I can see how we can get alerts telling us when a stock has moved e.g 3% from the previous day's close but is there an alert that can tell me when a stock has moved e.g. 3% from the OPEN?  For day trading, and for stocks that have gapped up or down, what we want to do is capture the stocks that move a lot after their open since we can not take advantage of the gap move that might happen at the open.

We have a filter that sets up all the opportunities to be at least 'x' or 3% from the Open.  Then you can add the % Up alert (which is based on the close but the filter we're using makes sure its still up from the Open) or any other directional alert.  Here's what I found:

Thank you, I must be brain dead because I did not see that "up or down from the open" filter.
