Only check price (or do certain actions) after each candle close

 

Hi,

Probably newbie question (that's what i am),

I would like to do certain actions (like check price, change variables) based on Candle close actions rather than on each tick.

Could somebody provide me with sample code or another post for me to learn. Found some topics but i'm confused 

It would help me a lot.

thanks,

      return true;
   }
}
 
void OnTick(){
 
   if(IsNewCandle()){
   
   }
 
}
