X-Axis Constant Line value as conditional formatting does not how on line graph

I have a line graph that shows % on the Y axis and dates on the X.

The graph has a static filter on it that is set to only show dates where the week offset is greater than or equal to -52 (i.e. showing a year of data).

I want to show have a line on the X-Axis that shows where the week offset is equal to -4 (i.e. 4 weeks ago).

I created the following Measure


Week End Date 4 Weeks Ago = 

VAR OneWeekEndSelected = HASONEVALUE(Dates[WeekEnding])
VAR SelectedWeekOffset = IF(OneWeekEndSelected=TRUE,VALUES(Dates[WeekOffset]),99) 
VAR WeekOffSet4WeeksAgo = SelectedWeekOffset-3

VAR Date4WeeksAgo = LOOKUPVALUE(Dates[WeekEnding],Dates[WeekOffset],WeekOffSet4WeeksAgo)

return Date4WeeksAgo


When I look at thie value in a Card it is correct. 

When I add this to the X-Axis Constant Line as a Conditional Fomat, it does not show. 

If I manually type in the date and do not use the Conditional Fomat optoin the lines shows as I want. However as the data grows week on week then next week the fixed date will be 5 weeks and not 4 weeks ago. 


Can anyone advise why the line is not showing when I use a method?

You can try to add a measure that computes the -4, and add it to the chart.
