    Lowest low..3day

    How would I go about getting the lowest low of the previous 3 days? I was trying to use Add("ABC", PeriodType.Day,3); and use Lows[1][0] but that apparently gives the value for 3 days back instead of the whole 3day period.

    Looking at it again it actually looks like Add("ABC", PeriodType.Day,3); & Lows[1][0] is giving the low from 4 days back?

    Hi Zachj,

    Thank you for your post.

    You may want to look into using LowestBar() function to get the lowest price over a specified look back period -

    Additionally, you would want to use one day instead of three and use try this code -
    Code:
    LowestBar(Lows[1], 3);
    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

      The [1] you use below is for Index 1 correct?

        Zachj,

        Lows is used for the BarsArray collection to access the particular Data Series.

        In this case Lows[1] will use the first Data Series that you have added to the script.

        Index [0] will always be the primary Data Series.

          This isn't giving the price though, it's giving the # of bars back? I see it in the print output, it show 1, 2 or 3 not a price.

            Zachj,

            I do apologize, that is indeed correct.

            You will need to use MIN(Lows[1], 3); That will return the lowest price from 3 bars ago.
