Hi I am new to this forum and am wondering if someone could please help me out. I cannot seem to find a reference anywhere on how to get weekly pricebars as % change into radarscreen. I would like to have an overview of the last 6 weeks.. The following code only works for the current week but not when i also want to see the previous 5 weeks close price (which is logical because if this week is not yet fully completed this code wil just count 5 daily bars back and not start at monday):

Vars: cng(0);

cng = ((close / close[5] ) -1 ) ;
If Close[1] > 0 then
cng = ((Close / Close[5] ) -1 ) ;


If Plot1 > 0 then
SetPlotColor(1, GREEN)
SetPlotColor(1, RED);

Any help will be greatly appreciated, i know that there is an option to declare the timeframe in a function but could not find any documentation on how to do that..

Ok i found out what i did wrong... I should have used the CloseW function .. duhh.. hahaha

hi, also you could make the whole a bit more flexible
by simply replacing the '5' by an input variable of your choice :

lookback(5, 1);
Vars: cng(0);

cng = ((close / close[lookback] ) -1 ) ;
If Close[1] > 0 then
cng = ((Close / Close[lookback] ) -1 ) ;
