    Bars since a specific event

    I would like to store somehow the bar of a specific event. And refer then back to this bar. For example:

    I want no cross of the Sma since the rsi was 50 last time.

    Thank you

    Hello Ironman9973,

    Thank you for writing in.

    You can use CurrentBar to obtain the index of the current bar and store it into a variable when a specific condition is true: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...currentbar.htm

    Example:
    Code:
    private int barIndex = 0;
    private int counter = 0;
    
    protected override void OnBarUpdate()
    {
         counter++;
         // get the index of the current bar when the counter is 500
         if (counter == 500)
              barIndex = CurrentBar;
    }
    You can then refer back to that bar by subtracting barIndex from CurrentBar to get a barsAgo value that you can use. So, in my example below, I want to get the time of the bar when counter became 500:

    Code:
    if (barIndex != 0)
         Print(Time[CurrentBar - barIndex])); // this will print the time of the bar when the counter became 500
    Please, let us know if we may be of further assistance.
