looking for help with Pipeline computation

Hi Quantopians,
how can I compute a filter in Pipeline that would return only stocks which where X days goingup in a row.
I realize that I can loop through the last days to check if close price is higher than the open price but I was wondering if there is a way to create this filter in the Make Pipeline function

Thanks for the input.

does nobody know this?

Yes, you can do this with Pipeline.

Typically, the more work your bring to a question in the community, the more likely you are to get a response. If you look at the last few days, the questions with a lot of code and a question about a problem get a good answer, but questions that are more general (and less prep work) get fewer replies. In short: people like to help people who help themselves.

Have you gone through the pipeline tutorial? I think what you want to do is create a custom factor that reports back the number of positive days in a row.
