... it does work if you get the syntax correct

try this ...

Fetcher[set{myhi,26 day high 1 day ago} and price is above myhi]



but I still don't think that's what we're looking for.

The filter I posted works (it does identify the peak 10 days ago) for 10 days and will work for 26 days ... and will work for 26 weeks - you just have to decide over what duration you want to make sure all the highs have been lower until today ... as I said the only problem is it can get rather hairy and long if you want long periods of time or if you want to change the frequency often.

deprez,

You can tweak with ...

Fetcher[high reached a new high 26 day high]



... or ...

Fetcher[count(high above high 1 day ago,26) equal 26]



but I have a feeling you want the new 26 day high to be higher then the high the last 26 days ... and you don't necessarily want the high to be higher than the previous day for each of the last 26 days (like the count filter above) ... if so this is problematic I think. I too have tried this in trying to create a box breakout filter. Here's a 10 day filter that does that, but you can imagine it could get a little hairy if you want 26 days or even longer. Read my Box Theoy Filters post in Filter Exchange on the details. At the same time once you write this filter it will work, but it would not be very friendly if you wanted to frequently change the number of days. I'm going to keep working on this.

General Discussion · What is global?

eyoung,

Global is a "filter" that can be applied to any number of filters in your "My Filters" list. You can turn it on or off for each filter under the "global" column in your list. If it is on then SF will apply the phrase in the global filter to that filter. You can set the global filter by going to "settings" in the square bracket at the top of your "My Filters" list. A typical use of a global setting might be "close between 1 and 10" or "average volume(90) above 100000". By having this phrase as a global setting then you can change all your filters by only changing one phrase rather than having to manually change that phrase in every filter. Does that make sense?

Noah:

Check out filter exchange - RumpledOne and I are making attempts at filters to screen for x day box break outs.

RumpledOne,

I'm not sure what you're trying to do with your examples here, but let me explain what I'm trying to do.

I'm trying to filter only those stocks that have set a new high x days ago and the high from the next day till 1 day ago each day has been below that high x days ago and then the high today is above (that is box breakout) the high that was set x days ago. I think this would be an accurate representation of when a stock breaks out of a box (the time you would want to buy). The 2 filters you posted do not do this, but perhaps you're trying to do something else or you have a different interpretation of what a box breakout looks like. I'm trying to catch it the day of te breakout - not 2 or 3 days later.

Add "and draw high x day high" to my filter and notice over the duration of the x days that line does not go up (it may actually go down) - but it always goes up the last day above the high from x days ago.

Noah,

Thought I'd start a new thread in filter exchange rather than extend your general discussion thread.

Thanks for the research and posts (and your web site) on box theory - very interesting. The problem I see is simply screening for these candidate stocks - it seems manually doing so could get very old very fast. Sooooo .... how about a filter or 2 to help. Here's a start on a 10 day box theory breakout filter. As always, one can adjust close and average volume to suit individual preference, and as you've noted, to filter out volatility. Anyway, you can see the options are numerous.

I've attempted to build this filter with the count function, but it does not work as the reference to high x days ago (even if you set it as a parameter) increments with the counter - a short coming IMO of the count function - assuming I've exhausted that option (others please have at it) - and I have been experimening for quite awhile - but still can't seem to make it (the count function) work.

Anyway ... click on this and let me know what you think.

eatmoreplant ... check your math - you may be thinking simple interest, but a 5% daily gain compounded yields a 323011% annual gain (260 trading day assumpton).

try this ..

Fetcher[SHOW STOCKS WHERE CLOSE 1 day ago is decreasing over the last 4 DAYS and close is increasing and VOLUME IS above VOLUME 1 DAY AGO AND VOLUME 1 DAY AGO is below AVERAGE VOLUME(90) 1 day ago AND AVERAGE VOLUME(90) IS ABOVE 250,000 AND WEEKLY SLOW STOCHASTICS(5,3) %K IS below 20]



I haven't looked at the charts extensively, but I think it should help a little.

...you also had a couple of errors in your syntax; a'/' in stochastic rather than a ',' and you had average(90) volume raher than average volume(90)

...also, keep in mind above is interpreted as equal to or above and below is interpreted as equal to or below
