Thanks for the filter! I was trying to construct a crude facsimilie last week but it proved futile. Now for some questions about your scan:

Could you explain your "greed" index?
Could you explain your "clxcl" heading?
Also, your "volcnt" and "volzrero" headings as well?

Thank you for an awesome filter that hits the bullseye relative to what I was trying to build.

The Rumpled One,

Thanx for taking your time answering all my questions.

I have another one for you. My trading platform's annual subscription is expiring soon. I'm looking for an upgrade. Do you use TradeStation? If not, what platform would you recommend?

Thanx in advance.

Jim

Hi TRO,

I've been trying to morph your OPEN-to-HIGH scan into a CLOSE (1 day ago)-to-HIGH (today) scan but haven't been getting through to the Promised Land. Basically, where you have "HiOp, high - open" I have substituted "PP, high - close 1 day ago," where PP stands for Potential Profit.

In summary, I am wanting to analyze potential profit for any stocks that I hold overnight using your 100-day statistical method showing various profit levels.

In the following scan please pardon the erroneous reads. For example, in the PP column I would expect a simple one day Potential Profit from the difference between the "CLOSE" and "HIGH" columns. I am sure that there are other false results as well till this baby is debugged.

Fetch[
/* Yesterday's Close to Today's High Stat Filter (100 Days) */

Volume > 100000

set{PP, high - close 1 day ago}
set{ MaxPP , PP 100 day high }
set{ MinPP , PP 100 day low }
set{ AvgPP , CMA( PP , 100 ) }

set{B00A, count(PP > .00 , 100)}
set{B25A, count(PP > .25 , 100)}
set{B50A, count(PP > .50 , 100)}
set{B75A, count(PP > .75 , 100)}

add column Open
add column High
add column Low
add column separator
add column Close Yesterday
add column separator
add column PP
add column MaxPP
add column AvgPP
add column MinPP
and add column B00A {>.00}
and add column B25A {> .25}
and add column B50A {> .50}
and add column B75A {> .75}
and add column separator

/* SELECTION CRITERIA */

SYMLIST()

sort column 11 descending

/* Notes: PP = Potential Profit */
]

Any help that you could lend -- only when your busy schedule would permit, of course -- would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Jim

TRO,

A thousand thanks to you kind sir.

I was unwittingly beating my head all yesterday against the PP wall, oblivious to its Pivot Point status!

I appreciate your added tweaks as well.

You are a God-send.

Have a wonderful New Year's day.

Thank you.

Jim

TRO,

I am trying to build an additional filter as an adjunct to your OPEN TO HIGH that gives me the following twelve column info (providing for the # of times that the stock in the past 100 trading days has fallen within the following):

< 0 0-10% 11-20% 21-30% 31-40% 41-50% 51-60%


61-70% 71-80% 81-90% 91-100% >100

The following will hopefully demonstrate where I'm at, and where I'm not at, in this process.

Fetch[ /* Open to High % Stat Filter for Past 100 Trading Days */

set{xPP, high - open}

set{B00A, count(xpp < .00, 100)}
set{B01A, count(xPP > .00 , xPP < .11 , 100)}
set{B02A, count(xPP > .10 , xPP < .21 , 100)}
set{B03A, count(xPP > .20 , xPP < .31 , 100)}
set{B04A, count(xPP > .30 , xPP < .41 , 100)}
set{B05A, count(xPP > .40 , xPP < .51 , 100)}
set{B06A, count(xPP > .50 , xPP < .61 , 100)}
set{B07A, count(xPP > .60 , xPP < .71 , 100)}
set{B08A, count(xPP > .70 , xPP < .81 , 100)}
set{B09A, count(xPP > .80 , xPP < .91 , 100)}
set{B10A, count(xPP > .90 , xPP < 1.01 , 100)}
set{B11A, count(xPP > 1.00)}

and add column B00A {< 0}
and add column B01A {0-10%}
and add column B02A {11-20%}
and add column B03A {21-30%}
and add column B04A {31-40%}
and add column B05A {41-50%}
and add column B06A {51-60%}
and add column B07A {61-70%}
and add column B08A {71-80%}
and add column B09A {81-90%}
and add column B10A {91-100%}
and add column B11A {> 100}
and add column separator

/* SELECTION CRITERIA */

and Average Volume > 100000

SYMLIST( )

/* SORT CRITERIA */

/* Notes: xPP = Potential Profit */ ]

My debugger spits out the following:

Count: 'xpp > .00 , xpp < .11 ' too many phrases within count construct
Count: 'xpp > .00 , xpp < .11 ' too many phrases within count construct
Count: 'xpp > .00 , xpp < .11 ' too many phrases within count construct
Count: 'xpp > .00 , xpp < .11 ' too many phrases within count construct

... etc.

Are there any other ways to phrase these counts without violating syntax?

I appreciate any help that you can offer.

Thank you,

Jim

TRO or nikoschopen,

My filter is still glitching. Below is an abbreviated edition to avoid the 10 { } limit that pops up with some inaugural scan building. The debug comments are included:

/* Open to High % Stat Filter for Past 100 Trading Days */

set{xPP, high - open} OK
set{B01A, count(xPP between .00 and .10 , 100) OK
set{B02A, count(xPP between .11 and .20 , 100)} OK
set{B03A, count(xPP between .21 and .30 , 100)} OK
set{B04A, count(xPP between .31 and .40 , 100)} OK

... etc. Here's where it gets funky:

and add column B01A {0-10} Error: Syntax error in filter. Variable: 'count(xpp' undefined Warning: 'b01a' Syntax Error: count(xpp between .00 and .10 , 100) and set{b02a, count(xpp between .11 and .20 , 100)

and add column B02A {11-20} Error: Syntax error in filter. Warning: 'b01a' Syntax Error: count(xpp between .00 and .10 , 100) and set{b02a, count(xpp between .11 and .20 , 100)

and add column B04A {31-40} Error: Syntax error in filter. Warning: 'b01a' Syntax Error: count(xpp between .00 and .10 , 100) and set{b02a, count(xpp between .11 and .20 , 100)

and add column separator Error: Syntax error in filter. Warning: 'b01a' Syntax Error: count(xpp between .00 and .10 , 100) and set{b02a, count(xpp between .11 and .20 , 100)

and Average Volume > 100000 Error: Syntax error in filter. Warning: 'b01a' Syntax Error: count(xpp between .00 and .10 , 100) and set{b02a, count(xpp between .11 and .20 , 100)

SYMLIST( ) Error: Syntax error in filter. Warning: 'b01a' Syntax Error: count(xpp between .00 and .10 , 100) and set{b02a, count(xpp between .11 and .20 , 100)

I piddled around with the numbers initially, thinking that the syntax error had something to do with overlapping my original set of numbers but that doesn't seem to be the case.

If you get some free time could you give it a look at your convenience? Your expertise is appreciated.

Jim

Mighty Riggs,

Glad to have you back on-line with this thread!

I just want to encourage you that there are those of us who truly love what you bring to table. Since following your posts, which unfortunately have been all-too-often interrupted by a certain unnamed egg throwing "hooligan," I have often thought of how the following quotes by our 26th U.S. President -- Theodore Roosevelt -- apply to you. If you'll indulge me for a few moments:

One of the top three most requested TR quotes is that regarding the "Man in the Arena," aka "Not the Critic":

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

-- ("Citizenship in a Republic," Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910)

Below are additional quotations related to the more famous and later quote. These quotes taken from a cdrom (viz., The Works of Theodore Roosevelt -- National Edition, A Product of H-Bar Enterprises Copyright 1997)

"...the man who really counts in the world is the doer, not the mere critic-the man who actually does the work, even if roughly and imperfectly, not the man who only talks or writes about how it ought to be done." (1891)

"Criticism is necessary and useful; it is often indispensable; but it can never take the place of action, or be even a poor substitute for it. The function of the mere critic is of very subordinate usefulness. It is the doer of deeds who actually counts in the battle for life, and not the man who looks on and says how the fight ought to be fought, without himself sharing the stress and the danger." (1894)
