I don't see how to come up with an offset for a 52 week low...

I would like one of my filters to be a 52 week low in the last 14 days

Do I need to use the Barssince ??

If you want to find a stock that had a 52 week low at least once in the last 14 days, use:

a = close == llv(close, 250);
filter = hhv(a, 14);

I am a bit confused by the HHV(a,14)

Does that mean the filter is the highest llv(close,250) over the last 14 days? So if there were four 52 week lows within the last 14 days,the filter would reference the highest LLV?

I tested it with 2 formulas.The first one appears to work as expected

buy =filter and cross(close,sma(close,10));

The second one had results that I could not visually verify...It doesn't appear to work.

buy =close > filter and cross(close,sma(close,10));

Any help appreciated

It is not the highest llv but rather the highest (llv == close). Since (llv == close) will return either 1 or 0, the fitness will check the past 14 bars and if 1 is found (highest) then 1 is returned (This means that the stock has a 52 week low at least once in the last 14 days).

If you plot this on a chart, you can see how it works.
Plot "a" then plot" fitness".

Did you mean plot "filter" as opposed to "fitness"???

Your explanation was very helpful

Yes, I was referring to the "filter" variable.
