I'm interested in building an indicator for Radar Screen, specifically to count the number of Dow Jones Industrial average stocks that have a NetChg over some value, say $1, and the number of losers losing more that the negative of the same number.

I'm very much a novice at Easy Language and OO for that matter, but I'm getting the feeling that I need a separate Data stream for each stock. Yipes.

It would be real nice if there was a "countif" statement but I know there isn't. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Chuck6475,

this will likely need some advanced coding, as unfortunately Radarscreen doesn't allow to use additional datastreams. This means you'll either have to use OOEL to load price series providers in the background or exchange data between symbols using again OOEL or external DLLs like EasyLanguage Collections or Global Variables.

The simplest approach might be to compute your indicator on a chart, as there you can use the additional datastreams. Then send this value to Radarscreen, again via OOEL or external DLLs.

Regards,

Thank you for the reply. OOEL and external DLL's are outside my parameter range. I think I'll go for the indicator on a chart and deal with 31 data streams, then plot a horizontal line the indicator panel, like RSI.
