New user: I am trying use TRO's boolean workaround and can not get it to work. I read extensively in the forum, yepher/stockfetcher/command.html, and the user guide. I see examples of similar applications, but can not get SF to acknowledge and respond. Can a "wise man" take a look and tell me how to finesse this:

Sort:
set{endtrend,count(IFT(7,9) is less than 0.7,1)}

Sell filter:
endtrend equal 0

If the indicator (IFT(7,9)) stays above .7 for 2 days after a sell (short), I want to buy (ending the trade).

Step #1

Fetcher[
set{ endtrend , count(IFT(7,9) below 0.7 , 1) }

add column IFT(7,9)

endtrend equal 1

close above 20
volume above 1000000

]




"If the indicator (IFT(7,9)) stays above .7 for 2 days after a sell (short), I want to buy (ending the trade). "

I am not exactly sure what you want.

Your set statment is counting IFT below .7 but your selection criteria is selection IFT above .7!?!?!?

HTH.

Thank you!! for the clairification.

I want to give IFT(2,7) 2 days to fall below 0.7. If it does not... I wish to close the trade (buy).

Do I need to extend the period in count (IFT(2,7) below .7,2) and use 'endtrend equal 0' as the trade ending command? The count statement will be either 0,1 or 2. If 0 I wish to close the trade. Is this correct?

or keep the period at 1 and rephrase the close instruction (endtrend equal 0 for last 2 days)?

TRO, I thank you in advance.......
