newb looking for help please:

i`d like to create several triangle filters with the only difference being the length of time for 'number of days used to create the triangle'. so instead of the given filter:

show stocks where the close is below the lower descending triangle(55,1)

i would like to take the (55) and create a range of 3-15 days, 16-30 days & 31-55 days. originally, i thought the (55) would be inclusive of all # of days up to 55 but that does not seem to be the case. probably a simple fix but i did not have much luck searching or viewing the manual.

thanks for any ideas.

crystal368 --

My suggestion would be to discuss this with StockFetcher in the "Comments, Bugs and Requests" forum. The triangle filters are "black box" types of things and we don't know how they're constructed. [I would guess that there is a "best fit" line through the either the highs or the up closes and a "best fit" line through the either the lows or the down closes and if those two lines converge in a point somewhere off to the right then it's a triangle.] If they think there is sufficiently broad interest in altering the period of the triangle construction, I'll bet they can do it quickly.

No expert here, but are you asking for something like:

show stocks
pattern is descending triangle(13) 3 days ago
pattern is descending triangle(15) 16 days ago
pattern is descending triangle(25) 31 days ago
