is there syntax to scan for an event that happened between two dates in the past...
ie, looking to scan for 30% gain in 5 days that happened between 3 weeks and 4 weeks ago
1 - write the scan as if it is first occurring today, then use the calendar option (Starting x days from today) to run the scan as of some date in the past - .e.g. close > 4 days ago close *1.3, with a selected scan date 3 weeks ago.
2 - use "days ago" modifiers that are five days apart - e.g. 20 days ago close > 24 days ago close *1.3 and run the scan as of today.
[PctChange(5,close) > 30]
Here's the page where they are all defined:
