StockFetcher 2.0 Beta · "Show reults 3 months ago" link

Hi,

The "Show Results 3 Months Ago" link is currently not available in StockFetcher 2.0; however, you can add the phrase and "date offset is 68" to view results from 3 months ago. At the current time, the "date offset" phrase will not bring up the "Performance" column found on the original StockFetcher.

We are continuing to add new features and updates to StockFetcher 2.0, so please keep looking for these features!

Hi,

First, yes the "weekly" data on StockFetcher represents Monday-Friday.

Next, when you print columns values using "days ago" StockFetcher will compute those values assuming that is the end-point for the week. So, while the chart will display the measure based on the entire week, the displayed value in the column will not include that additional date.

Thank you,

Tom

Hi,

What you are describing is directly related to "date offset" and weekly measures. Please review the help topic below for more details:

Hi,

Any filter you have been running recently will run just fine without the upgrade, provided you have not seen any warnings about the filter being too complex. The filters that are involved will have produced a warning message previously about the filter being too large.

Typically this warning is acheived when you have many (typically around 5-6) nested variables. This doesn't relate to total number of variables, just those which depend on several previous variables.

For example, the filter below will produce the error message because the variable 'v5' depends on several previously defined variables:

Fetcher[
set{v1,high - low}
set{v2,CMA(v1,10)}
set{v3,CMA(v1,20)}
set{v4,count(v2 crossed above v3,40)}
set{v5,v4 6 month high}
show stocks where v5 is above 5
]


However, the example below will not produce the message. Even though it contains more variables, the actual "nesting" of the variables is not as deep as the previous example.

Fetcher[
set{v1,high-low}
set{v2,close-open}
set{v3,CMA(high,10)}
set{v4,CMA(low,10)}
set{v5,CMA(v1,10)}
set{v6,CMA(v2,10)}
show stocks where v5 is above v6
and v3 crossed above v4 within the last 5 days
]


Sorry the actual examples don't make sense; they should serve more as illustrations as to where the "large" or "complex" filter restriction is targeted.

Let us know if you have any questions!

Hi,

Concerning 2002, I think there might be some confusion with the "2 year back-testing" statement. This does not mean we are only allowing a range of 2 years to choose from; instead the advanced feature allows you to configure a back-test of 2-years in length. You still have the same range of dates to choose from, but your back-test can be up to 2 years in total length.

Hi,

Thank you for the feedback. The StockFetcher back-testing feature is still in a "beta" or "preview" condition and we are continuing to refine the parameters and settings for this feature.

As indicated in the introductory post for back-testing (please see the link below), we had fully planned on back-testing being a "add-on" to a StockFetcher subscription. But, through great feedback and comments we have decided to include this feature with both the standard and advanced subscriptions, in addition to a 2-week evaluation tier.

Hi,

The entire thread (and another) has been made read-only. Unfortunately, the two threads were magnets for off-topic posts. We hate to lock-down a thread, but found that we were having to weed through too many unrelated posts.

Please feel free to start up a new thread!

We definitely aren't afraid to open the door to feature requests!

We'll be honest when a requested feature is something we are unable to implement or do not plan on implementing at this time. However, if it is something that we can implement and will help you and help the site, we are always willing to look into new features.

In fact, as requested here is a new correlation function:

Correlation (corr)

Below is an example that may help. Basically looks for stocks whose price was positively correlated to SPY over the last 100 days (starting 30 days ago) but have become negatively correlated within the last 30 days.

Fetcher[show stocks where corr(SPY,100,close) 30 days ago is above 0.50
and corr(SPY,30, close) is below -0.250
and close is above 3.00
and average volume(30) is above 250000
and add column corr(SPY,100,close) 30 days ago {long_corr}
and add column corr(SPY,30,close) {short_corr}
and compare with SPY
and chart-length is 100 days
]



This function deviates from your request in that only 1 symbol is specified. Obviously, you can focus the results using the "apply to symlist" and "apply to watchlist" features. You can also focus results to specific correlations using the "ind()" function. For example:

Fetcher[
set{myvar,IND(IBM,CORR(SPY,30,CLOSE))}
close is above 10
and add column myvar
]



The above will create a constant variable which is the correlation two specific equities.

Hope that helps!

Also, a quick follow-up on the original request. We have created two new functions:

SfPosDiv(ind1, ind2, period, pctChg)
SfNegDiv(ind1, ind2, period, pctChg)


Note: these functions are part of a new feature that allows for custom user defined functions. In essence these functions are based on the exact code you specified.

While we do not have a release date for opening up this feature, we are hoping to allow custom user functions in the near future. You'll also notice the legends on the charts are somewhat lengthy, we hope to fix that with future updates to the user-defined functions feature.



Examples:

Fetcher[sfPosDiv(MACD Fast Line(12,26,9), MA(3), 10,3) is above 0]



Fetcher[sfNegDiv(MACD Fast Line(12,26,9), MA(3), 10,3) is above 0]



Comparing with your original:

Fetcher[/*CODING FOR DIVERGENCES*/
SET{MACD_UP, COUNT(MACD(12,26,1) GAINED MORE THAN 3% OVER THE LAST 10 DAYS,1)}
SET{MACD_DN, COUNT(MACD(12,26,1) DROPPED MORE THAN 3% OVER THE LAST 10 DAYS,1)}

SET{MA3_UP, COUNT(MA(3) GAINED MORE THAN 3% OVER THE LAST 10 DAYS,1)}
SET{MA3_DN, COUNT(MA(3) DROPPED MORE THAN 3% OVER THE LAST 10 DAYS,1)}

SET{POS_DIV, MACD_UP * MA3_DN}
SET{NEG_DIV, MACD_DN * MA3_UP}

POS_DIV is above 0
]



Fetcher[/*CODING FOR DIVERGENCES*/
SET{MACD_UP, COUNT(MACD(12,26,1) GAINED MORE THAN 3% OVER THE LAST 10 DAYS,1)}
SET{MACD_DN, COUNT(MACD(12,26,1) DROPPED MORE THAN 3% OVER THE LAST 10 DAYS,1)}

SET{MA3_UP, COUNT(MA(3) GAINED MORE THAN 3% OVER THE LAST 10 DAYS,1)}
SET{MA3_DN, COUNT(MA(3) DROPPED MORE THAN 3% OVER THE LAST 10 DAYS,1)}

SET{POS_DIV, MACD_UP * MA3_DN}
SET{NEG_DIV, MACD_DN * MA3_UP}

NEG_DIV is above 0

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback. This should already be possible:

Fetcher[show stocks where IND(^SPX,fast stochastic fast %k(5,3,3,)) is below 30]


or

Fetcher[show stocks where close is above 5.00
and draw IND(^SPX,RSI(14))
]


Hope that helps!

Tom
