@chasS,

Can you scroll all the way down to the horizontal line above the dates for your binocular chart upper window?

If so, you should be able to hover over that line and have that blue adjustment circle reappear and perhaps use it to go back to normal.

@chasS,

A couple of things to try to maybe help see what is going on.

1. Run stockfectcher in another browser without signing in to your account, and run a filter from one of the forum posts and go a chart and see what it looks like, if normal that rules out your computer as the problem.

2. At the top right hand corner of your binocular chart is a green symbol click on that and try both actions and look at the resulting charts after acting on those links, that way we might see how SF is viewing your chart internally

Using your script above I get no crossover results on any date and when I plot the 8 on the 20 plot no crossovers ever appear in past year.
However when I add columns to see the values of the 8 and 20 on given days, the 8 is below the 20 in a few days in May.

changing the chart display to weekly did not seem to help.

are those all of the lines of your script in your post?

weekly stuff in SF is many times inconsistent.

Thanks,
Ed S.

A couple of chart related tips:

1. if you add the following sample line to his CanSlim filter you will be able to see the values for each graph data point by clicking the chart and slowly dragging it to the right, the number inside the box of the same color as the line will change for each day.

draw EntryLevel on plot price

2. If you don't want to edit the filter to change the symbol list before you look at the charts, you can just run the filter as is, bring up the chart, and type in a symbol name in the box at the top left and click on the word chart to the right of that box and the chart will change to your symbol and apply all of the filter criteria to that symbol's chart.

It occurred to me that this chart filter capability may be one of the primary reasons there are complexity limits on filters.....

1. You are not providing the merry band of SF filter detectives much info to make an assessment.

a. like what stocks you think meet the breakout requirement that are not showing up in your filter results.

b. what your filter code looks like

c. what offset you are using in donchian band command

d. what stock parameter you are applying/comparing the donchian band command to high, close, etc.

2. The following statement added to your filter might help you figure out what SF is calculating:

add column close minus upper Donchian Band(30,1) (I'm using Close and 1 day offset)

Yep, those are 2 excellent examples of what can be found using choice 6. up above, circa 2015..

Also, if you enter "Please let us know" in the SF search box you'll get some results that have some of the not well known indicators/functions: such as Percent Rank which is about 8 results down on the first page of results returned from that search. (note that poster is "Stockfetcher")

@Gene,

This is the old thread that has some of SF undocumented commands and how to find others.

@push5280,

1. I was just trying to point out what appeared to be excessive steps to get to the ratio of 12 month gains to 12 month losses (the goal of 2). I didn't realize that your Goal Seek depended on those formula...

However, an alternative way of getting your new lower Stop loss percentage in those cases where the ratio calculation is less than 2.0 is to use the following formula in Excel:

=((12 month total gain/2) / #of losing trades)

2. I would still like to know if you are using a trailing stop or not?

Thanks,
Ed S.

@zeos,
Yes the advanced subscription level has complexity limits set by SF, generally at around 10 nested set statements but sometimes there are ways to change your filter code to cut down nesting levels and still get the end result your after but not always.

Even referring to a multi level nested variable in an add column statement can be the complexity shut off point

SF also has cautioned us that mixing weekly and daily commands in filters will sometimes hav unexpected results...

@push5280,

1. It seems to me that you have a few unnecessary calcs in your spreadsheet...I believe if you just divide your total 12 month gains by your total 12 month losses you'll get identical results; since dividing a total by a count is what gives you the average, which means multiplying the avg by the count gives you the total you started with.

Is your 7% stop loss a trailing stop?

Thanks,
Ed S.
