Hi Geizer,

Thank you for your reply, I don't think those zig zag are a result of price manipulation. They sometimes appear on NT demo feed, but I have not seen them on real-time data. It is the first time I see them on MC.

Thank you very much for your suggestion but it does not work, the top of the candle is still chopped off, I think it will still be chopped off whatever the scaling.

In any case, I am looking how to make PL understands that the line is chopping a candle.

Many thanks,

Dear TJ,

I am already using the "_s" extensions.

The divergence line plots right, I am just trying to find how it could not plot if it has to go through the body of a candle before its end point.

Dear All,

Is there a Powerlanguage function to tell what resolution the chart is running?

For example: the chart is plotting GBPUSD, with a resolution of 6 points.

I want write a signal that says: if low is above (chart resolution, so 6 points) of moving average then plot1(blablabla)
