Is it possible to run rule-based strategies that enter based on weekly signal (e.g. Friday's close > 20 week SMA), but exit based on daily signal (e.g. any day's close < 5 day SMA)? How to select Scale in this case?

Multiple time frames are not supported in Rule-based strategies. You have to convert your strategy to code and select Daily scale, then use SetScaleWeekly/RestoreScale to build your weekly SMA and Synchronize it to Daily scale. For more information please refer to Multi-Time Frame Analysis in the WealthScript Programming Guide, the QuickRef (hit F11) and the many code examples here on the forum and in downloadable strategies.
