Min, Max, and Negative Numbers
This page helps you understand the way we use negative numbers in our filters
The basic idea is simple. Saying that a stock is down 5% in the last ten minutes is the same as saying that the stock is up -5% in last ten minutes. By using negative numbers we can have half as many filters.
Things get tricky when you start mixing min and max with negative numbers. Remember, -3 is less than -2! If you are not sure, enter the values below the same way that you would enter them into our config page. Read the English description and look at the picture to make sure the computer interprets your settings the way you intended.
Meaning of the “Earnings Date” filter
Show me stocks where: Earnings will be reported between 1 and 2 day(s) after 12:00:01 am this morning.
