 20

I just canīt get the price acceleration from day 10 to day 20 done.
What Iīve tried is this:

show stocks where close is above close 29 days ago and close is above close 19 days ago and close is below close 9 days ago and close 9 days ago is above close 19 days ago and close 19 days ago is above close 29 days ago

and close 19 days ago /close 29 days ago is less than close 9 days ago /close 19 days ago

The last line gets somehow ignored.

Iīd really appreciate your ideas,

You can solve that last line using the following:

set{return1929,close 19 days ago/close 29 days ago}
set{return919, close 9 days ago/close 19 days ago}
return1929 is below return919

would an increasing slope compared to the previous day range work?
