    BarRange

    Hi guys

    I'm looking for a function that counts bar range instead of calculating High - Low.
    Something like:

    if (BarRange[0] >= userVariable )
    {
    EnterLong(1, "EnterLong");
    }

    What do I need to use to check this "BarRange" just for the first bar of the session?

    Thank you in advance,
    KingElephant

    Hello KingElephant,

    Thank you for your post and welcome to the NinjaTrader Support Forum!

    You would use Bars.FirstBarOfSession: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...rofsession.htm

    Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

      Thank you for suggestion with Bars.FirstBarOfSession

      I'm not sure if I use this properly.

      Would like to enter long at close price of current bar when it's range is greater than 15 ticks.

      if (Range()[0] > 0.15);
      {
      EnterLong("Long open");
      }

      Can you advise?

      What do I need to change if want open position at next bar open price rather than current bar close ? Price in most cases should be the same but just wondering.

        Hello KingElephant,

        Thank you for your response.

        The code would use FirstTickOfBar and a bool to check the next bar. You can find an example below, and information on FirstTickOfBar at the following link: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...ttickofbar.htm
        Code:
                #region Variables
        		private bool checkNBar = false;
                #endregion
        
                protected override void Initialize()
                {
        			
                }
                
                protected override void OnBarUpdate()
                {
        			if (Range()[0] > 0.15);
        			{
        				checkNBar = true;
        			}
        			if(checkNBar && FirstTickOfBar)
        			{
        				EnterLong("Long open");
        				checkNBar = false;
        			}
        		}
