summarize watchlist column

is there a way to summarize or total a column of a watchlist?

I created a watchlist custom column that tells me if each symbol in the watchlist is at a seven period hi. I then sort this watch list by the new column. I find it interesting to watch the number of symbols at a high go up and down. (to me, it is almost like watching the watchlist "breathe"). Is there a way I can add up the number of highs and then maybe chart that number over time?

Here's my custom column
plot sevenbarhi = close >= highest(close,7);

no, a column study running on 1 row, doesn't know about the other rows.

i would change your formula, to be a %. then show those numbers, and sort the column.
set the time to an hour , with a price range factor of 0.2
