                                                   indicator for 1 symbol in screener and simulation


2011-02-25 23:44:23


I'm curious if there is a way to apply any of the pre-built indicators (particularly the sma) to a specific symbol for market timing (buy/sell rules) purposes.

It looks like there isn't an option to pass a symbol to the functions, rather they only support analyzing the symbol list as it is parsed.

Is there a pre-built function for this, and if not is there a custom sma function that lets you specify a static symbol?

Thank you.

Yes of course it is possible.
You can reference a symbol data using "GetSeries" function.

sma(GetSeries('^GSPC', close), 30)

The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
