    OnBarClose > Current bar open

    Hi NT & NinjaScript Experts,

    I am using the "OnBarClose" calculation type, on on strategy across daily bars for about 26 products.

    However, I want to retrieve the Open of the currenty active bar.
    Is the Open price available to call upon ?
    Or can I only access Open[0], which is now the previous bar?

    I have an IF statement that wants to run logic based on the current bar's opening value.
    Unfortunately, its it stands, Open[0] will give me the open of the previous bar.

    I would prefer not to use "OnTickChange/OnPriceChange" calculation type, due to the extra processing required, and I think it seems slightly overkill to change the calc type do simply retreive the open of the currently active bar once per day.

    Any ideas? Please advise

    Thank you
    A

    Hello aavevo,

    Thanks for your post.

    You would need to change to Calculate.OnEachTick or Calculate.OnPriceChange in order to shift your references such that bar index 0 points to the currently forming bar. You can segment your code to only run once per bar or on each tick, as needed. Please see the working example here: http://ninjatrader.com/support/forum...ad.php?t=19387

      Thank you - had not thought of segmenting the code
