I use the following for finding a 5 day low. Scan finds the 5 day low 2 days ago and 1 day ago the low is higher than the 5 day low.

Now I want to do the same thing on a weekly chart, but nothing is working correctly. I want the 5 week low 2 weeks ago and then last week to have a higher low.

Here is the daily scan setup:

Fetcher[
market is not otcbb
market is not etf
price > 3
avgvol(30) > 5000000
optionable

draw low 5 day low
set{var1, count (low above low 5 day low,1)}
draw var1 > .99
and var1 1 day ago < .99
]



The weekly chart doesn't give me the same setup:
Fetcher[
market is not otcbb
market is not etf
price > 3
avgvol(30) > 5000000
optionable
chart-display is weekly

draw low 5 week low
set{var1, count (low above low 5 week low,1)}
draw var1 > .99
and var1 1 week ago < .99
]

I left out a couple "weekly" in the scan, so that may have been the problem.

Some charts still don't look just right, so I will keep checking.

Fetcher[
market is not otcbb
market is not etf
price > 3
chart-display is weekly

draw weekly low 5 week low
set{var1, count (weekly low above low 5 week low,1)}
draw var1 > .99
and var1 1 week ago < .99
]

You found 2 of 3 weekly. Put in the third one and it works as you expect.

Trying to make weekly scans work right is like hunting shadows in the dark.

Fetcher[
market is not otcbb
market is not etf
price > 3
chart-display is weekly

draw weekly low 5 week low
set{var1, count (weekly low above weekly low 5 week low,1)}
draw var1 > .99
and var1 1 week ago < .99

Many of the charts look right, but still getting some like this one where it is showing the chart several weeks late. Back to the drawing board.

Thanks

These lines:

set{var1, count (weekly low above weekly low 5 week low,1)}
draw var1 > .99
and var1 1 week ago < .99

should pull up a chart when it has the first red / blue rectangle under the chart.
I included the vertical blue line when this stock should have been picked.

In the example above, it was 3 - 4 weeks prior that the rectangle shows up.

Maybe I am not explaining it well enough. In my first post above, the 5 day low scan pulls up stocks when the low is greater than the 5 day low and the previous day was the 5 day low. I now can look at pre-market to only get into the trades that will open above the close on the charts shown in the scan.

I am trying to do that on weekly charts now to find longer swing trades.

So in the example chart below. I want to run this on the weekends. I need last week to be a higher low than the previous week. That previous week needs to be making a new low. In pre-market on Monday I can only look for those where open Monday will be above the close of Friday.

So I need the chart to show on the scan when the weekly low is higher after a weekly downtrend.

Maybe this would just be easier trying to do it with daily charts?

In that case, I would have written it like this:

Fetcher[
market is not otcbb
market is not etf
price > 3

low > low 1 week ago
set{5wl,weekly low 5 week low}
draw 5wl on plot price
low 1 week ago equals 5wl

chart-display is weekly

That's looking better, but still getting some like this where the low is below low 1 week ago.

This chart is from Monday as it needs to be run on the weekend.
