Thanks so much. You guys are phenomenal.

Thanks again, Bruce. For some reason, I'm not finding that EasyScan offers the opportunity to scan by BB width or or the 60 DMA. That is, when I click on "add new conditions" I get roster of maybe fifty or so conditions, none of which involves BB and only one of which involves a moving average (10 day crossing 200 day). Clearly, I'm missing something here (besides what's missing between my ears, that is).
On the PCF front, I'm still trying to parse this out. Let's say I wanted to screen for stocks using a 5 period, one standard deviation BB in a Boolean formula, again with price vs. 60 sma (above 60 for longs, below 60 for shorts). Am I correct in assuming the PCF would then be...
longs
(CAVGC5+1*SQR((C^2 +C1^2 +C2^2 +C3^2 +C4^2 +C5^25*AVGC5^2)/4))/3/SQR((C^2 +C1^2 +C2^2 +C3^2 +C4^2 +C5^25*AVGC5^2)/4)>.7 C/AVGC60
shorts
CAVGC5+1*SQR((C^2 +C1^2 +C2^2 +C3^2 +C4^2 +C5^25*AVGC5^2)/4))/3/SQR((C^2 +C1^2 +C2^2 +C3^2 +C4^2 +C5^25*AVGC5^2)/4)>.3 C/AVGC60
?
If this is correct, what does the /3/ in the middle of the formular refer to? And is there some kind of comprehensive, systematic tutorial to be found on creating PCFs?
You're a patient man, sir, and I'm grateful.

Thanks so much, Bruce! Now I'm trying to graduate to something a little more complex. Might you be able to offer some guidance here as well?
Here's what I'm trying to do. I want to set Bollinger Bands with 18 periods and 1.5 standard deviations. Then I want to screen for stocks using the following criteria...
long for stocks over the 60 dma, where the following formula
(closing price  lower bollinger band value)/(upper bollinger band value  lower bollinger band value) > 0.7
short for stocks under the 60 dma where the exact same formula is < .03
Is this "pcfable"? Might you be able to offer a few pointers here? This is just frying my simple little brain as I get used to the pcf conventions
Thanks (again) so much for your help.

Hi  I'm afraid I'm asking a really basic question here. I wish to create a PCF identifying equities trading at a 20 period RSI of less than 40. I'm using a wilder smoothedRSI here, so am I correct in assuming that the formula would be...
[RSI formula]<40C?
or would it be
C[RSI formula]<40?
or do I not need a "C" at all.
I'm so confused...
Thanks for your help.

Thank youthank youthank you!!!

Hi  Thanks for all your work on this...and now, in the spirit of "never enough" ()would it be possible to get a formula for a 20 period RSI????
Sheepishly and gratefully submitted...

Hi  I'm trying to write some pcfs that involve wildersmoothed rsi. I'm told however that the pcfs cannot use wilder's smoothing in their calculations. Is that correct? If so, are you aware of any ways around this?
Thanks much for your help.
