I am trying to create a "stop loss" column and want the value to be either the low of the day or $1, whichever is lower.

set{stop,math.minimum(low,1)} this does not seem to work. How can I get this function to provide me the right value for stop?

Thanks Kevin but that errored out with a syntax error. It should have worked but did not.
