Determine High Low

Discussion in 'Strategy Development' started by clarodina, Feb 15, 2009.

  1. Hi anyone knows how to code in easylanguage of the following?

    Determine the different between highest high and lowest low for a time period like 0900 - 1100 in a new trading day?
     
  2. for 1 minute bars
    avg = highest value minus lowest value within the chosen time



    inputs: StartTime ( 0900 ), EndTime ( 1100 );

    variables: ll(0), hh(0), avg(0), counter(0);

    if time >= StartTime and time < EndTime then counter = counter + 1;

    if time = EndTime then begin
    ll = lowest( low, counter );
    hh = highest( high, counter );
    avg = ( hh - ll );
    counter = 0;
    end;
     
  3. Maybe this will work:

    counter =0;

    if time >= StartTime and time < EndTime then begin

    counter = counter + 1;

    if time = EndTime then begin
    ll = lowest( low, counter );
    hh = highest( high, counter );
    avg = ( hh - ll );
    counter = 0;
    end;

    end;
     
  4. both will do the job
     
  5. I din't think your if...then...statement will count as a loop, unless you place it in one...
     
  6. try to use the code in the above and problem in have to code to define a new trading day to recalculate the hl range. Possible to use the date function like d>d[1] but some days are left out when this is included.
     
  7. the script will save the 3 value's untill there is a new value available which is at your definied enttime, this wil do every
    tradingday
