Hello! I've been trying to make a TOS script which scans for stocks that close in between the 30 and 50ma without the price crossing the 50 ma. The price can also touch the 30ma. The moving averages cannot cross and the 30ma must be less than the 50ma which must be less than the 100ma. Here is my script so far. I thought it was right but every time I run it I get literally all the stocks in the market.

def ma30 = SimpleMovingAvg(close,30);
def ma50 = SimpleMovingAvg(close,50);
def ma100 = SimpleMovingAvg(close,100);
def trend = ma30 < ma50 < ma100;
def target = ma30 <= close < ma50;
plot scan = target;

I will also be doing one in reverse where the 30ma is greater than the 50ma which is greater than the 100ma.

TOS typically doesn't like multiple conditions strung together. So if you separate out your conditions with "AND" it should work.

 
Code
def ma30 = SimpleMovingAvg(close,30);
def ma50 = SimpleMovingAvg(close,50);
def ma100 = SimpleMovingAvg(close,100);
def trend = ma30 < ma50 and ma50 < ma100 and ma30 < ma100;
def target = ma30 <= close and close < ma50;
plot scan = target;

plot scan = Close >= SimpleMovingAvg( close, 30 ) && Close < SimpleMovingAvg( close, 50 );
