Hello All,

I need help in creating a scan script to identify instances where the closing price for the current week crosses either the current or previous 52-week high. The term "current 52-week high" refers to the active 52-week high. Can anyone please help me with a scan script? @SleepyZ I know you will be watching this thread 👑👑.

Thanks

@SleepyZ would you please care to step in to resolve my problem.

Thank you so much!

This seems to work.

Put this in the scanner, set to weekly, and in a weekly chart, move it to a lower panel to see the true (1) scan results

Code:
input agg = aggregationPeriod.WEEK;
def  w52h = highest(high(period=agg)[1],52);
plot scan = close(period=agg) crosses w52h;

Put this in the weekly chart to see the plot of the 52w high and close crossings

plot w52h = highest(high(period=agg)[1],52);
plot scan = close(period=agg) crosses w52h;

Hi sleepyZ, can you please add chartbubble at the 52 week high and low on the chart? Thanks,

This is meant to work on Daily and Weekly Chart Aggregations ONLY

Screenshot 2024-02-15 061128.png
Code:
#_52week_HL_Bubbles
# Use on Day or Week Charts Only


def agg    = if GetAggregationPeriod() == AggregationPeriod.WEEK
             then AggregationPeriod.WEEK
             else AggregationPeriod.DAY;
def length = if GetAggregationPeriod() == AggregationPeriod.WEEK
             then 52 else 252;
def bn = BarNumber();
def lastbar     = (if IsNaN(close[-1]) and !IsNaN(close) then bn else Double.NaN);
def Last52wHigh = GetMaxValueOffset((high(period = agg)), length);
def last52wLow  = GetMinValueOffset((low(period = agg)), length);

AddChartBubble(bn == HighestAll(lastbar - GetValue(Last52wHigh, 1) - 1), high,
asdollars(high) + "\n" + getmonth()+"/"+getdayOfMonth(getyyyYMMDD()), Color.GREEN);

AddChartBubble(bn == LowestAll(lastbar - GetValue(last52wLow, 1) - 1), low,
asdollars(low) + "\n" + getmonth()+"/"+getdayOfMonth(getyyyYMMDD()), Color.LIGHT_RED, no);

input verticals = no;
AddVerticalLine(verticals and bn == HighestAll(lastbar), bn, color.white);
AddVerticalLine(verticals and bn == HighestAll(lastbar) - length, bn, color.white);

That is great, Thanks SleepyZ,


SleepyZ, Can you also please provide the scan for 52 week high and low, I really appreciate your help.
I used the following but it it did not work
plot scanL = if Last52Wlow then 1 else 0;
Plot scanH = if Last52wHigh then 1 else 0;

There are 2 scan plots in this code to be used with a WEEKLY scan setting.
Use 1 at a time by commenting out the other you are not using.
It is meant to find if TODAY's weekly is equal to or a NEW 52 week High or Low
The images are scan Highs/Lows on S&P 500

             else AggregationPeriod.DAY;
def length = if GetAggregationPeriod() == AggregationPeriod.WEEK
             then 52 else 252;
def bn = BarNumber();
def lastbar     = (if IsNaN(close[-1]) and !IsNaN(close) then bn else Double.NaN);
def Last52wHigh = GetMaxValueOffset((high(period = agg)), length);
def last52wLow  = GetMinValueOffset((low(period = agg)), length);

plot scanhigh = Last52wHigh == 0;
#plot scanlow = last52wlow == 0;
