It is possible. In fact, it is a prebuilt filter on the home page of the site. On the home page, look at the Quick Picks screen and make sure that Market Technical tab is selected. Click on the [+] sign next to Moving averages, this will expand it to show all the prebuilt filters under this category. The filter you are looking for is the 4th one. Click on it and you are done.
In the future, if you canít find the filter you want, you can copy any prebuilt filter code to your filters and customize it to do whatever you need. Here is one way to do that.

After you click on any prebuilt filter and the result screen shows up, look at the tabs on top and select Customize. Now you can see the code for this prebuilt filter. Copy it to your My Filters tab and change the parameters to whatever you want.


Welcome aboard

I am sorry I did not read your first post carefully. I am sure the code can be written, I just canít do this at the moment since I am still at work. A quick short cut is to change the Look back setting after the prebuilt filter runs. For example, if you run the 50/200 today, you will get 8 results. Hover your mouse over the date Tuesday November 10, 2009 Ė the first line on top of the results grid Ė and you will get a drop down menu with options One day ago, Two days ago, One week ago, etc. Basically what this does is that it instructs the filter to look for the cross not on todayís date but rather on the Look back settings you just selected. Letís say you go for a week ago and run the filter. Now look at the Since(%) column- it will appear after you change the look back period - to see the percentage change since the cross. Even better, click on the header of this column once or twice to sort the result set ascending or descending by this column and then you can select the percentage you want, say 1% since for instance. Hope this help until you get the parameterized code written.

To limit the results of the filter to a group of stocks of your choice, add a "symlist" phrase. For example, if you insert this as the last line of the 50/200 code, you will get only 2 results for today instead of 8

Does anyone know where I can find this database or a way to build it (i.e. csv files or similar). Open, close, high and low per day would do.

Thanks in advance.

Works OK for me on two different machines. Did you change any firewall settings in your router?

Eman,

I got your email. I will print the manual and dig into the APIs. However, I may not be as fast as we both hope for. The work load these days is a little crazy .

Thanks

Eman,

I have few days off from work to recover from a surgery. I think I can take a look at these manuals you sent me. The only thing is I don't know if I will be able to test my code on the demo version or not since I don't have a Fidelity account. I also wanted to ask you about the name of the book you read about these support & resistance lines.

You will get a lot of $#it like that from E-Trade. Save yourself some frustration and find another broker.

Thanks for the advice and kind wishes. Would you mind telling me what are the filters you used to suggest these trades?
