I need help with a scan. Need to identify stocks that are up 10% from previous day's close in compare to current day's high. This is going to be a dynamic scan used with other study and therefore need % difference between previous day close (4:00 PM) and current day high (including premarket).

If someone can please look into this request

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi PAYtience,

I think this should work. The default is a 10% increase over the previous close, but the number can be adjusted in the inputs.

I did a stock scan with minimum price \$10, minimum volume 100,000 shares and CloseIsUp set to true and got 10 hits tonight. Example chart for one of the hits is shown below.

Code:
``````# CloseIsUpXPct
#...``````

Hi @traderLK,

Thanks for the reply, was looking for an intraday scan (anything with HOD > 10%) to use it on top of my signals...

I was able to code it out as a scan -

Code:
``````# bars after close to next day open
def start = 0930;
def end = 1600;
def p1 = (secondsfromTime(end) >= 0 and secondstillTime(2359) > 0);
def p2 = (secondsfromTime(0000) >= 0 and secondstillTime(start) > 0);
def pretime = p1 or p2;

def prehi = if !pretime[1] and pretime then high
else if pretime and high > prehi[1] then high
else prehi[1];

def prelo = if !pretime[1] and pretime then low
else if pretime and low < prelo[1] then low
else prelo[1];

def high_inc_pre = if IsNaN(dayhi) then prehi else if prehi > dayhi then prehi else dayhi;
#def low_inc_pre = if IsNaN(daylo) then prelo else if prelo < daylo then prelo else daylo;

def PC = close(period = AggregationPeriod.DAY)[1];
def CH = high_inc_pre;
#def CL = low_inc_pre;
def PctChangehigh = (CH - PC) / PC;
#def PctChangelow = (CL - PC) / PC;

plot scan = if PctChangehigh > 0.10 then 1 else 0;``````
