 stockfetcher980 postsmsg #112556 4/1/2013 11:12:14 AMThe new DATE([PERIOD],[INDICATOR]) function allows you to access past values of measures in new ways. In function, this feature works similar to the "days ago" phrase, as it modifies the desired measure; however, you can provide specific instructions on the actual offset of the days ago phrase. The example below returns matches that are more than 10% above the opening price for the year. Fetcher[close is more than 10% above DATE(YEARSTART,open)] To find stocks that are below the RSI(10) from the start of the month: Fetcher[RSI(10) is below DATE(MONTHSTART,RSI(10))] Valid options for the "PERIOD" argument: YEARSTART: Initial value of the indicator for the year YEAREND: Last value of the indicator for the prior year MONTHSTART: Initial value of the indicator for the month MONTHEND: Final value of the indicator for the prior month MONDAY - FRIDAY: Value from the specific day of the week YYYYMMDD: Specfic date Here are a couple more examples: Fetcher[/* Plot the return based on the start of the year */ set{var1, DATE(YEARSTART,open)} set{diff, close - var1} and draw var1 on plot price and draw diff and plottype{diff,zerobar} and close is above 3.00 and average volume(30) is above 250000] Fetcher[/* Plot the return based on the start of the month */ set{var1, DATE(MONTHSTART,open)} set{diff, close - var1} and draw var1 on plot price and draw diff and plottype{diff,zerobar} and close is above 3.00 and average volume(30) is above 250000] Fetcher[/* Reference a specific date */ set{var1,DATE(20130211,close)} draw var1 on plot price and close is above 4.00 and average volume(30) is above 250000] Fetcher[/* Stocks more than 10% below last year close */ set{var1, DATE(YEAREND,close)} draw var1 on plot price and close is more than 10% below var1 and close is above 4.00 and average volume(30) is above 250000] Fetcher[/* Price last FRIDAY gained more than 10% */ set{change,close - open} set{ratio, change / open} set{pct, ratio * 100.0 } set{var1, DATE(FRIDAY,pct)} show stocks where var1 is above 10 and close is above 3.00 and average volume(30) is above 250000] Please let us know if you run into any issues with this new function, have any question about how it works, or would like to see any modifications.

Edit: that is if I can get this to work Fetcher[ nasdaq 100 set{mh,date(monthend,high 21 day high)} set{ml,date(monthend,low 21 day low)} set{cl,date(monthend,close)} set{mp1,cl + mh} set{mp,mp1 + ml} set{mpp,mp/3} set{mr1x,mpp*2} set{mr1,mr1x - ml} set{ms1,mr1x - mh} set{mrange,mh - ml} set{mr2,mpp + mrange} set{ms2,mpp - mrange} set{m2r,mrange*2} set{mr3,mpp + m2r} set{ms3,mpp - m2r} draw price line at mr2 draw price line at ms1 draw price line at ms2 draw price line at mr1 ] This should give me lines at monthly pivot lines. It does not however, although check syntax OK's everything. Is there a way to code this? stockfetcher980 postsmsg #112566 4/1/2013 4:51:24 PMIf possible, can you provide an example where the numbers do not appear to match up with the syntax in your filter? For example, if you can supply a symbol and expected value, that would help us track where there may be any issues. Thanks! StockFetcher Support mahkoh1,065 postsmsg #112567- Ignore mahkoh 4/1/2013 4:57:52 PMFor some reason it didn't work when I made the changes in my original filter that I had to adjust for lookback days daily: set{mh,high 21 day high 20 days ago} set{ml,low 21 day low 20 days ago} set{cl,close 20 days ago} to set{mh,date(monthend,high 21 day high)} set{ml,date(monthend,low 21 day low)} set{cl,date(monthend,close)} but clicking my posted filter above works perfect. +1000 it is, thanks! olbn4 postsmsg #113880- Ignore olbn 6/3/2013 6:19:50 PMIs it possible to add for Optionable stocks to analyze from the Option Expiration Month (Generally 3rd Friday of the Month)? dangreene229 postsmsg #156922- Ignore dangreene 6/4/2021 9:27:49 PMPOP to TOP styliten280 postsmsg #159584- Ignore stylitenmodified 9/11/2022 9:18:47 PMHere is another way of drawing RELATIVE reference price lines by month based on the entire price range from low 1 month low to high 1 month high: The following assumes 21 days in an average trading month; feel free to adjust [21] days to 15 or 30 or as you see fit. A volatile prior month will automatically make the reference price lines for the following month more widely spread out; conversely, a quiet month (in consolidation) will make reference price lines meshed up together. The underlying logic being what if the price trend in the immediate prior month were to continue exactly as it has been? As a result any price behavior pattern deviated from prior month will stand out very quickly to catch one's attention. Because these relative reference price lines stay constant for the entire duration of the current month, there is no moving averages or other curves to distract one's eyes. Fetcher[dow 30 chart-time is 40 days set{ref10, date(monthend, day position(0.00, 21))} set{ref11, date(monthend, day position(0.01, 21))} set{ref12, date(monthend, day position(0.02, 21))} set{ref20, date(monthend, day position(0.25, 21))} set{ref30, date(monthend, day position(0.50, 21))} set{ref31, date(monthend, day position(0.49, 21))} set{ref32, date(monthend, day position(0.51, 21))} set{ref40, date(monthend, day position(0.75, 21))} set{ref50, date(monthend, day position(1.00, 21))} set{ref51, date(monthend, day position(0.99, 21))} set{ref52, date(monthend, day position(0.98, 21))} and draw ref10 on plot price and draw ref11 on plot price and draw ref12 on plot price and draw ref20 on plot price and draw ref30 on plot price and draw ref31 on plot price and draw ref32 on plot price and draw ref40 on plot price and draw ref50 on plot price and draw ref51 on plot price and draw ref52 on plot price] It can capture price shifts/reversals at bottom and tops better those those based off on "moving averages" or linear regression intercepts alone.
