Trying to write a scan that has current price is 40% above x days before, with x value changing


New member
This scan will try to compile a list of tickers whose current price is 40% above X days before.
However, X days will be represented by different variables, so I want my scan to compile all the results from
the various X days.

This is how I am doing it, but am unsure if this is correct.

So below (see code) my aim is find tickers whose current value is 40% above
3 days ago (p0), or 5 days ago(p1) or 15 days(p2)....p6

I feel like the code is correct, but if I use too many variables (15 ors in the plot scan statement),
I felt certain results were being ommited, so not sure if there is a limit to how many ors I can use.

Thank you.

def value = 1.40;

def p0 = 3;
def p1 = 5;
def p2 = 15;
def p3 = 25;
def p4 = 35;
def p5 = 55;
def p6 = 60;

def c0 = close > value * close[p0];
def c1 = close > value * close[p1];
def c2 = close > value * close[p2];
def c3 = close > value * close[p3];
def c4 = close > value * close[p4];
def c5 = close > value * close[p5];
def c6 = close > value * close[p6];

plot scan = c0 or c1 or c2 or c3 or c4 or c5 or c6;
