 jimdandy11 postsmsg #160479- Ignore jimdandy 8/4/2023 10:04:27 AMHello all, I need help in terms of the following condition I want to implement: Parabolic SAR(0.02,0.2) below price for 1 day set{countPSARdec, days(Parabolic SAR(0.02,0.2) 2 days ago above price,5)} What I try to achieve is: all stocks where Parabolic SAR is below the close yesterday and the 5 days before (so 2 to 6 days before today) Parabolic SAR was above the close. The second phrase (set....) seems not be right. At least the result showing different things. My second question is: if I am not wrong the phrase "close has not been increasing for 5 days" does not work. Can you help me with an alternative? Thank you very much Heiko xarlor565 postsmsg #160480- Ignore xarlor 8/4/2023 10:51:45 AM Fetcher[ Parabolic SAR(0.02,0.2) 1 day ago < close 1 day ago for last 6 days Parabolic SAR(0.02,0.2) > close ] On your second question, we need more detail. Do you mean close has been in a decline for 5 days? Choppy during the last 5 days (sometimes close is above yesterday, other times below)? It can be increasing 4 out of 5 days, but 1 of those days has to be decreasing? jimdandy11 postsmsg #160481- Ignore jimdandy 8/4/2023 11:19:30 AMThanks Xarlor! Actually it only should not increase above the close 5 days ago. But it does not matter if it ends up at the same closing than 5 days ago (went down and up again) or decreased for 5 days or any other possibility. xarlor565 postsmsg #160483- Ignore xarlor 8/4/2023 12:06:33 PMThe definitive answer is: Fetcher[ set{c5d,close 5 days ago} close < c5d close 1 day ago < c5d close 2 days ago < c5d close 3 days ago < c5d close 4 days ago < c5d draw price line at c5d ] Theoretically, this should work, but StockFetcher wonkiness is recalculating c5d as 5 days prior to whichever day it's checking. One would assume c5d stays constant as 5 days prior to today. See XLU, GNS, or GOLD as examples. Same problem if you use count. Fetcher[ set{c5d,close 5 days ago} close < c5d for last 5 days draw price line at c5d ] jimdandy11 postsmsg #160488- Ignore jimdandy 8/4/2023 4:42:54 PMThanks xarlor!
