I have the following line in one of my searches and the returns don't make sense. "Show stocks where the 60 day slope of the OBV is above 10,000"

From the reading I've done I was expecting the slope to be around "1". I created a column to see what kind of numbers were being returned and I'm getting both positive and negative numbers.

The filter line works fine with price so I'm wondering if the issue has to do with the fact I am working with OBV. Any ideas?

Thanks, Dan

"Show stocks where the 60 day slope of the OBV is above 10,000"

If you were expecting the slope to be around 1, then try rephrasing the above line to read "Show stocks where the 60 day slope of the OBV is above 1"

That's the point I'm trying to make. If I use "1" I get a virtual flat line, where as a "1" should return about a 45 degree line.

You might play around with a set statement similar to the filter below : Fetcher[set{obv%,obv(1) /obv(30)} obv% above 1 add column obv% close between 1 and 10 average volume (90)above 100000 draw 30 day slope of obv]

Thanks to both RumpledOne and Corsino. I really appreaciated you taking the time to help me. I borrowed a little from both your suggestions and I did start to get the results I was expecting.

Thanks again
Dan
