Thanks.

Hi @1001 
Yes again 🙂

If you need it dynamic 
First of all, you need the dim_date and mark it as a date table,see linked tutorial (and you will need some dates slicer) :

if it always according to "today"

ii all bottoms suggestions use TODAy() instead date column from the date table.

Last day sales :

PREVIOUSDAY = 
CALCULATE(SUM(Orders[Sales]), 
PREVIOUSDAY(Date_Table[Date]))

this week sales

Hi @1001, Yes, you need to create measures for all your periods and put them on "values".
