# % above open and % below the open

I know that I have asked this question or a similar question before but what I am using is not working properly and I can't figure out why. Without showing you want it is that I am using how do I ask for a percentage above the open and a percentage below the open? Lets use 2%.

close >= open * 1.02

close <= open * 0.98

You could use High or low as well. You could even use 1 days ago close or other. The Open part is pretty self explanatory based on your request.
• Thank you, that is not what I have been using. I do want my scan to include above or below the open.

If it's still not working correctly post those lines that you have for troubleshooting.
• Thanks, it seems to be working well so far.
• Can I ask if 1.0025 and .9975 are both asking for .25%? It looks like 2% is too much

1.25 is 25%
1.025 is 2.5%
1.0025 is 0.25%

So at a \$25 price

1.25 is 25% = \$6.25
1.025 is 2.5% = 63 cents
1.0025 is 0.25% = 6 cents
