Hi all! I was wondering if anyone has seen an uncompiled ea that swing trades using the ZigZag custom indicator?
I am aware that this indicator looks backward and used alone would not be sufficient in itself. I am having difficulty capturing a single value that corresponds to each graphic pointer drawn on a chart. I would like the calculation to depend on the open price if possible, since it never changes.
We have a lot about zigzag in our forum (it is enough for the section even).

Don't try to do that. There are no buffers, no IndicatorCounted() or prev_calculated. No way to know if older bars have changed or been added (history update.)
Just get the value(s) of the indicator(s) into EA/indicator (using iCustom) and do what you want with it.
You should encapsulate your iCustom calls to make your code self-documenting. Detailed explanation of iCustom - MQL4 programming forum #33 2017.05.23
