Reading the SF manual, as best as I can tell, "within the last" applies only to the following statements:

"crossed above/below"
"gained/lost more than"
"reached a new high/low"

How to fix your statement? Two ways:

CCI(20) crossed below -200 within the last 6 days
draw CCI(20) line at -200

set{var1,count(CCI(20) < -200,6)}
var1 > 0
draw CCI(20) line at -200

The issue with using the close and the volume of the same day is it doesn't take into account the price swings throughout that day. It only takes the close price. This is not a problem if the day's trading was tight, but if it was wide, the indicator becomes less relevant.

Using a moving average of 10 days attempts to mitigate that somewhat.

@Nobody, just start a new topic. Only time you necro old posts is if it's directly related to the original subject and even then it may be better to start a new topic and just link to the old post as reference.

Metals are going down because everyone is getting margin called. They have to liquidate their gold, silver, et. al. assets to cover their margin calls. I expect metals to recover once the stock sell-off dies off, but who the heck knows in this climate.

“In the near-term, gold could see further downside because of the need to meet margin calls across other markets and if investors are preferring to move to cash and reduce risk exposure across the board.”

You'll have to check the accuracy, but I believe this draws a line 2SD above the current close and 2SD below the current close as calculated over the last 10 days.

The variable "lower" would be your stop loss.

market not otcbb
average volume(30) > 1234567
close > 10
ema(9) > ema(50)

set{2SD,Standard Deviation(10)*2}

draw price line at upper
draw price line at lower

add column 2SD
add column upper
add column lower

Contrarian Investing is a thing for this exact reason.

Cheese, I'm not an authority on Contrary Opinion (CO). I just learned about it in Weinstein's book where he dedicated several pages to it. In a nutshell, he said when the media is all in agreement and shouting about how great/horrible the market is, that is when you need to perk up. He suggests using multiple "market indicators". These include Advance-Decline Lines, New High-New Low Figures, and "As GM Goes".

"As GM Goes" during the time the book was written was the theory that whatever GM was doing, the market follows. GM was the darling stock in that day and used the "four-month rule." It states that if GM doesn't make a new high (or low) in four months, the current trend is reversing. I updated "As GM Goes" to "As FAANG Goes" as these are the darlings of today's market. Yes, I wrote a filter for it:

chart-time is 4 months

draw wma(150)
set{var1,high 4-month high}
set{4MH,count(high > var1 1 day ago,84)}
add column 4MH
add column var1
draw high 4-month high

set{var2,low 4-month low}
set{4ML,count(low < var2 1 day ago,84)}
add column 4ML
add column var2
draw low 4-month low

Contrary Opinion is more of an art, and I'm a horrible artist so it's not something I can put to use accurately. Just another tool for the toolbox. To your question, looking at these market indicators, I don't see any of them hinting at a reversal of the current bullish trend. The media is also split on whether we're on the brink of a big crash or the prevailing trend will continue. When they all start agreeing, though, is when we worry.
