# x \$ Movement

Does anyone know of an indicator that will allow me to add a criteria in my scans to look for stocks that move X amount of dollars within X amount of days?

Solution
@C_Wilson here's something that might work -
Code:
``````input barsback = 10; # the past price bar you want to measure from
input dollar_amount = 20; # amount of dollar movement
plot scan = close - close[barsback] > dollar_amount;``````

Code:
``````input barsback = 10; # the past price bar you want to measure from
input dollar_amount = 20; # amount of dollar movement
plot scan = close - close[barsback] > dollar_amount;``````

This is close to what I am looking for. More on my end of not properly explaining,
This will look back X amount of days and show a price movement of X amount of dollars..

Example :
input barsback = 5; # the past price bar you want to measure from
input dollar_amount = 10; # amount of dollar movement
plot scan = close - close[barsback] > dollar_amount;

Would show that ABC open at \$100 and closed Friday at \$110
This could be from making \$5 Monday and \$1.25 Tuesday - Friday each day.

I am wanting to find a stock that trades X amount of dollars a day on average over X amount of days

Example: X amount of dollars is \$2 and X amount of days is 5 days
ABC open Monday at \$100 and closed at \$102.50
Tuesday at \$102.50 and closed \$99.75
Wednesday at \$99.75 and closed \$101.75
Thursday at \$101.75 and closed at \$103.80
Friday at \$103.80 and closed at \$101.00
