Hi TJ,

For example, we have a function named highest(c, n) which will show the highest close of N bars, My question is: have we had another function which will show the second highest close of N bars, like highest2(c,n,2).

Hi Steven,

You have to create an array with N Highest close and then sort them to have the second N highest close. In this way you can have all the N highest close from the first to the last, ordered and you can retrive them. You can do this with all the quotes you need, close, high, low, volume, range and so on.
