Sorry, this is probably very simple:  How would I write a pcf that says i'm looking for stocks that are gapping up a minimum of 2% from the prior days close?

 

C1 < O AND O >= 1.02 * C1

 

This is what i have but the names its producing often time are below the prior days close.  Thankyou for your help.

Gap up can mean a variety of things (even when specifying "from the close")..

If you mean the open is at least 2% above the prior close than you should already be getting than as part of your formula.

O >= 1.02 * C1

If you need some sort of unfilled gap where the low has never gone below that close.

O >= 1.02 * C1 AND L > C1

If price just needs to also currently be above that close.

O >= 1.02 * C1 AND C > C1

If price needs to be still be at least 2% above the previous close.

O >= 1.02 * C1 AND C >= 1.02 * C1

If the price of the current bar needs to have remained above the previous close the entire time.

L >= 1.02 * C1

If none of these does what you want, please provide additional clarification as to your requiements along with examples of symbols returning true which do not meet those requirements.
