is there a way to scan a weekly indicator for daily movement? or is friday the only day that you get a true reading?

Why do my weekly measures not match filter results?
Weekly measures are computed using "Monday through Friday" data.

The above is from StockFetcher Customer Support Center

It depends on what you mean by weekly indicator and daily movement.

The weekly indicators are calculated from Monday to Friday data. That means as the week progresses, your weekly indicator is being updated daily - exacty as i should be. Last week's data is fixed, and this week's data is added to it.

If you want a rolling 5 day set of data, you can do that as well, but only on a daily chart.

Where you run into problems is trying to plot DAILY values for an indicator on a WEEKLY chart. Does not work - the weekly setting for the chart converts all of the indicators to weekly (e.g., the daily MA(10) on a daily cart is fine, but becomes the weekly MA(10) on a weekly chart).

Plot weekly indicators on a daly chart and they should be OK.

Not hard to do - just write something like

"[Indicator] above/below [Indicator 5 days ago]"

that will always give you the rolling window looking 5 days back.
