Using previous week high, low & vwap in Scans

Recommended Posts


I want to have a condition where an alert is triggered if the latest bar crosses one of these previous week levels (as mentioned in the title).
Unfortunately, I don't know how to reference these levels. I tried using the volume by price indicator (set the range to 100% for getting the high and the low in addition to mid) and set the period to week. It works for the charts but in the scan rule editor, there is no offset/lookback by a certain period, only by bar. I think setting the bar period to week is not suitable because the scan should be done on an intraday basis. 

I also messed around with the horizontal line indicator. Didn't get it but I am pretty sure there must be a way to have this done. Is there anyone who can show me?

Thanks a lot guys, I really appreciate your support.. Just to remain with a final thought, an addition to the Historical Line (intraday) indicator such as "Previous day VWAP" and "Previous week VWAP" would be highly awesome. 

Cheers, have a good week!
