 v_up_5 == v_up_1

That would result in a 1 if the current 5 minute volume is equal to the current 1 minute volume.  I have found it works about 90% of the time in finding stocks coming out of a halt, which are tricky to trade (especially automated).

This can also weed out stocks trading very thin, once again tricky to trade (especially automated).

Enjoy

Yes there are alerts, but if you are automating a strategy, you might want to know NOT to alert a different alert when coming OUT of one.
