I would suggest scanning for a specific value for the "squeeze" rather than looking for a new 6 month low. VIZ: set squeeze, top - bottom / ma(20)} AND squeeze is below .20

My thinking is that there could be a couple of squeezes in a 6 month period and todays value might be .14 while the previous values might be .13 or less.
With a value this low, who is to say that the most current squeeze might not turn out to be the most profitable?

Thanks for sharing your scan as I think it has a lot of potential.

I want to acknowledge your efforts and thank you for posting your scans. They both fit my style of trading and provide me with an awesome watch list as they flow into great entry points using my favorite indicators.

Well done.

Thank you both for your posts concerning bollinger band squeezes.

FWIW here is my contribution.

My scan is set up to limit the number of hits, as you can see, by the narrow price range and the volume requirement plus I tend to trade nasdaq. Of course, change these as you see fit.

However, no matter the number of hits returned, you can quickly pick the strongest possibilities, IMHO, as follows.

1. Ignore stocks that are "flat lining" such as BNBN ONTC & SATH

2. Eliminate stocks where the RSI(14) is trending down.

3. Eliminate stocks where +DI(14) and ADX are trending down.

4. SELECT those stocks where +DI(14) is above -DI(14) and ADX is rising and RSI(14) should also be rising.

Fetcher[show stocks where the Bollinger width(20) is between 0 and 0.20 for the last 4 days lag 1 day
and RSI(14) is above 60
and market is nasdaq
and average volume(60) is above 150000 and volume is above 150000
and close is between 1 and 5
and sort column 2 ascending
and days offset is 0

Take a look at this scan with a 5, 6, 7 and 8 day offset.

Also note that some stocks that don't 'qualify' per selection rules above may be worth putting on a short term watch list until the indicators mentioned turn positive.

Comments welcome.
