If I want to know the percentate change since the last market low 12 days ago, I would have to change "12 day low" to "13 day low" the next day and everyday thereafter bump it up a day.

Is there a way to put in the date of the market low in place of "12 day low"?

Unfortunately no. Many have asked for this, so far no implementation.

Out of curiosity, couldn't you just refer to a 30-day (or other period) low instead? This would pick the lowest value over the last 30 days -- which would be the low you mention?

Fetcher[add column ind(spy,low 30 day low)
add column ind(spy,low 13 days ago)
apply to symlist(SPY,QQQ)

I guess it depends on your need, but that would get you the most recent low without having to adjust your text.

A 30 day low would work...for 30 days.

Better than trying to change to "days ago" each day!

Thanks for the suggestion!
