hey guys, I wanted to share a little secret with you since you helped me here with various inqueries (special thx to nicoschopen, the rumpled one, and DanO) -

one of the most consistent ways to determine the "trend" is:

"price is above price 30 days ago
MA (5) is > MA (20)"

good luck!

set{CCb,days(close is above close 30 days ago,100)}
set{CCa,days(close is below close 30 days ago,100)}
set{CxC30, CCa - CCb}

set{E50200b,days(ma(5) is above ma(20),100)}
set{E50200a,days(ma(5) is below ma(20),100)}
set{M5xM20, E50200a - E50200b}

add column CxC30
add column M5xM20

CxC30 above 0
M5xM20 above 0

close above 1
volume above 1000000
market is nasdaq

sort column 5 descending

column CxC30 - number of days close above/below close 30 days ago.

column M5xM20 - number of days MA(5) above/below MA(20).

Looks like the bottom of the list shows potential breakouts.
