Hi,
Have a question regarding the Rank function.I have no problem ranking "Strong" stocks

rank1=Comp(perf(close, 1),"Rank",1,close>2);

If I wanted to rank the weakest stocks in a screen or for a system,is this how you would approach it?I am curious if one is better off buying the strongest stocks vs the
weakest stocks.

rankweak=Comp(100-perf(close, 1),"Rank",1,close>2);
var1 = rank1 <= 10;
//The above trading rule returns the top 10 stocks that have the highest one-bar rate of return.

filter = var1;

AddColumn("PROC", perf(close, 1));
Addcolumn("rankweak",rank1);

thanks,

Allan

The correct solution is:

rank1=Comp(-perf(close, 1),"Rank",1,close>2);

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
