You can use Yahoo Finance. Just type in the stock symbol, then on the left column find "Key Statistics" under "Company." It also gives % held by insiders, % held by institutions, the float, etc.

Tom,

As for me, the current limit of 201 is sufficient if the 201 stocks that are downloaded can be the 201 that I want to download. But currently the ability to control which stocks are downloaded does not appear to be an option. Current downloads into Excel are downloads of returned stocks up to a limit of 201, in alphabetical order. It's the mandatory alphabetical order feature that creates the problem for me.

However, if SF cannot alter the alphabetical downloading restriction, then an alphabetical list limit of 400 would be twice as valuable to me as the current limit.

Thanks for your attention to this Tom.

If SF cannot increase the number of stocks that are downloaded, an accommodation would be an improvement:

If the stocks that have been returned from a filter could at least be downloaded in the order that they are arranged on the return page, rather than be automatically converted to an alphabetical order, one could then get one's desired top 201 stocks rather than the stocks in the top part of the alphabet.

Thanks for your consideration of this.

I searched keywords "download" and "limit," but have not been able to find a SF announcement or comment addressing limits to downloading. It appears from trying to download more than 201 that there IS a limit (unless one engages in creative enterprises such as suggested by Rob-- thanks by the way), but I'm wondering if that limit is able to be modified?

Tom, might the limit be increased?

Thanks,

Has the original question in this post been answered somewhere? I am finding the same limitation- 201 stocks only are downloaded into Exel when I attempt to download the list of symbols returned by a filter search.

I would like to be able to download the entire list. Can this be done? And if so, how?

Hi Mark

As far as your interest in the Muddy Method goes, I have followed it since its inception over a year ago and can attest to the fact that it can do remarkably well in down and sideways markets. In these markets you may need to take your profits earlier than if in a bull market. But the daily profits are definitely there for the taking. If you look at the % Gainers list over the past month, the lion's share have been what we call "muddy" stocks.

I'd suggest that you check out the site at:

http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/stockfetcher/

You will notice there are more posts and files than you can possibly read in a day, so I suggest you read files in the file section and also two posts.

The one post is by me to newcomers (msg # 3874). The only thing I'd alter from that post back then is that there are now more than just the 2 primary types of plays that we follow, and also I wrote that we "enter and wait for the dawn" which may give the impression that we enter stocks when they are "at bottom" and try to catch falling knives. But that's not what I meant at all by that phrase, just that the stocks are bottom feeder types. We always wait for "green," or "for the first light of dawn"] before entering.

The 2nd message, and by far more important, is msg # 2789, posted by "Muddy" himself. It explains how he trades and the filters he uses. He too might add footnotes today to that post, but he will tell you all about that if you post or email him.


Just talk to "Muddy" himself and get the scoop straight from him. He is an experienced trader of nearly 40 years and very willing to share his time and expertise in the methods he uses. He loves talking stocks.


Happy trading!

General Discussion · How to filter one specific stock?

If all you want to do is SEE what the RSI(14) was for each of the past n days, you could just set up the RSI(14) indicator on your chart, and then as you move your cursor/hairline back in time, the RSI(14) value should appear at whatever point you choose to stop and look. Most charting programs (such as Prophet.Net) enable you to do this.

I noticed a slight error in the wording of the "do not draw" portion of the 2nd box filter above (the tweaked one). To eliminate the chart-cluttering and not-especially-useful 5 week high lines on your charts, the do not draw command useful. But I mis-wrote the 2nd half of the command. It should read "and do not draw close 5 week high" instead of "and do not draw high 5 day high."

So the correct wording is as follows:

Fetcher[show stocks where high reached a new 25 day high within the last 7 days and close is between 1 and 10 and close is above the ma(20) and close is below upper bollinger band(20) and average volume(90) is above 100000 and volume is above 100000 and close is below the 25 day high and RSI(10) is below 70 and do not draw high 5 week high and do not draw close 5 week high]

I'll nominate Muddy's modified Darvas Box filter. It's much more useful than the original Darvas Box filter in that it catches the rebound near the bottom of the consolidation phase after a new high rather than waiting for the rebound to form yet another new high before entry (as per Darvas).

This is Muddy's original modified Darvas box filter (referred to commonly in the SF Muddy group as simply the box filter:

Fetcher[SHOW STOCKS WHERE THE CLOSE REACHED A NEW 52 WEEK HIGH WITHIN THE LAST 10 DAYS AND PRICE IS BETWEEN 1 AND 15 AND AVERAGE VOLUME (90) IS GREATER THAN 100000 AND VOLUME IS GREATER THAN 100000 AND STOCK PRICE IS 100 % GREATER THAN 52 WEEK LOW AND WHERE CLOSING PRICE GAINED MORE THAN 26% IN THE LAST 26 WEEKS AND RSI (2) IS BELOW 20]

.

For a tweaked version of this that finds a larger quantity of stocks, but at a shorter "new high" period, and which limits the returns to the upper half of the chart (above the Bollinger Bands midline), try the following:

Fetcher[show stocks where high reached a new 25 day high within the last 7 days and close is between 1 and 10 and close is above the ma(20) and close is below upper bollinger band(20) and average volume(90) is above 100000 and volume is above 100000 and close is below the 25 day high and RSI(10) is below 70 and do not draw high 5 week high and do not draw high 5 day high]

General Discussion · Ave Vol of Past White Candles Only

Wow, that WAS brilliant, cegis! The sum feature was the perfect solution.

(If others are interested in the sum feature, it is found under the Announcements Section of the Forum, in the "More Math functions Available" thread). Actually, since it is so short, I'll just reproduce it here:

sum(IND,LENGTH): return the sum of a measure, over the specified length.

Fetcher[
set{diff, close - close 1 day ago}
set{product, diff * volume},
show stocks where sum(product,10) crossed above 0
]



Thanks again for the creative solution! For my purpose I tweaked the filter you posted by adding, "and close above high," so that the most recent candle is always white.


Great job cegis!
