For red between green:

If the Color Based On setting for Price History is to Net Change:

C >= C1 AND C1 < C2 AND C2 >= C3

If the Color Based On setting for Price History is set to Open vs Close:

C >= O AND C1 < O1 AND C2 >= O2

For green between red:

If the Color Based On setting for Price History is to Net Change:

C < C1 AND C1 >= C2 AND C2 < C3

If the Color Based On setting for Price History is set to Open vs Close:

C < O AND C1 >= O1 AND C2 < O2

I was wondering if ther was a way to scan for monthly market swings. I am trying to identify the potential low for a monthly swing. If the stock is making lower swing lows , I would like to Identify the bar of the swing low prior to the reversal.  Obviously that bar may not be the low bar, but I would like to I dentify the bars as the creat lower lows.  

 

thanks in advance

I really don't understand the question.

I understand what most people mean by swing lows. A low with a certain number of higher lows before it and a certain number of higher lows after it. We can create a formula based on you defining both numbers as desired.

For monthly market swings, is this just done using monthly bars, or are you trying to identify multiple swing lows in the same month or something else entirely?

mutiple swing lows in the same month.  How can I attach a picture?  I think a picture would explain better

The best topic of which I'm aware on how to post images in the forums is Inserting A Chart into A Worden post.

The following Indicator Formula returns the value of the most recent low with two higher lows right before it and 1 higher low right after it as long as it happened in the most recent 30 bars. Otherwise it returns the current low.

IIF(L > L1 AND L1 < MINL2.2, L1, IIF(L1 > L2 AND L2 < MINL2.3, L2, IIF(L2 > L3 AND L3 < MINL2.4, L3, IIF(L3 > L4 AND L4 < MINL2.5, L4, IIF(L4 > L5 AND L5 < MINL2.6, L5, IIF(L5 > L6 AND L6 < MINL2.7, L6, IIF(L6 > L7 AND L7 < MINL2.8, L7, IIF(L7 > L8 AND L8 < MINL2.9, L8, IIF(L8 > L9 AND L9 < MINL2.10, L9, IIF(L9 > L10 AND L10 < MINL2.11, L10, IIF(L10 > L11 AND L11 < MINL2.12, L11, IIF(L11 > L12 AND L12 < MINL2.13, L12, IIF(L12 > L13 AND L13 < MINL2.14, L13, IIF(L13 > L14 AND L14 < MINL2.15, L14, IIF(L14 > L15 AND L15 < MINL2.16, L15, IIF(L15 > L16 AND L16 < MINL2.17, L16, IIF(L16 > L17 AND L17 < MINL2.18, L17, IIF(L17 > L18 AND L18 < MINL2.19, L18, IIF(L18 > L19 AND L19 < MINL2.20, L19, IIF(L19 > L20 AND L20 < MINL2.21, L20, IIF(L20 > L21 AND L21 < MINL2.22, L21, IIF(L21 > L22 AND L22 < MINL2.23, L22, IIF(L22 > L23 AND L23 < MINL2.24, L23, IIF(L23 > L24 AND L24 < MINL2.25, L24, IIF(L24 > L25 AND L25 < MINL2.26, L25, IIF(L25 > L26 AND L26 < MINL2.27, L26, IIF(L26 > L27 AND L27 < MINL2.28, L27, IIF(L27 > L28 AND L28 < MINL2.29, L28, IIF(L28 > L29 AND L29 < MINL2.30, L29, IIF(L29 > L30 AND L30 < MINL2.31, L30, L))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
