IntraBarOrderGeneration vs. O,H,L,C

Postby bibulous » 02 Aug 2010

Hi,

I have a question regarding IntraBarOrderGeneration. From my understanding if I put

Code: Select all

[IntraBarOrderGeneration = True];
at the top of my strategy then it is triggered at each tick coming in and I could use

Code: Select all

if Barstatus(1) = 2 then
to check if it is the close of a bar of my selected timeframe (e.g. 1H). Further each time the signal is triggered the

Code: Select all

C
is the close of the tick and not of the bar. Same for H and L. Is there a way to access the highs, lows (and maybe closes) of the bars only?

Dear bibulous,

The strategy is calculated on bars even with IOG enabled. The difference is that, when IOG is enabled, the strategy is calculated on bars but it is recalculated every new tick.

So 'high', 'low' and 'close' will return high, low and close values of the bars.

I found my error.. I actually have to use H[1], since the incoming ticks are already for the new bar..
