Indicator source data (?)


Number of bars used in the calculation





// Prints the highest high value over the last 20 periods
double value = MAX(High, 20)[0];
Print("The current MAX value is " + value.ToString());


// Note the above call with a barsAgo of 0 includes the current MAX of the input high series in the value. If we want to check for example for a break of this value, storing the last bar's MAX would be needed.
double value = MAX(High, 20)[1];
if (High[0] > value)
  Draw.ArrowUp(this, CurrentBar.ToString(), true, 0, Low[0] - TickSize, Brushes.Blue);
