Price Drop Scanner


Recommended Posts

You would have to use advanced mode of that. Create a FIFOQueue of the Y (as in Y minutes) size as a state variable and add the Close to it. Then you can get the high and low from the FIFOQueue and compare it to the current value.

Help for FIFOQueue: https://www.medvedtrader.com/trader/WebHelp/circbuffer_class.htm

the example at the end of this page should help too: https://www.medvedtrader.com/trader/WebHelp/state_keeping.htm

@Mike Medved Hey Mike, I added it to the last paragraph as so:

Double high, low;
  PrevCloses.GetHighLow(out high, out low);
  if (Close < high*(1-PercentDrop/100))
  {
      SetColor(Color.Lime); // if used as a paintbar
      SetScanResult("Dropped!");  // if used as a scan
      string Msg = "Base Broken";
      TriggerAlert(Msg);

  }

and it's still not popping up? Should I be adding it somewhere else?
