    Swing values producing 'na' result

    I've noticed that the swing indicator produces 'na' or zero value when there is nothing to plot. This is throwing off my exits which depend on an accurate cross above the swingHigh. I understand that the Swing has these periods where there is nothing to paint to the plot when the swing condition hasn't developed yet. The problem is that my exit is using the zero (na) value as a legitimate value to trigger the exit.

    Any thoughts on how to convert the zero (na) value to another higher value during these periods before the true swing values are produced?

    Hello ShruggedAtlas,
    Thanks for your post.

    Perhaps you could check to see if the swing value is null or zero and then set it to another value instead? Have you tried that yet?

      yes I am experimenting with this:

      temp = (SwingADX.SwingHigh[0] == null)? 100:SwingADX.SwingHigh[0];

      Then using this as the exit:

      if (Position.MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Long
      && Position.Quantity == PositionSize
      //&& BreakEven != true
      && ADX3[0] > temp)
      {
      ExitLong(@"RESET", @"LE1");
      Print(string.Format("{0}; {1}; {2}", Time[0], ADX3[0], temp));
      }

      but unfortunately I get the same result

          Update: Ok it looks like Swing(ADX) is not producing a null value even though it shows 'na' in the Data Box. Printing to Output yields what looks like the prior swinghigh from several days back. I haven't a clue how to resolve this.

          The image shows time; ADX; temp;

          since temp is never null but rather is the prior ADX value my code won't ever convert the swing value to what I want
