Day Of Week


New member
Would anyone know how to convert this into a scan?

Rich (BB code):
# Market Day Of Week  

# Mobius  

declare lower;  
input n = 63;  

def DOW = getDayOfWeek(getYYYYMMDD());  

def Mon = if DOW == 1 then 1 else 0;

def Wed = if DOW == 3 then 1 else 0;

def Fri = if Dow == 5 then 1 else 0;  

def Sat = if DOW == 6 then 1 else 0;  

def Sun = if DOW == 7 then 1 else 0;  

def Monday = fold a = 0 to n  

             with b  

             do b + getValue(Mon, a);  

def MondayUp = fold c = 0 to n  

               with d  

               do d + getValue(Mon and close > open, c);  

def MondayVar = MondayUp / Monday;  

AddLabel(1, "Mondays: "+ Monday +   

             " Monday Up: " + MondayUp +   

             " Per Up: " + AsPercent(MondayVar),   

         if MondayVar > .5   

         then Color.Green   

         else Color.Red);

@15minofpham Looks like it just plot labels on your chart. What are you trying to scan? I don't think it's possible.

Mobius said to use "Each Day == 100% of that day" for the scan portion but it doesn't work even after deleting all the "Add Label". I've tried deleting "Each Day" & "of that day" & replace with Monday, Tuesday, ect but it keeps giving me an error. I'm trying to scan for the best returns on Mon, Tues, Wed etc for day trading purposes.
