Hi
No idea how to do this? How would you write a scan that looks for stocks that have broken trend and are now basing / making right side?
thank you
David

Dougal:

While this is non-directional, you might just want to look for stocks in a squeeze.

Try this and see if it fills the bill:

SMA(Typical(),20)+SMA(ATR(1),20)*1.5 > BOL_UPPER(20,2) AND SMA(Typical(),20)-SMA(ATR(1),20)*1.5 < BOL_LOWER(20,2)

Dougal:

Wanting to reply to your request quickly I just grabbed an old scan from my MarketScans.

This might not produce any different results but it substitutes the close for the Typical() price;

SMA(C,20)+SMA(ATR(1),20)*1.5 > BOL_UPPER(20,2) AND SMA(C,20)-SMA(ATR(1),20)*1.5 < BOL_LOWER(20,2)

And I am glad to hear it helps!
