Scan for all time highs

How do I scan for stocks that made new all time highs some # of days [10 for example] ago? Thank you


  • Have you tried the "All Time High" setting in the drop down menu. Then run the scan starting 10 trading days ago.

  • Hi Gord;
    Thank you for the quick response.
    I tried that but it turned nothing up for yesterday. I know that there were ath's yesterday, LQD & LAKE and others...

    This is what I have :

    Starting 1 trading days before the last intraday update [14 Oct, 9:53am] show me the symbols that meet the following critera

    [type = stock] AND [Daily SMA(20,Daily Volume) > 140000]
    and [All Time High < high]
    and [country is US]

    It will show me new ATHs for today, [27] but not any from previous days

    a quirk in the system?...
  • I'm going to answer your question a little differently. It looks like you want to find new highs from a week ago, so you can see if there's been a pullback.

    If that is the case, here's what I do -- look for a stock that is within 2% of the 52-week high. It has often made a recent high, then pulled back to support.

    [type = stock] AND [country = US]
    AND [Daily SMA(20,Daily Volume) > 300000]
    AND [Close > 5] AND [Close < 50]
    AND [Daily High > Yesterday's Daily MAX(253,Daily High)*.98]
    AND [SMA(10) > SMA(20)]
    AND [SMA(20) > SMA(50)]
    AND [SMA(50) > SMA(100)]
    AND [SMA(100) > SMA(200)]

    You can adjust the volume and the stock prices as needed.
    Hope this helps.
