Create a watchlist. For example, if you just want to test IBM, create a watchlist called IBM, put that stock in your watchlist. Then in your filter, add the line:

and apply to watchlist(IBM)

In the line "hithigh52 above high52 1 day ago"

Your variable hithigh52 is a count number. You then compare this to high52, which is a price.

A gas station in Kentucky was trying to increase its sales, so the owner put up a sign saying, "Free Sex with Fill-Up".

Soon a local redneck pulled in, filled his tank, and then asked for his free sex. The owner told him to pick a number from 1 to 10. If he guessed correctly, he would get his free sex. The redneck then guessed 8, and the proprietor said, "You were close. The number was 7. Sorry, no sex this time."

A week later, the same redneck, along with a buddy, Bubba, pulled in for a fill-up. Again he asked for his free sex. The proprietor again gave him the same story, and asked him to guess the correct number. The redneck guessed 2 this time. Again the proprietor said, "Sorry, it was 3. You were close, but no free sex this time."

As they were driving away, the redneck said to his buddy, "I think that game is rigged. He doesn't really give away free sex."

Bubba replied, "No it ain't, Billy Ray. It ain't rigged ----- my wife won twice last week."

Your comment got me thinking, and I now know what is going on. In my filter I use custom variables that I defined in my settings. SF2.0 is not picking those up. If I remove those custom variables from my filter, then the results match. I would assume that if I define the custom variables within the filter, and not in Settings-Variables, then they should also be OK.

So my concern about getting different filter results doesn't concern anyone else? Am I missing something? I ran the filter again this morning. On current SF I get 1 stock. On SF2.0 I get 5.

It appears when you run a saved screen intraday, you don't get the same results on SF2.0 that you get on 1.0.

I ran one of my screens a little while ago on 2.0, and came up with 7 stocks. I then ran it on current SF (1.0), and only got 1 stock.

Again, this was an intraday check. I will do this comparison again later, after-hours.

Update: I ran the filter again at 6:00 EST. With the current Stockfetcher, I get 1 stock. On Stockfetcher 2.0 I get 7 stocks. I then checked another filter. On current SF I get 9 stocks; on SF2.0 I get 12.

You can solve that last line using the following:

set{return1929,close 19 days ago/close 29 days ago}
set{return919, close 9 days ago/close 19 days ago}
return1929 is below return919

Filter Exchange · May have Potential//**RSI(2) crossing Stochastics**\\
msg #49329

Nice filter. I made a few modifications, shown below. Take look at some offsets (3 to 10 days). A lot of green.

/* selection criteria */

Show stocks where rsi(5) crossed above slow stochastics(13,3) in the last 1 day
and RSI(5) reached a new 3 day high
and Average Volume(20) is above 100000
and close is between 1 and 12
industry = or > 0
not otcbb

/* Find Current Volume Multiple */

set{cvm, volume / average volume(20)}
cvm is above 1.5

/* Set entry(ntr) and exit(xit) Point */

set{ntr, count(rsi(5) crossed above slow stochastics(13,3) in the last 1 day,1)}
set{xit, count(high reached a new 10 day high in the last 1 day,1)}

/* add column information */

add column cvm
add column industry
add column exchange
sort column 5 descending

/* draw selection criteria */

draw ntr
draw slow stochastics(13,3)
draw rsi(5) on plot slow stochastics(13,3)

General Discussion · Anyone have strategies for grinding an account over PDT limit?
msg #49204

It sounds like it's NOT working for YOU right now. Take a step back and re-evaluate your strategy. Either you're risking too much, or you just can't handle the PDT pressure. You might try to lengthen your time horizom (i.e. swing trading?)

Just take a couple weeks off, analyze your strategy, and start again.

Good point about having to stay glued to the screen. The stocks Muddy is talking about in this thread can fall just as fast as they rise. But what is your daily goal? If you can identify 3 to 5 big runners in the first hour of the day, you can make 10% before noon, then go play golf the rest of the day. Set your own schedule. Sure, you're not going to make 10% every day. So figure out what you need to make on average per day (say 2%), then if you hit 10% on any day, you can close up shop for the day. That 10% would cover 5 days of your 2% average goal. Or if everything is clicking, stick around for another hour and make 15%. Do that, and you can take the next day off (if you want to). If you don't hit 10% by your time deadline (e.g. noon), close them out and try again tomorrow.
