150 SMA Scan Help


New member
Hey there...I'm attempting to capture the crest of 150 SMA's as stocks move from Stage 2 into Stage 3.

I would post some photos but imgur isn't loading today for some reason...

Let's use PTON as the first example...there's a huge stage 2 runup but in late April/early May of 2021, the 150 SMA starts to crest and go sideways. This lets me know there's a potential for a big selloff if the stock stays in stage 3 and moves to stage 4.

5/3/21 - 150 SMA is 123.95
5/4/21 - 150 SMA is 123.95
5/5/21 - 150 SMA is 123.83

In scan filters, I can compare today's 150 SMA to yesterday's. If I try to compare to compare 150 SMA from 2 bars ago to 150 SMA from 1 bars ago, I get an invalid statement...

Essentially, I hoping to view any stocks where -
150 SMA < 150 SMA from 1 Bar Ago AND
150 SMA from 1 Bar Ago is greater than or equal to 150 SMA from 2 Bars Ago...

Thanks for any help you can provide....
SimpleMovingAvg("length" = 150)."SMA" is less than SimpleMovingAvg("length" = 150)."SMA" from 1 bars ago
SimpleMovingAvg("length" = 150)."SMA" from 1 bars ago is greater than or equal to SimpleMovingAvg("length" = 150)."SMA" from 2 bars ago
