Look for my post "Technique: Calculate returns for any period" (or something very simmilar). (A forum search on 'cegis technique' should show it prettu near the top, I think...) It describes how to do what you are looking for. While there's nothing wrong with the prior example, if you're looking for the next five day's data, it might make more sense to use 5 days ago, ..., down to 1 day ago, then use offset to look at different periods. This is all explained in my prior post.

mktmole,

If you look up the description of CMA (either in the new user guide [I assume it's there], in the announcements, or on yepher's page [you'd need to search these forums for the url]), you'll see that you need to tell it WHAT you want the CMA of! E.g., CMA(result2, 3)

Also, I'm not sure if SF will have a problem with using a set{} variable name that contains a hyphen. (This is frequently a limitation in computing languages, so it's not confused with the 'minus' function.) I'd suggest removing it from CCI-STO (maybe using CciSto?).

Also, set{A, CCI(14)} is all you need. The "today __ value today" is not required (and may cause SF grief)...

And lastly, if you enclose your filter within Fetcher [ and ] (no space between fetcher and [), it will become a hot-link that will run the filter for readers of your posts. This is tremendously helpful to people trying to help out...

mktmole,

You pretty much have the filter, all you have to do is "translate it" to what StockFetcher can understand. Look at the set{} command and CMA() function. Give it a shot, and if you run into problems, post what you have and the issue...

I thought I'd add to this thread just to bring it to the top of the forum list. It seems to be a popular topic lately...

I wrote this up a while back, in a thread entitled "Technique: Calc your own returns - for any period". Search the forums for "cegis technique" and it'll be there.

Filter Exchange · Can IBD 100 be filtered within a Watchlist with my own scan?

Add "apply to watchlist <name>", substituting the name of your watchlist for <name>. (I'm fairly sure that's right. If it doesn't work, search the forums for "apply to"...)

woofys,

Geez, I blush!

But you mis-read what I posted...

It's not Zepher.com, it's, Yepher.com. As in yepher, the SF member. There's a direct link to his manual in these forums somewhere. Search the SF forums for Yepher.com, and you should be able to find it pretty easily...

If you have specific questions, just ask. The **KEY** point to the whole thing is the fact that "zero times anything equals zero", and "one times anything equals anything". You get your zero and one values using count(<cond>,1), and zero means that <cond> is false, and 1 means it's true. Does that help?

Maybe add "volume > 0"?

Filter Exchange · gap up size relative to the average candle size

ImperialWhazoo,

I usually like to see some effort on the part of the poster to figure out what they're looking for, but since you described your strategy pretty completely, I'm inclined to help...

1) Average body size:

set{bodysize, abs(open - close)} /* This will always be positive. */
set{avgbodysize, CMA(bodysize,5)}

You need to use abs(), or else the CMA won't give you what (I think) you're looking for... (I assume you want red body sizeto average the same way as a white body size; i.e., a body of -0.10 is the same "size" as one of +0.10...)

2) White candle on Gap Up on Open:

set{gapup, count(open - close 1 day ago > 0,1)}
set{white, count(open < close,1)}
set{whitecandle, white * abs(close - open)}
set{WCgap, whitecandle * gapup}

WCgap > 0 /* only select white candle gap up stocks */

add column WCgap / CMA(bodysize,5)
add column WCgap / CMA(bodysize,6)
add column WCgap / CMA(bodysize,7)
add column WCgap / CMA(bodysize,8)
/* etc... */

tecnoal,

Are you looking for CEMA(OBV(30),30)? CEMA(<indicator>,<period>) gives the EMA of the <indicator> over the <period>... (The "C" stands for "custom"...)
