Does anyone have a script that would allow me to do an On Balance Volume scan that would find stocks where the OBV indicator reached a 20 bar high. Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me.

Thank you for your reply but that link doesn't give me the option to scan for stocks where the on balance volume indicator is making a new 20 bar high.

It scans for current OBV value >= last 20 period OBV values. Isn't that what you wanted?

Thanks again for your reply but I need the script for finding stocks that have an OBV making a 20 bar high.

For example if I wanted to find stocks that are making a 20 bar high in volume I would write the following:
(volume) > highest(volume, 20)


My question is how do I write that for the "on balance volume indicator".

Thanks

Try that -

OnBalanceVolume() is greater than or equal to Highest("data" = OnBalanceVolume(), "length" = 20)
