I'm trying to build a scan based off of the Last Stoachastic technique and I'm running into an issue with the look back period. The system is the K%(39) crosses above 50 and today's close is above the high of last week. I'm having an issue getting SF to understand the last bit about the price being above last week's high. Any help would be appreciated.

/*Only solution I could come up with for today's price being higher than last week's price but doesn't seem to work*/
Close < high 1 week close

The following line might get you what you want:

Close < weekly high 1 week ago add column weekly high add column weekly high 1 week ago

How about this:

1st, proof of concept that we're getting the high close value that you want:

Fetcher[
/* proof of concept: weekly high last *trading* week */
show stocks where chart-time is 2 weeks /* ie, 10 trading days */
and sort by column 2 descending /* sorts by high to low price */

/* the meat:
* if today is Tuesday, then the last trading week ended 2 days ago */
and add column 1 week high 2 days ago
and draw price line at 1 week high 2 days ago

/* hovering over the points on the chart, you'll see the dates the high was hit
* to confirm you're seeing the high for the last trading week */
]



If that's what you're looking for, then add the screen...

Fetcher[
show stocks where chart-time is 2 weeks
and sort by column 2 descending
and add column 1 week high 2 days ago
and draw price line at 1 week high 2 days ago

/* the meat... */
and close < 1 week high 2 days ago

Oops, reversed your close requirement, lol. Still works the same, of course; just switch the little angle bracket thingy to point the other way, DUH ;)
