Has anyone got any tricks to get over the 100 day limitation of the count() function? i.e. to count further in the past?

/* performance display */

set{chg100, count(day change > 10, 100) }

add column chg100 {%chg(0-100)}
add column chg100 100 days ago {%chg (100-200)}
add column chg100 200 days ago {%chg (200-300)}

market is nasdaq 100

sort column 6 descending

A quick fix to the overarching problem of 100 day limitation is to nest one set statement that utilizes the "days ago" modifier within another set statement. First, you define the length of period over and above the 100 day limit and then plug that into the count(). For example, suppose you want to reach back to 120 days.

set{back20, close 20 days ago}
set{back120, count(back20 crossed above MA(20),100)}
back120 above 0
