    Question about Swing Indicator

    Hi -- just a question about the Swing indicator.

    When I first connect to my data provider in the morning and open a new chart, the chart will show so-many 'days back' of data. If I have a Swing indicator on the chart, it will carry over the swing value from the day before. So that the following code will reflect the Swing value from yesterday if there is not a new Swing pivot for the current day yet:

    CurrentSH = Swing(Strength).SwingHigh[Strength];

    I would like to NOT have the previous day's Swing pivots carry over to the next day. I want each day to start with CurrentSH=0 until a new pivot is created in the current trading day (let's say since Midnight). Is there a way to do this in a strategy?

    Thanks!
    Bryan

    Not that I am aware of, you would have to code your own version of a swing indicator.

      OK. Is there anything that would indicate which bar or date or time or something that Swing(Strength).SwingHigh[Strength] is based on? If not, then I think I can probably customize the Swing code to store that and keep it as a property maybe. Do you have an idea of how to code that? I'm not sure I can add a new property to an indicator or not.

      Something like Swing.SwingHigh.Bar or Swing.SwingHigh.Date.

        Something like -

        Time[Swing(int strength).SwingHighBar(int barsAgo, int instance, int lookBackPeriod)]

        Will return a DateTime object.

          Excellent, Ray -- I'll play around with that, thanks!

            Simple solution:

            Code:
                        if (ToDay(Time[Swing(5).SwingLowBar(0, 1, 100)]) == ToDay(Time[0]))  // Only evaluate swing value if set during the current trading session.
