how to NOT plot an arrow for study signal on a particular day


New member
I have multiple signals that are studies that plot an arrow on the chart for bullish and bearish indications, I have some of them that I would like to NOT plot on Fridays, but to plot on all other days in the week, Some of these signals are only good intra-week as a swing trade. Is there something I can add to the code to plot an arrow that would make it plot on all days if criteria satisfied to plot an arrow, but never plot an arrow on friday or the last day of the week on a daily chart?

Any help would be great!

I am no expert, but think something like this would do it.

def Friday = GetDayofWeek(GetYYYYMMDD()) == 5;

#Plot closing price except on Fridays
plot DOW = if !Friday then Close else Double.NaN;

The help pages are pretty decent to get information on these kind of things.
yes that fixes it perfectly, I just def DOW and then added an "and DOW" to my buy and sell conditions after def Friday above and def DOW

def Friday = GetDayofWeek(GetYYYYMMDD()) == 5;
def DOW = if !Friday then close else Double.Nan;

then added "and DOW" to the requirements to plot a buy or sell signal arrow on the chart
