Perhaps, ranking your portfolio based on on a percentage price movement together with a technical analysis indicator and take a position on the best (or worst) instruments on a bar by bar basis? Well, with Seer you can.

A Filter is a special function that runs a block of code against all instruments in the current systems portfolio or against the instruments in the passed Set. Once a Filter has been executed, the function returns a Set.

A Set is simply a collection of instruments with each instrument having an associated value. This value allows the set to be sorted and ranked.
