This is something I was wondering how to do in mql4, but I think while I`m there I may as well learn how to do it in mql5 .
How would you guys approach this ?
I want to count the number of bars that are above a moving average during a set period of time . Would it be a backtesting thing or just an expert advisor ? as at the end of the day I just need one number, not an update on every bar.
Actually I assume this would have to be run in the strategy tester since I would like to specify the date range .
To be even more precise I would need to count the number of bars that are above a moving average AND have closed up .
Any idea on how to implement this simple counter ?
