    Historical Future Bar

    In NT7, when backtesting through Historical Data, I could access the bar after CurrentBar using Close[-1]. In NT8 this method isn't working. How to do it ?

    Hello agenor,

    Thank you for your post.

    As the index is invalid at -1 it is no longer possible to reference a bar ahead with a negative index.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

      Hi,

      Actually I could do it using

      Bars.GetClose(CurrentBar+1)

      Thanks !

        If negative bar indexing is not available in NT8, does this mean drawing objects into the future from the bar currently being formed is no longer available?

          RJay,

          I can still plot a draw object (Rectangle, etc.) in the future in my indicators. However, if you use -1 in the code when indexing or in loop operations,although it will compile, it will generate an out of bounds error when indicator is applied.

          I have yet to see anything from Ninja on how to deal with this error.

          Cheers!

            Confirmed that draw objects can draw into the future using negative bar indexing. Yea !!!

            However, the problem in post # 1 still remains. Accessing Close[-1] in NT8 always returns zero.

            Since I do use this feature in NT7, Those code scripts cannot currently be migrated to NT8.

              True, I also have a few indicators that can not be migrated to NT8 because of that reason. One case in example is the H&S indicator developed by Ninja based on a May 2013 TASC article. This indicator uses -1 in indexing. I have asked Ninja several times for a clue to a workaround without any success.

              Cheers!
