Tom and crew at SF:

Would it be possible to code a DATE function into SF? For example, it might look like

date(variable or indicator of interest, DATE)

This way, one could reference the closing price for a specific date, the RSI or MACD, whatever indicator you like, or even a user-defined variable. Since it is clear that SF can already determine these for backtesting, why not see if you can meet a chronic issue here and give us a function that let's us call a value from a specific date?

Thanks,

Kevin

Trying to build a monthly fitler for an indicator. Why won't stockfetcher take this code? (specifically nca1 / tca1)

Fetcher[
chart-display weekly
chart-type candle
set{tca2, 1}
set{nca2, 2}

set{chg1, weekly close - weekly close 4 days ago}
set{nca1, nca2 + 1 / 2 * chg1}
set{abs1, abs(chg1)}
set{tca1, tca2 + 1 / 2 * [ abs1 - tca2 ]}
set{cr1, nca1 / tca1}
set{RS, 50 * [ cr1+1 ]}

and add column rs
]

Any ideas? JT

You probably should have posted this in a new thread. However, the reason is that you are attempting to do more than one mathematical operation in several set{} statements. You can only do one per set{} statement.

SF Crew:

2 days is probably long enough for you to figure out if this can be done. If you can do it, great. If not, say so.

We apologize for the delay in responding to your feature suggestion. In the future, for quicker responses we strongly recommend emailing support directly at support@stockfetcher.com. Unfortunately, we are not always able to fully follow all threads in the StockFetcher forums.

Concerning the feature you are looking for, we will certainly look into adding that with a future update. Adding a direct date reference within a filter is a different technical matter than backtesting, as backtesting is effectively re-running a filter using "date offset" (which does allow for direct date references.)

We will be sure to post an update if we are able to make any progress with this feature or have any questions for you.

Could the Stockfetcher development team implement the following features?

Original feature:
date offset 7
Requested feature:
date offset 11/10/2011

Original feature:
“X days ago”
Requested feature:
“On day 11/10/2011”
Example:
Close is above open 7 days ago
Close is above open on day 11/10/2011

This would be very helpful!

JT
