5 day low yesterday
« on: September 14, 2012, 07:02:40 pm »
Is it possible to set up an alert where today breaks the high of yesterday and yesterdays low made a five day low?

Currently, that is a multi-step process.

Create a strategy that gives you 5 day lows.
Set the View Mode to Group and Sort by Symbol so the symbols don't repeat.
Run a History for the previous day.
Save the Contents of the window to a CSV file.
Open in Excel and copy the symbol list [CTRL]+[C]
Create (or modify) a symbol list in Trade-Ideas (from toolbar, tools then symbol lists)
Paste the Contents in symbol list [CTRL]+[V]
Create a strategy the is looking for stocks above yesterdays high on the symbol list you created. (use new high and position in yesterdays range)
