I am trying to create a PCF for how many days (periods) a stock is trading above the 30-day EMA. I tried this, but it did not work. Can you please show me the correct PCF?

TrueInRow(C>XAVGC34)

Thank you.

Well other than changing the 34 to 30 (assuming 30 is actually what you want), it should work.

`TrueInRow(C > XAVGC30)`

Although if you want the entire bar above the moving average you would use the low instead of the current or closing price.

`TrueInRow(L > XAVGC30)`

What happens when you try?

Bruce,

When I try it, I get this message: "Error in formula  Missing Period Argument At position 22."

Yes, sorry, it does in fact need a period. So:

`TrueInRow(C > XAVGC30, 50)`

For example would max out at a result of 50 bars.
