MomoAlphaTrigger (Day to Year) quote for ThinkorSwim

No idea if anybody would want this. Built it a year or 2 ago. Yea, some of the letter coding is out of order (I'm not a big coding guy and have severe concentration issues)
Feel free to play around with it.

Add this to your quote screen. It will average the return of the week, month, quarter and year and confirm that it's positive,
Then add the day and the week's returns to add more recent weight and see if the number remains positive,
Then see checks to see if it's beating SPX by more than 25bps,
Then checks to see if the RSI is over 50

If all tests check out, it will give you a green go signal and count the number of days since the signal turned green. Vice versa the tests fail.
Simple, but has helped me a lot with a quick glance for market winners

# Ultimate MomoAlphaTrigger (Day to Year) by WTF_Dude
# This script identifies days passed since time frame composites are +, alpha is over 25bps, RSI over 50
# if days passed is less than or equal to 5 then we assign light green/red color
# if days passed is greater than or equal to 5 then we assign dark green/red color
# More weight on day and week. Averages week, month, quarter, year.
# Only makes sure the composite is positive. No threshold minimum >0
