Gaps
« on: February 13, 2014, 05:01:39 PM »
Hello TI team

Is that possible to create one-step scan/process in TI  “which will alert when stock trades above or below recent gap highs/lows (most likely earnings gap - short term swing trades) I’m currently monitoring this in several steps and sometimes I do miss an entry, I went thru all filters and alerts and not seeing the possibility but decided to ask cause might miss something


Examples
NFLX –  Gap up on 1/23 Break above Earnings Gap Day highs on 1/28
KORS -  Gap up on 2/4   Break above Earnings Gap Day highs on 2/7

Hi .. not that I am aware of.  You might like to use this custom formula that shows how far away a stock is from the next high or low - set the minimum to 3 and you will start to see gap situations.

abs([=p] - [Price])

To create a Custom Formula, click on this link:

Click the Create New tab and paste the above formula in the description box and then Save.  The formula will now be part of your filter list - find it and select the minimum value you want to the next high or low.

Cheers
