Hi,


I don't understand the example given by documentation.


How to get the lowest price from the last 100 bars? The Lowest price will be updated while chart progresses.


Please help.

is it?

double val=Low[iLowest("My_Pair","my_timeframe",MODE_LOW,100,0)];

Yes, but what are My_Pair and my_timeframe?

Low[shift] will only return the value for the chart symbol and the shift on the current timeframe. If My_Pair and my_timeframe are not the current chart and/or timeframe, you will need to use iLow()

double val=Low[iLowest(Symbol(),0,MODE_LOW,100,0)];

//or

double val=iLow(My_Pair,my_timeframe,iLowest(My_Pair,my_timeframe,MODE_LOW,100,0));
