    Hi all, I want to store the cumulative value between different Close prices, so, e.g. if Close is different in five consecutive ticks, the price difference of each five ticks will be summed until you have two equal Close prices, in that case you´ll plot that last close price (Close[0]).

    e.g. if Close is:
    1.1103 / 1.1104 / 1.1105/ 1.1108 / 1.1109 / 1.1109 / 1.1111 / 1.1115

    The indicator would show:

    none/ 0.0001 / 0.0002 / 0.0005 / 0.0006/ 1.1109 / 0.0002 / 0.0006

    I´m coding this:

    Code:
    If Close[0] != Close[1]
    myDataSeries.Set(Close[0] - Close[1]);
    
    else
    myDataSeries.Set(Close[0]);
    but obviously is wrong and after reading DataSeries class info I keep stuck on this. Any help?
    How can you store a value and update it on each bar until condition set changes?
    Code:
    private EqualCloses = false; //must be a class variable, placed outside any method or event handler code block
    Code:
    if (Close[0] != Close[1])
    {
    if (EqualCloses) 
    {
    myDataSeries.Set(Close[0] - Close[1]);
    EqualCloses = false;
    }
    else myDataSeries.Set(myDataSeries[1] + Close[0] - Close[1]);
    }
    else
    {
    myDataSeries.Set(Close[0]);
    EqualCloses = true;
    }
    Untested code, but it covers what you described. You described it well enough, but then you did not write your psuedcode to match your description.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the question.

    A dataseries can be set using the syntax you have used or myDataSeries.Set(Close[0]);

    Depending on the CalculateOnBarClose settings, this would be set once per close or once per tick. once per tick would Update the current value of the series on each tick.

    What is currently happening when you execute the code that is not happening as it should? Is it that the plot is only being updated once per bar?

    I look forward to being of further assistance.
