Is there any way SF can keep track of an open gap like below?

A few years back I recall KevinGA was looking for exactly this, but, I could not find the thread. I cant find any software or newsletter service that tracks this.

Can anyone help??

Simply looking at internal signals from each stock within the ETF to help signal an change in the tide.

Support,

In my recent experiences, most of the common indexes, the numbers are off by approx 15%

Background

While listening to the world class trader Linda Bradford Raschke on youtube*, she spoke of one of her favorite setups where if close is > ma(5) for 7 of the last 7 days, then buy the 1st close below the ma(5) and sell 7 days later.
*https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zf6zPlqVVr0 (6:30 mark)

Fetcher[/* GLOBAL*/
show optionable stocks
and not etf
and price above 4
and avgvol(90) is > 250000

and close is above ma(200)
and ma(150) is above ma(200)


and count(close is above ma(5), 7) equals 7
]



While tinkering in backtesting, I noticed brief periods where this filter would drop to zero. They made for FANTASTIC entry points in the major indexes. This lead me to think that tracking internal technicals would be an ideal sell or buy signal for ETFs, indexes or for timing trades in general.

thoughts?

p.s. entry dates back tested last 2 years:

==2012==
6-19
10-31


==2013==
6-16

==2014==
2-5

Un-optimized Summary: if your in an up-trending market this calc equals zero "count(close is above ma(5), 7) equals 7", then buy the next open.

I need the super smart traders here to tell me if this is possible.

Goal: Trade an ETF based on the technicals of the stocks that are in the ETF.

Example: If 34% of the Dow 30 is above it's ma(8), buy DIA.

I see we have symbol list dow 30, or watch lists to call.

Why are these values not the same?
ROI(%)
Gain/Loss(%)
Realized G/L(%)

Is there a SF help area on this? (it best seen on a hover-over)
