Hi - If I want to write a condition in SF12 looking for situations where "todays" volume is 50% greater than the 20 day average volume, is the formula V>(Avg(V,20)*1.50)?Thanks very much!

That should work in TC2000.

It is on optional parameter for the number of bars ago if you want to check a past value.

 Bruce I would like to create this formula, Average 20 day volume 300K,  I'm trying to add these other two formulas, this is the second one, minvol 20 > 200k is true daily, and then this is the third one,14  PERIOD ATR 0.30 Average, I think I got that first formula correct, cuz I'm trying to go into the page with what I want and see what I come up with but as usual it gets a little chaotic but I think this is right,
Average 20 day volume 300K
AVGH20 - AVGL20 > 1 AND AVGV20 > 30000

The first formula about the average 20 day volume greater than 300K is close, but missing a zero (or the 300K has an extra zero and should be 30K). 

AVGV20 > 300000

The second formula about minvol 20 > 200k should be:

MINV20 > 200000

And the third one, 14 Period ATR > 0.30 can be writtes as follows in TC2000 v17.

ATR14 > .3

So if you wanted to combine them all into a singel formula, you would get the following.

ATR14 > .3 AND AVGV20 > 300000 AND MINV20 > 200000

I am trying to find stocks with today's volume 2.5 times greater than the average volume in the past 20 days. Can you help?

Please try the following condition formula.

V >2.5 * AVGV20.1
