Arrow plot on high ?

261

Hey, i am trying to plot arrows on the highs and lows of the chart. I'm sure this has already been done but cannot find it online. An arrow has to be plotted at the high of the middle of three candles if the middle candle high is greater than the high to the left and to the right of it. The same goes for the lows, middle candle low is less than lows to the left and right of it. If this occurs plot an arrow at the high or low of that middle candle.

The code i have so far is attached but doesn't seem to be doing anything on the chart or during a backtest. Am i perhaps creating the object but not telling it to be plotted or is it my if statement is wrong as i don't even get the alert showing ?

Thanks in advance :)

Hello friend,

what are you going to tweak?

if you haven't used it before. Isn't learning to walk easier than running

Its only an indication.

Hi,

I just changed it so i didn't need two candles either side of the Fractal just one candle.

It adds a little bit more noise i suppose but its what i use with my script on Tradingview.
