VectorVest put out a video, on YouTube entitled the "Ins and Outs of Contra ETFs just last weekend on when to purchase Contras and they definitely hold them overnight many times.

You'll have to sit thru some VV speak and some history but if you pay close attention you'll see there are proper times to buy them and ways to manage them so they don't reverse on you too badly.

Hope this helps some,

The lower volume in the last week might be a cause for caution...but who knows.

Some other tips for learning SF code, that helped me a lot when I was beginning:

a. Look at the Examples that SF provides on its web page and even more Examples exist in the SF app on IOS.

b. for every variable you use in new code write an add column statement that shows that variable's values when the scan is run.

c. As a follow on to b. above, add additional add columns for 1 day ago, 2 days ago etc. in situations where the past is important to the scan so you can see what SF is actually retrieving.

d. freely use /* */ to comment out sections of your work in process code to hone in on problem lines.

Your answers eliminate my two ideas as workable solutions.
Below is an address to an Edgerater blog on his correlation matrix template which might solve your needs and his sw has weekly and monthly capabilities for charting etc.

There are too many templates that I like to use the most in Edgerater, but some of my favorites are his Guppy Multiple Moving Avgs, Seasonality Now (where he computes 10 years of seasonality for each stock in the watchlist from today forward 2wks, 1mth,2mths etc., Dave Mcmullen 8/20 cross template and the TASC 2/20 template and while I don't trade options yet his new templates based on his adding 10+ years of option history data to his price databases are intriguing and he's working on tying those into Earnings date historical data in a future template.

He's doing a new series of 1 hr webinars on Saturdays to be posted on youtube, I think this week he is going over his favorite templates and how to get the most out of them. stuff like having multiple template reports open at the same time and when we change stocks each report brings up that stock and the ability to take columns from a template you like and add it to another template and it retains its functionality.

Thanks,
Ed S.

No stake in Edgerater other than I’d like his one man operation to stay in business because he’s a great programmer; plus there hav been a long list of SF users asking for backtest sw recommendations over the years.

No luck? Scan works correctly!
Please provide a stock with greater than 40% earnings that my scan doesn’t find.
Thanks,
