currentbar & barstatus

Postby kagein » 03 Nov 2017

When i set barstatus to 0, currentbar returns 0, if i set barstaus to 2, currentbar seems to work. What is the reason for this?

Code: Select all

vars: barnum(0);
if barstatus(1)=0 then
   barnum = currentbar -1;

Hello, kagein!

If you’re referring to backtesing then the calculations are carried out on the bar close (barstatus = 2) that is why you have the results.
Barstatus = 0 or 1 which represent bar open or inside status will not work in backtesting, only in realtime.
