    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.
    thanks in advance,

    Hidai

    Re: threshold formula

    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?

    Re: threshold formula

    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.

    If I understand you correctly, try this (in cell M5 and copied down):

    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.

    Re: threshold formula

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

    Re: threshold formula

    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..

    Re: threshold formula

    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:

    Re: threshold formula

    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.
    thanks

    Re: threshold formula

    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.

    Re: threshold formula

    ???

    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?
