So, what's the strategy to trade the Facebook IPO?

Conflicting reports are all over the place ...

Many have suggested that your set your entry criteria, in StrataSearch or in live trading, to only enter when price crosses above yesterday's (or the signal day's) close.

In case you want to know if that hundredth digit is odd or even ... using this definition of an even number ... there is no remainder after dividing the number by 2

Fetcher[
/* ===== extract hundredth digit ... with NO rounding of the hundredth digit ===== */
set{a, close * 100}
set{b, mod(a, 1)}
set{c, a - b}
set{d, c / 10}
set{e, mod(d,1)}
set{f, e * 10}

/* ===== is hundredth digit even or odd ===== */
set{g, mod(f,2)}
set{h, g - mod(g,1)}
set{even, count(h equals 0,1)}
set{odd, count(h greater than 0,1)}

add column even
add column odd

For example: I want the hundredth digit of the close of SPY on 2/17/2012 = 136.41

This method worked as expected:
a) 136.41 * 100 = 13641.33 ... shift hundredth digit 2 places to left, revealing additional precision
b) mod(13641.33,1) = remainder of (13641.33/1) = 0.33 ... frac() and int() functions would also be useful for these
c) 13641.33 - 0.33 = 13641.00 ... clean up the right side
d) 13641.00 / 10 = 1364.10 ... shift digits 1 place to right
e) mod(1364.10,1) = remainder of (1364.10/1) = 0.10
f) 0.10 x 10 = 1.00 ... shift digit 1 place to left

Fetcher[
/* ===== extract hundredth digit ... with NO rounding of the hundredth digit ===== */
set{a, close * 100}
set{b, mod(a, 1)}
set{c, a - b}
set{d, c / 10}
set{e, mod(d,1)}
set{f, e * 10}

add column a
add column b
add column c
add column d
add column e
add column f
]





*Here is another version that I thought would work, but for some reason this method did not produce the results I expected. In some cases it rounded the hundredth digit up and in other cases it rounded the hundredth digit down.
a) 136.41 * 10 = 1364.133
b) mod(1364.133,1) = remainder of (1364.133/1) = 0.133
c) 0.133 x 10 = 1.33
d) mod(1.33,1) = 0.33
e) 1.33 - 0.33 = 1.00

Fetcher[
/* ===== extract hundredth digit from close ... with rounding of the hundredth digit ===== */
set{a, close * 10}
set{b, mod(a, 1)}
set{c, b * 10}
set{d, mod(c, 1)}
set{e, c - d}

add column a
add column b
add column c
add column d
add column e

StockFetcher 2.0 Beta · Icons used in "add to Chart (draw)"

When selecting from the "Filter Builder > indicator > add to Chart (draw)" drop-down window ... it looks like you used the same icon for "More than" and "Less than" ... shouldn't the "Less than" be pointing down?

While you're at it ... for the "remove indicator from Chart" icon, you could use a big red "X" on top of some squigglies ... without an icon, it's easy to miss that option
