    How to find bar at which MIN occurs?

    This equation finds a minimum value. What code can i write to return the bar number? Thanks!
    minfound = MIN(Low, Swing1.SwingHighBar(Strength, 1, CurrentBar) - Strength - 1)[Strength + 1];

    It tried the The LowestBar method. And that is the right idea. But it starts the search for lowest bar at current bar But i need it to start the search Strength bars ago, not on [0] bar. problem is LowestBar[Strength] is not possible. How can a person express this idea int lowestBar = LowestBar(Low, x)[Strength]? thanks!

      Hello Kicks.Spin,

      You would need to loop through the bars.

      Below is a link to a forum post with example code.

        Thank you ChelseaB:

        I was intimidated by the complexity involved with that solution (maybe because i am new to this). But i came up with this alternate method that finds the minimum value and minimum bar number with one loop on OnBarUpdate. Let me know if you see a problem with that. thanks!

        protected override void OnBarUpdate()
        {
        //Kicks.Spin alternate logic for minbarnumber & minvalue not including previous 2 bars
        barsback = 5;
        startsearchbar = CurrentBar - 5;
        minbarnumber = startsearchbar;
        minvalue = Low[CurrentBar - minbarnumber];
        for(int i = startsearchbar + 1; i < CurrentBar - 2; ++i)
        {
        if(Low[CurrentBar - i] < minvalue)
        {
        minbarnumber = i;
        minvalue = Low[CurrentBar - i];
        }
        }
        }
