Hi,

Good Day.

I wonder if there is a way to do a "OR" condition.

eg.
Close gained more than 10% over the past 5 days
or Close gained more than 15% over the past 10 days

The above scan is obviously not working in the right direction.

Does a "or" exist in the stockfetcher's syntax ?

Is there other way to get the "or" function ?

Thank You.

:)
Francis

Hi mystiq and four ,

Thanks for the responses and solutions !
As a relatively new user of SF, it will take me some time to digest that, but it is a happy problem :)
In the mean time, would you mind explaining the rationale behind your scan/s, and their strength and weakness.

Thanks guys again for the help :)

:)

Hi David,

Thanks for the reply and the solutions. :)
REALLY appreciate your help !
I have been playing around with the 'slope of' but couldn't get it right.

Your first scan will favor high priced stocks as you have mentioned.
(As mentioned in the SF manual, the slope of is using linear regression.
Thus gradient of higher priced stocks will tend to be higher relatively.
Pls correct me if I am wrong in the interpretation here. thks)

Is your second scan a way to get around the bias ?

Or first scan and second scan should be 'merge' in certain way to produce a less biased result ?

Appreciate if you can guide me further.

Big thanks to you again.

:)
Francis

Hi,

Good Day to all.

I have a list of potential candidates by using the following criteria :

Stock is optionable
Price > 30
Average Volume(90) > 1,000,000

It will usually bring up about 500 stocks (approx.)

I would like to to know if there is any anyway to further break this group into :
1) Stocks that are trending up (in the uptrend for the past 50 days)
2) Stocks that are trending down (in the downtrend for the past 50 days)
3) Stocks that are moving sideway.

Appreciate any help or comment.

Thank You.

:)
Francis
