    Lows great then an indicator

    What would be an effective way of checking if Bar Lows are above a Pivot (or other indicator) for x number of bars. Would countif do it, the problem then would be how would i define the look back period.

    What im looking to do is, if low is above Pivot for a user definable number of bars, do something.

    You can create a User Defined Input variable for the look back period that you can change when you are setting the scripts' parameters in the chart.

    Below is a reference sample of to create User Defined Input parameters -

      Hi Cal,

      I am familiar with creating the user definable input. Its the logic that is the issue. If i wanted to have two Lows above the the pivot I would need if(Low[0] > pp && Low[1] > pp), if I wanted 3 lows higher then i would have if(Low[0] > pp && Low[1] > pp && Low[2] > pp), but im looking for a more effective way of checking for this. ie If the user input is 5 then check that the last 5 lows are above PP?

      Does that make sense?

      Thanks

        GKonheiser,

        You can create a for loop that you can then use to test your calculation out against the user defined input.

        Example -
        Code:
        int x = 10; // user defined input
        
        for( int i = 0; i < x; i++)
        {
             if(Low[i] > pp)
             {
                  //do something
             }
        
             else
             break;
        }
        Let me know if this helps
