I am looking at setting up a scan where I can find stocks that have lossed 50% or greater of the high value of this year.  So if in February a stock was at $100 and now is at $50 or less.  I am not sure how to do this.

Is there a way to set up a scan or PCF to find stock price candels that have very little or no shadows?  I believe they are also called wicks and tails.

Hi Bruce


Thanks very much for your help.  This is working great.


Have a great evening

Sorry.  Here is some more info.


I want the volume from two days ago to be above the 24EMA and th volume yesterday to be be above the volume of 2 days ago and yesterdays volume above the 24EMA also.

I would actualy do the scan at the end of the day to determine what stocks had increasing volume and above th EMA for the last 2 days

Hope that makes sense.

I am wanting to write a pcf on volume and seem to be missing something.  I want to set up a pcf and scan so I can find stocks where the volume for the last 2 days increasing and above a MA of 24.




Topic: scanning for gaps
Posted: Wednesday, September 11, 2013 3:26:59 PM



I am looking to write a formula to find gaps.  Specifically I am looking for two types.  When a stock has been in a downtrend and there is a doji or several dojis in a row then there is a bullsih candle that gaps up after the doji.  The gap can be very small or large. 


The second is when there is an uptrend and then a doji or several dojis and then a gap down on the next candle.


I am looking at end of day charts mostly and can refine it if I decide to do a shorter or longer timeframe.


Thanks for your help.

How would I write a PCF for the following.  IF I want to know if the total volume for the day (the volume bar) is greater than the candlestick price bar for the same day.  I would want to be able to vary this and sometimes use it for 1 day and sometimes use it for 5 days.
