i put this in a column       c >= MAXH5

it works with H rather than close but it shows me all stocks that have made a 5 day high. During the day A stock may pull back below the 5 day high and I dont want to have it in the column anymore. how do i make a column with only stocks that intra day are at a 5 day high?

There is no way to determine the high of the day in a Personal Criteria Formula using an intraday Time Frame.

While I would probably adjust your Daily Time Frame Condition Formula slightly to:


Checking for the current daily price to be at a 5-Period High on a Daily Time Frame is about as close as you are going to get.

Another option might be to check to see if the current price is in say the top 5% of price over the most recent 5-bars using the folling Condition Formula on a Daily Time Frame:

STOC5 >= 95
