    How to check whether a condition is true within x bars ago?


    For example, if the following condition (below) is true within the last 10 bars.

    <Condition>
    if ((MACD1.Avg[0] >= 10)
    && (Close[0] > SMA2[0])
    )



    Execute the following script (if the condition above is true as of 10 bars ago):

    <Action to execute, if Condition is True>
    Draw.TriangleDown(xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx);

    Hello cryfgg,

    Thanks for your post.

    You could use a loop to change the BarsAgo value to look back 10 bars to see if the condition is true in the last 10 bars.

    Note that you would need to make sure to use a CurrentBar check for 10 bars to avoid an index out-of-range error.

    See the help guide documentation below.

    CurrentBar: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...currentbar.htm
    Make sure you have enough bars in the data series you are accessing: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...nough_bars.htm

    Let us know if we may assist further.
