Yes, just capture the data at the moment. Makes future analysis so much easier. You did not say what data you are interested in, so I can't give you any specifics. For example, if you want the price of the fast MA when it crosses above the slow MA, then just assign the price to a variable at that mo...

Re: Question about writing code for: [last time price crossed specific price] & [high/low since then]

To get a specific data, look back is one method.
But if this is a regular occurance, it is easier to capture the data while it happens.

eg. on a moving average cross over,
you should evaluate that situation on every bar.
If the MA have crossed, then immediately capture the data you want.
