Exclamation Check condtions on three consecutive bars

Hi,

I am trying to code the following strategy:

If conditions are met on three consecutive bars I want to enter trade on next bar. I have attempted to code this but I will be extremely grateful for any code examples because I am struggling with this one!




private int good1
private int good2
private int good3

if(condition1)
good1 = CurrentBar; // if conditions are met go to next bar

if
(CurrentBar = good1 + 1) // if conditions are met go to next bar
&& (condition2)
CurrentBar = good2;

if
(CurrentBar = good2 + 1) // if condtions are met go to next bar
&& (condition3)
CurrentBar = good3;

EnterShort([0] + 1) //Enter short on next bar

Hello Rawheritage,

Thank you for your patience.

You will use the Close[] array to access previous bars from the instrument.

Code:
protected override void OnBarUpdate() {

        //Ensure we have at least 3 bars to work with
         if(CurrentBar<2)
                return;

        //Close[0] will be the most recent bar. So we will use the 3 previous bars. 
        if(Close[1] == condition && Close[2] == condition && Close[3] == condition) {

                EnterShort();

        }
        

}
You do not have to use the Close[] array, this is just an example of how to access historical bars. You may use any of the bar data arrays such as Open[], High[], or Low[].

If there is anything else I may assist with please let me know.
