Help with gap fill strategy
« on: December 27, 2017, 05:01:14 pm »
Just trying to set up simple gap fill alert for a specific watch list. I have everything worked out expect how to filter out only if the stock opens above the previous days close. I'm getting alerts were it opens below and trades above then triggers when moving back down through the pClose. I'm using the "crossed below close" set to 60sec. Setting the seconds longer does not work as it starts eliminating the opening gap fills. Tried using "Position of open" within 50% or higher of pDay range but that did not help much. Any ideas appreciated. Summary:

 - Alerts only if open above previous days close and then gap fill
- Alerts only for the 1st gap fill

thanks
