Powerlanguage: First Friday

Postby duration » 04 Jun 2010


Is it possible, using powerlanguage, to tell a signal not to trade each first friday of the month?

Or do I have to write the date of each first friday of the month for the last 10 years?

Many thanks,

just make a counter...

1. starting counting when a new month begins,
2. when the day reaches a Friday, make count = 1,
3. if it reaches a Friday and the count is already equals to 1,
you have reached the second Friday.

for more information:

press [F1],

look under

Hi TJ,

Thanks a lot for your reply. I think I have found a problem with date and the bar magnifier, and there is nothing much I can do right now.
