Are you measuring calendar weeks or just 5 trading days ago?

Topic: How to get charts to show pre-split price and post split price

CYTR hasn't split since May of 2012 and that data isn't visible on the hourly chart.

VTR pays frequent dividends so I assume the other site is adjusting their prices for the divident payments. In TC2000, we do not adjust stock prices for dividends.

No, the only thing you can import is a list of symbols.

I&#39;ll have to leave this for Bruce.  0 / (STDDEV20*4 <= 3 * ATR20) is not a valid formula so I don&#39;t think it&#39;s the one he gave you. He&#39;ll be back in the office on the 18th.

Topic: Backscanner - adding symbol equity lines
Posted: Wednesday, April 12, 2017 2:15:55 PM

Yes, you can create a new RealCode indicator and then drag each equity plot into the editor. When you drag the plots into the editor, it will create variables for each plot and you can then write your formula using those variables.

The example below uses a stochastic plot and a Wilder&#39;s RSI plot. The formula divides Stoc by WRSI.

&#39;|*** Copy and paste this header and code into StockFinder *********
&#39;|*** Indicator:My Indicator
&#39;|*** Example: plot = price.close - price.close(1)
&#39;# Stoc = chart.Stochastics
&#39;# WR = chart.WildersRSI
plot = stoc.close / wr.close

Yes, we can see it with the link.  Couple of things wrong here.

Your formula: 0 / (STDDEV20*4 <= 3 * ATR20)

That formula plots the value of 0 divided by the result of the <= statement which is -1 if True and 0 if False. Either way the result will always be 0 or "divide by 0" error since 0 / 1 is 0.

You&#39;re seeing the "Is true is not valid" error because the formula as a whole returns a value, not a True or False.

STDDEV20*4 <= 3 * ATR20 would be valid since it returns True or False, but your formula does not.
