I need help.

I call this the Silly Filter because it's not really a filter, it just tells you how many days a stock has been up as opposed to down over the last 100 days. I use it some times as a starting point for learning more about different indicators. I wouldn't trade from it and I definitely don't recommend anyone else trading off it.

But here's where I need help with it. A lot of the charts on my first page of results show data only going back to November or December of 2019. The other pages show charts with a couple of years of data so I doubt the coding is the problem (debugging doesn't show any syntax errors either, and there are so few lines that those should be easy to spot). I'm guessing those charts are for stocks or ETF's that only listed recently but I only want to see charts for stocks that are at least 100 days old. So how do I filter out anything that's new? (Click on it to see it the way I do.)

Fetcher[set {dayup, count(close > open,100)}
set {daydown, count(close < open,100)}
set {daystat, dayup - daydown}

Show stocks where close is > 2
and daystat > 0

draw MA(13)
draw MA(48)
do not draw daystat

add column separator
add column dayup {up}
add column daydown {down}
add column daystat {difference}
add column separator
add column industry
add column sector

sort column 6 descending
]

Add the following line:

volume 100 days ago > 0

Fetcher[
volume 100 days ago > 0

set {dayup, count(close > open,100)}
set {daydown, count(close < open,100)}
set {daystat, dayup - daydown}

Show stocks where close is > 2
and daystat > 0

draw MA(13)
draw MA(48)
do not draw daystat

add column separator
add column dayup {up}
add column daydown {down}
add column daystat {difference}
add column separator
add column industry
add column sector

sort column 6 descending
