Friends:
Can any one, please help me code this filter?
I would like to get charts of any list of symbols, like the one I created on the following SYMLIST, as a sample.
I like to glance at the weekly candle, if any meet the criteria.
The purpose: at the end of the week before the options market closes, if I see a candle that is colored different (met the criteria) this week that is closing, I may want to buy a straddle or strangle in he money or next out of the money, hoping that the symbol will break up or down. I don't want to guess which way, but see if the move on the next 30-50 days is profitable on the call or put side.
When properly coded ( if could be done) I will post it public. In the months ahead i will trade it with real money (one contract to begin) and share the results.
It is not my idea but a trader here in Las Vegas does it with currencies ETF's. he coded his charts on TRADE-STATION. I don't have access to the code, but was selfless to give me the strategy rules.
I will appreciate your help.
Hugo

[or any other list of symbols]

[show all symbols on the previous list but color the candle (any color other than green white or red) where the range (high of week - low of week) is less than half of the average 20-weekly range (previous 20-weeks). In other words the candle of any week that meets this requirement, the body is colored different]

chart-display is weekly
chart-time is 1 year

I moved this request to Filter Exchange.
I think that place is most appropriate.
Thank you.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

The colors of the candles are not adjustable. Like Henry Ford said about the Model T ... "You can have it in any color you want as long as it's Black."

BTW, this is much easier to simply screen for using SF syntax than try to change candle color.

Thank you, Kevin.
I understand about coloring the candle.
I ran your filter and did dot return any charts on the small list I provided. Maybe your "trigger" point was looking at the last week.
I removed the list and returned over 800 charts. Somehow your filter works (of course)
Is it a way to show the chart of any list?
I'm sure over a year, there was a week where the range met the criteria on the sample list.
I was trying to show you a picture of chart I have on my google pictures in here by copying and pasting by I was unable.
I really appreciate your efforts.
Best!
Hugo

Using that list, go to 10/13/2017 and you will see several hits.

Thank you, Kevin

Drawing the line at 0.5

I changed the list to popular currencies ETF (except the Krona FXS) and show one hit today.
But shows the the same the previous day etc.

Going few days back, show all seven symbols but hit way before the trigger line criteria went below 0.5

All we are trying to find is the Friday of the closing week completed weekly range (high of week - low of week) that is less than half of the average 20-week weekly range.

The trigger line is a good start. One X or a big dot under the chart is OK too.
i realize I'm demanding too much. But we are almost there.

Best!
Hugo.
