When I write a crieteria as 5 days ago, are those 5 days trading days or calendar days? For instance, since the market was closed on Dec, 24th does the days ago clause skip over that 24th date and include the 23rd instead?

Although I am so new to StockFetcher that I don't yet understand what you were trying to tell me, thanks.

I was more asking a question about the default behavior of the days ago clause. Does a day have to be a day the market was open for trading for it to be considered a day in the days ago sense. I.E., when I say 30 days ago is that 30 calendar days or 30 trading days?

Thanks in advance for any information.

Trading days, not calendar days.

So what happens if your filter is set to XX days ago and that day happens to be a non-trading day? Does it default to the next trading day or previous trading day or return nothing?
