    Indicator: Checking for first tick?

    In an indicator, is the best way to check for the first tick of a new bar to check for a change in CurrentBar? Will this work irrespective of the setting of CalculateOnBarClose and for both time based and tick based bars? I am looking for a general way to determine when a new bar starts and I would like to detect the first tick. Thanks.

    Check the property FirstTickOfBar.

    This property is irrelevant if running CalculateOnBarClose == true since OnBarUpdate() is only called once per bar.

      I read the help, but I thought that it said that FirstTickOfBar only worked in strategies. Does it work for indicators also?

        Oops. My mistake. Help says that its a property of both Custom Indicator and Custom Strategy. I was confused by the first sentence that said that it was only of value in strategies that run tick by tick. I need some more Jolt. Thanks.
