This might have been done already but can't seem to find an answer.

This scan won't trigger or show anything until the last 30 mins of the day
I thought I could do this with custom time frame but you can't use that in a scan

The following is the logic I am trying to scan for: - (1 min chart is my target for this scan)

Record the close of the first 1 min bar - (Variable A)
Record the close of the 1 min bar at mid day so in 3hours 15 mins - (Variable B)
Record the close of the 1 min bar at 30 mins before market close - (Variable C)
Scan is true if the following condition is met
(Variable A) > (Variable B) and (Variable B) < (Variable C)

There is a problem I could anticipate but not sure how to fix it - Not every 1 min chart has 390 bars (I am not sure if this will be an issue or if there is a way to get around it)

Any help would be appreciated.
