Why does the volume clause appears not to work as intended?
//Stock scan - Rank by last X days X= 6,22, etc. For some unknown reason, volume >150000 does not work very well, tried many things
[country is us] and
[Daily SMA(10,Daily Close) > 2] AND [Daily SMA(10,Daily close)<=12] and
[Daily EMA(30,Daily Volume) > 150000]
rank by [pctchange(22, CLOSE)]
//end of scan
As you can see, this is a very simple scan, but I cannot get the volume clause to work as intended, almost a third of the stocks returned are less than 150 k in volume, some stocks have volumes of 10k, 30K, etc. I know there is some slippage, but a third is too much. Have tried changing the parameters of the volume clause to no avail. Thanks
