Hey everyone, total newbie here. I am amazed at how good many of you are at figuring out how to set up these filters. I did not find the user guide all that user friendly but I guess I am not so smart! Anyway, this is probably not possibly but I am wondering if someone would know how to put this scenario in a filter:

Monday, the price of a stock does xyz and there is my trigger. I want to buy the stock on the following day if it goes over the high of the first 30 minute of this trading day. Possible? If not, I can settle for a command that puts my entry at or just over the previous day's open. Thanks for any help!

Cannot do intraday. However, you can set a limit price for backtesting relative to a specific end-of-day value (e.g., yesterday's high plus a few cents).

Kevin, thanks for your reply. Can you or someone tell how to make that command? Buying the day after the trigger day's high plus a few cents (for a backtest). Thanks a million.
