How do I write the PCF to scan for patterns on a weekly chart ie if I already have a PCF written for a favorite pattern on a daily chart, how do I rewrite it to look for the same pattern on a weekly chart? Thanks.

It depends to a great extent on the Daily formula that needs to be converted to Weekly.

C converts to C
C1 converts to C5
H converts to MAXH5
H1 converts to MAXH5.5
L converts to MINL5
L1 converts to MINL5.5
O converts to O4
O1 converts to O9

Many functions and indicators need to be expanded manually be creating them from the values for daily components.

Using the login described above, please let me know if
the following is correct to find;

"This week's High is a new 4 week High"

Should be coded as;

(MAXH5 > MAXH15.5)

This assumes that all weeks are 5 days.
What happens when there are holiday shortened weeks ?

TeleChart does not use calendar weeks.

(MAXH5 > MAXH15.5)

Your PCF will return TRUE if the high of the most recent 5 days is the highest high for the past 20 days.
