Possibly a dumb idea but here goes. Suppose I have a filter F. I want a filter F1 which is F plus a measure of results of F x days ago. In other words, F1 returns results of F only if the performance results of F x days ago was above 0 (or above a certain limit). Of course I could do this manually but that is more cumbersome.

So the question is - how do I write F1 given that I know F?

You need to be more specific in ure request. Just what constitutes "F" and what additional criteria are you looking to add for "F1"?

OK "F" just stands for any filter you choose. I only want results from F1 if, as of today, the results from the stocks returned by F 5 days ago are positive. (Or x days ago or above 1% or...). In other word if the 5 day performance of F is negative, then F1 gives a null result.

Hope that makes it cleare - don't know how better to say it.

Accurately predicting filter performance based on past performance may be harder than predicting future performance of a single stock.

Believe it or not, another user asked the same question. Take a look here. I believe the either the "count()" or "day()" function will solve ure problem as well.

Yes I saw that thread and realized the similiarity. I would like to use days or count but as far as I know there is no way to use anything about the results of a filter IN a filter. I hope I am wrong about this but I don't know how to do it.
