    Calculate High for every x minutes

    I am trying to have an indicator on a 5min chart that calculates the high for the past 3 minutes and plot it. Is this possible?

    We currently do not support multi-time frame indicators. However, you could possibly approximate this by running your indicator with CalculateOnBarClose = false and then storing the highest value seen every 3 min slice by just just using DateTime.Now etc...

      Drats. I was hoping for a function like the one esignal has.

      highest(nLength, DataSeries)

      Oh well. I will give the DateTime thing a shot right now. Thanks Ray.

        The approach MAX(IDataSeries series, int period) does work for strategies, just not in the Indicator class at this time.

          After much thought about how to implement DateTime.Now I don't think it is going to work. It can potentially work for incoming ticks, but for any historical data it simply can't be done to count 3 minutes because the DateTime.Now in accessing the historical data are all the same.

          Here is what I came up with, but its just not cutting it.
          Code:
          if(Bars.FirstBarOfSession)
          {
              time = Time[0];
              timecounter = time;
          }
          
          if (barcounter <= 1)
          {
              ticktimer = DateTime.Now;
          }
          else
          {
              prevticktimer = ticktimer;
              ticktimer = DateTime.Now;
          }
          
          if(timecounter < time.AddMinutes(Period))
          {
              if(high<High[0])
                  high = High[0];
              TimeSpan valuetoadd = ticktimer - prevticktimer;
              timecounter = timecounter.AddSeconds(valuetoadd.Minutes*60 + valuetoadd.Seconds);
          }
          
          DynamicR = high;
          Resistance.Set(DynamicR);

            Correct, for historical it can not be done.
