    Nice scan. Thanks for sharing it!

    So what does it tell you whether %B hits .6 vs. .7 vs. .8, etc. ?
  • I find that the results are mostly near the Middle Bollinger Band with the rest scattered towards the Upper Bollinger Band or beyond.

    You might just want to add a Rank By as the last line for the %B. This would show all the stocks or whatever you are scanning for, to be listed in %B order.

    Rank by [%B(20,2)]

    will display your securities that pass the earlier criteria in Descending %B order and it will display the %B value in the results. So the 1's are at the top and the 0.1's are at the bottom.

    You can reverse the default display order by using Rank by [%B(20,2)] ascending
    and your results will be listed from low to high %B.

    Rank By is a great way to add additional data to the output.


    Jeremy du Plessis uses PnF chart moving averages. PnF chart moving averages are different than SharpChart moving averages. On StockCharts.com you can't scan using PnF chart moving averages. I find them extremely valuable for analysis on the PnF chart. Particularly the 1, 7, 9. I like KAMA's on the SharpChart.
  • Jeremy du Plessis was my inspiration even though the P&F style is not exactly the same. I will experiment with Rank By and likely post an update.
