    Hello , how can I code the next statement: "Current bar is rising 6 ticks up after close [some bars] ago" ? Thank you very much for the help.

    Hello Roman,
    You can use Strategy Builder. I believe Current Bar is the index number of bar & have no idea how you want to compare it with price, I think you should use closing price or high of current bar.
    Consider below code:
    Code:
    if (Close[0] > Close[3] + 6)
    {
    // your statement here
    }
    Hope it helps!

      Almost ... but you need to multiply by TickSize.

      Code:
      if (Close[0] > (Close[3] + 6 * TickSize))
      {
      // your statement here
      }
      And if 'some bars ago' is really '3', you need to add guard code at
      the top of your OnBarUpdate to check for at least 3 bars, like this,

      Code:
      if (CurrentBar < 3)
          return;
      The point is, take the highest index value of 'n' you use for
      all accesses of all data series, in this case it is the index '3'
      because of the Close[3], so 3 is the highest index value you
      ever use, so now you have your value for the guard code, so
      that's how you know to use 3 in the check against CurrentBar.
