Help getting my price parameters to work
I've entered my scan and it says I have no errors, but my results are turning up random results. Here's my issues:
I have my parameter set as '[yesterday's close = today's open]' and my scans are returning some stocks that meet that and some that don't. What do I need to do to get my results to show stocks that closed yesterday and opened today at the same price? Even +/- .02 would be acceptable, if those parameters are too tight or if I need to tweak my chart after seeing the results with the same price.
Also, I'm trying to set up this scan to show stocks between $1 and $35. I enter '[open > 1] and [close < 35]' and I'm still getting Apple and other stocks well over the $35 open/close range. I also have my volume set at '[volume > 175000]' and am still getting lots of stocks under that number, but it's easy enough to fix by sorting by high to low, so that one is not dire, but kind of frustrating since it's like my parameters don't really or only sometimes matter??
And finally, is it possible to see stocks that match my criteria for that day? For example, if a stock closed yesterday at $15 and opened today at $15, can I set up the scan to show my results today as of 1pm or anytime once the market has opened? Does the parameter shown below just have to be set correctly?:
Starting ___ trading days before the Option 1)Last Market Close (24 Aug) OR Option 2)Last Intraday Update (24 Aug, 3:21 AM)
(yes, I'm working on this scan at a crazy early hour and because I couldn't figure it out after numerous hours and attempts, I had to sign up for the answer network, make sure someone hadn't already asked the question, etc. lol)
