Looking to create stock screener

Hello Q community,

I am new to python & quantopian, although i have been reading around & must say i am impressed by the diversity of ideas around here. Keep it up!

Currently i am doing some manual trading based on mostly technical factors. Sometimes i feel a bit overwhelemed when it comes to futures/ stocks to know what names i should be keeping an eye on & frankly i don't enjoy (price) screen time much. What i am looking to create is a simple screener which will list the tickers of futures/ stocks that fulfill certain criteria. I have a feeling this would probably work using the Pipeline.

For example how would i go about attaining a list of tickers which fulfil the following criteria:
1. RSI of over 50 for the last week
2. 7 day fast moving average > 30 day slow MA

Any ideas/tips or things to read would be massively appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

Hi Florian,

Feel free to check out this example notebook I wrote for you that demonstrates proper usage of a pipeline screen. It uses the criteria you mentioned and outputs a list of securities from January-August 2017.
Reading through the pipeline tutorial which incorporates information on factors, filters, and screens can really help as well! Let me know if you have any other questions.
