atr coming up zero

Postby KhaosTrader » 31 Aug 2012

I entered this in a signal

Code: Select all

      value7 = AvgTrueRange(14);
           print ("Date = " +eldatetostring(Date)+
              " yTime = " + numtostr(Time,0) + 
              " ATR VAL # = " + NumToStr(value7 ,0));



the value7 is always 0.... not sure why

a side note:

Always use a meaningful variable name; avoid generic names like value1, value2, condition1, etc.,

A good coding practice will save you lots of headache in debugging.
