I would like to create a scan that shows stocks that in the past 20 days, 75% (15 days), were up bar days (close > open).

Could anyone help to show me how this is accomplished?

Sure. This uses a nifty "trick" ... you sum up the tests for each day and compare them to the minimum total requirement. Each test that is true becomes a -1, while false is 0 ....

15 < -Sum( (C > O), 20)

Minus sign and paren's are important.

Jim

Shouldn't this be either of the below statements

15 <= -Sum( (C > O), 20)

14 < -Sum( (C > O), 20)
