# threshold formula

1. ## threshold formula

hi,

In the following spreadsheet i have got a series of daily prices form the nasdaq. In column I, i wrote a formula that will tell me in each day when the value in column h is equal or bigger than 0.7%. I would like to know how could i get ( maybe in a new column) each time the formula to give me the first time it crosses or equlas 0.7% ( the threashold) and wont continue to give me the value throughout the same day.

Hi,

Is the .7% of the daily open or the first day's open?

Why don't you simply graph the data to see it's ups and downs?  Register To Reply

I need it for a more advanced statistical analysis. the 0.7% is just a point in one day that i wish to see when the market gets to.  Register To Reply

If I understand you correctly, try this (in cell M5 and copied down): ``Please Login or Register  to view this content.``
You can't use this in M3 or M4 because you have an error in I3. Also, I would check your formula in Column I as it seems odd.  Register To Reply

i agree with that column I thing
=IF(AND(A3:A17=A17,H17>=0.7%),0.7%,"-") what is this trying to calculate?

This formula calculates, in each day( column a), when the value of column H equals or greater than 0.7% it shows 0.7% and otherwise it shows "-"
I tried your formula and it didnt work. i want that the threshold value or the first time the daily value equals or greater than 0.7% appears i want it to be the only one. i dont want to see 0.7% throughout the days but only once..  Register To Reply

its this bit that doesnt make sense
A3:A17=A17  Register To Reply

So you want to know the first instance (date and time) that .7% appears in Column I? You could change the formula I gave you previously (starting in M3 and then copied down) to: ``Please Login or Register  to view this content.``
If you want something else, please let me know.  Register To Reply

it does work for the first day where 0.7% appears(09/06/2005) but it doesnt continue working further on.. something in the formula should be changed for it to be more generalized for every date.

Hi Hidai,

I think I've got what you want. The problem as first stated didn't really tell us enough. You wanted 1.007 times the open PER DAY and I didn't get that from the first question or the second answer.

On the attached is a Pivot Table that might show you what you really are looking for.  Register To Reply

???

That's what my original suggestion did -- showed the one time in each day that Column I showed 0.70% and otherwise showed blank (including days where there was no .7%). So you got a flag for 9/6 @ 9:00, 9/16 @ 14:00, 9/20 @ 9:00, 9/23 @ 12:30, etc.

What is it you want that's different?  Register To Reply
