Hello, how do I retrieve the non-zero minimum low over a time period if my look back period includes the days where the stock price was zero in stockfetcher? I also don't want to manually change the look back period to begin on or after the IPO date. I would like the minlo variable to show $19.78 instead of $0 in the example below:

apply to symlist(MQ)
set{minlo, low 253 day low}
draw minlo
add column minlo

add column low 12 week low
draw low 12 week low

Might be because MQ hasn't been trading for 253 days . Maybe the above code might help with other stocks .

draw low 253 day low
add column low 253 day low

Thanks Mac.

I am seeking a solution that allows me to scan up to 253 days, but only captures the minimum non-zero value. I have thought about searching 253, 120, 60, 30 days at the same time, and take the first non-zero value, but i am not sure how to do that.

This is not a bullet-proof solution. This finds the second smallest value of three values.

Here are the caveats:
  • IPO must be older than 50 days. If not, the second smallest will also be 0.
  • IPO must be younger than 150 days. If not, the first smallest is the true smallest, but you will get the second smallest anyway.


    apply to symlist(MQ,coin)
    set{min50, low 50 day low}
    set{min100, low 100 day low}
    set{min150, low 150 day low}



    set{sum1,min50 + min100}
    set{sum2,sum1 + min150}
    set{sum3,sum2 - low2}
    set{sum4,sum3 - high2}

    add column min150 {Fist smallest value}
    add column sum4 {Second smallest value}

    Thanks Xarlor. I appreciate you help.

    I was hoping there was an easier and cleaner way to finding a non-zero min.

    Does anyone know how to get this working? Substituting the number of Days in the MinLowOverDays set doesn't seem to be working.

    apply to symlist(MQ,coin, RBLX)

    set{CntDaysPriceIs0, count(low equal 0,1)}
    draw CntDaysPriceIs0
    set{DaysAfter0, days(CntDaysPriceIs0 equals 1, 252)}
    add column DaysAfter0
    set{MinLowOverDays, low DaysAfter0 day low}
    add column MinLowOverDays

    I am trying to get the min low for stocks that IPO'd over the past year.
