Sequential occurances of less than value in excel

I'm looking for a formula that will return the value of 4 in cell A2.  It answers the question:  What is the maximum number of times in sequence was the value of -10 exceeded in A4:A16?

Hi there,

My first response would be to create a countif formula such as: =COUNTIF(A4:A16,">-10")

However, where is your sequence within a4:a16 ? because that would add to the formula to get an answer of 4.

=FREQUENCY(A4:A16,A1)

Put this array formula (Press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER) in A2:
=MAX(FREQUENCY(IF(A4:A16<=-10,ROW(A4:A16)),IF(A4:A16>-10,ROW(A4:A16))))
