Above PreMarket High - Watchlist Column - Daily?

Hello! I'm trying to identify when a ticker is above a high made between 8 am and 9:29 am.

This is what I have so far. It only works when I select the 30m watchlist timeframe and have Include Extended Hours Trading session checked.

#ABOVE PREMARKET HIGH#
input alertPeriodStart = 800;
input alertPeriodEnd = 929;
def startCounter = SecondsFromTime(alertPeriodStart);
def endCounter = SecondsTillTime(alertPeriodEnd);
def alertPeriod = if startCounter >= 0 and endCounter >= 0 then 1 else 0;
rec trackHigh = if alertPeriod and !alertPeriod[1] then high else if alertPeriod and high > trackHigh[1] then high else trackHigh[1];
rec trackLow = if alertPeriod and !alertPeriod[1] then low else if alertPeriod and low > 0 and low < trackLow[1] then low else trackLow[1];
plot x= (high>trackHigh);
x.assignValueColor( if x > 0.15 then color.green else color.black);

Is there something in my code that's limiting it 30 minutes? How can I see if this statement is true on a Daily timeframe via my watchlist?

Thanks!

Try to visualize Time Frames as chunks of data. The 30 min time frame is one chunk. There is no way of determining what the lower timeframes looked like from a 30min bar because the 30min bar cannot be broken down.

It is the same with the Daily bar. The Daily bar is one bar. Looking at the daily bar, we can't know what part of it was pre-market.

It is not possible to calculate any intraday data from a daily bar for your watchlist.
