    Track a specific Bar

    Hi I am writing a indicator that looks for a specific bar type (an inverted Hammer, I call this bar a signal bar) based on a series of 3 bars occurring.

    I can determine when my signal Bar occurs, but what I then want to do is, wait for another 4 bars to occur then for every bar at bar 5 or greater from the signal bar, check to see if the current bar is above the high of the previous bar.

    So my question is once I have determined the presence of a signal bar how do I track it so I can determine how far advanced I am from that point. Currently I am thinking a variable that holds the signal bar's Time reference 'Time[0]' could be the way to go, but I am not sure how to check a currentBars time reference against a variable holding a time reference.

    Possibly:

    currentBarTime.Set(Time[0])

    If (currentBarTime < (signalBarTime + 50000) {do something}

    as time is in milliseconds and I am considering bars on an 1hour chart time will have to be X times 10,000

    Thoughts?

    Kind regards

    Ok I answered my own question.

    The answer is to track a bar's time indicator, and then use an if statement

    if (Time[0].Hour > (signalBarTime[0].Hour + 3))

    I discovered through trial and error hours are whole numbers and not in milliseconds as I first thought.

    Anyway I hope this question helps others

    Kind regards

    Duncan
