Doing simple math in a scan?
Is there a way to do basic math in a scan?
Lets say I want to eliminate stocks with big wicks and tails.
This is how I think I would do it in pseudo-code
Wick = High - Close
Tail = Close - Low
Body = Close – Open
Body = (abs) Body [Absolute Value]
Good-Stock = (($Wick + $Tail) <= (Body x 0.20))
Can this, or anything like it, be done in a scan?
