Price Drop after Ex-Dividend Date

XATPER

I'm trying to find stocks that have dropped more than the dividend payment (on the Ex-Date or after) I've come close with :

input days = 1;
plot scan = GetDividend() from days bars ago and close is less than close + GetDividend() from days bars ago;

but some of the results don't meet the desired "price drop".
Any help would be appreciated.

Try this: change less than close to less than close[1]

input days = 1;
plot scan = GetDividend() from days bars ago and close is less than close[1]+ GetDividend() from days bars ago;

Try this: change less than close to less than close[1]

input days = 1;
plot scan = GetDividend() from days bars ago and close is less than close[1]+ GetDividend() from days bars ago;
Thanks, that helped... not perfect, but better than what I had. I appreciate the help.

when i make a column study, i start with a lower, to experiment with.
i think this lower study will work as a scan.

this will show a yellow bubble when a dividend happens.
the next bar will be cyan if the price drop is more than the dividend.

change this to = no , to turn off bubbles
input bubble = yes;

Code:
``````#dividend_drop
