is it possible to create a TOS scan that lists products that have closed above the 5 SMA for 7 consecutive days (on daily chart)?

Trippster , I'm sure this is clumsy but it works, I just tested it. Somebody else may offer a cleaner fix. Set scan to "trippster3 is true".
declare lower;
def trippster1 = average(close,5);
def trippster2 = close>trippster1 and close[1]>trippster1[1] and close[2]>trippster1[2] 
and close[3]>trippster1[3] and close[4]>trippster1[4] and close[5]>trippster1[5] and 
close[6]>trippster1[6] and close[7]>trippster1[7];
plot trippster3 = trippster2;
Here are some results- they do check out.

Actually, you don't need "declare lower;" in SCAN. the rest is fine.

If you need any complicated scripts, just let me know. I like the hard ones.
