ns


// Prints the lowest low value over the last 20 periods
double value = MIN(Low, 20)[0];
Print("The current MIN value is " + value.ToString());

 

// Note the above call with a barsAgo of 0 includes the current MIN of the input low series in the value. If we want to check for example for a break of this value, storing the last bar's MIN would be needed.
