Weekly Calculation s

Postby thechartist13 » Mon Jun 10, 2013 8:16 am

Rather than loking at daily changes, I've been doing some weekly analysis of late. Is there a way to have the calculator return only weekly results or is that something that would need to be manually sorted?

I think you would need to identify weekly results manually. On the Trades Report in the Detailed Analysis, there are tabs for Yearly and Monthly results, but there is not one for Weekly. Sorry.

I'm not sure if it's of any help, but it's possible to have StrataSearch evaluate weekly price bars using the period() formula. Here are a couple examples:

The Price Rate-Of-Change based on 10 weekly price bars:
period(WEEKLY, proc(close, 10))

The Relative Strength Index based on 14 weekly price bars:
period(WEEKLY, rsi(14))

StrataSearch results will still be "daily", but the above rules would trigger buys and sells based on weekly price bars. I have not spent much time experimenting with weekly bars like this, but I know some other users have tried it.
