Hi
I am working on an idea -- this is simular to FADING THE GAP STATISTICS FILTER

What I want is this:

1. Open is up --- what percent of the time does this stock close above open and by how much

OR

2. Open is down --- what percent of the time does this stock close below open and by how much

This type of programing is above me.

Thanks for the help

See ya
David

Hi Chetron

I was thinking open compared to yesterdays close.
Your question got me to thinking and maybe it should be open up compared to yesterdays high
or open down compared to yesterdays low??????
I am just trying to see if the statistics might help our trading.
If stock XYZ opens up and the odds are 90% it will close higher------ ??? Hope to find something like that.

Thanks for the interest.
See ya

Stats for last 20 days high minus high 1 day ago

penny column : how many times .01 above high 1 day ago

dime : how many times .10 above high 1 day ago

lose : how many times high minus high 1 day ago was .01 but not .10 (low lose column is better)

Place buy order .01 above high 1 day ago, sell for dime profit.

Thanks Chetron. Can you tell me what were the "special characters" that I used that kept the clickable feature from kicking in? The "%" and "#" symbols? Dang! They look great on my results page. Anything else?
