This is a indicator for the ACD Mark Fisher strategy, it sets a daily range for the first "x" time, and then adds to the range, a "A up line" ( aUp = openRangeHigh + aValue;)
 and "A down line" (aDown = openRangeLow - aValue;), iam trying to modify this indicador for the aValue be based on a percentage of ATR.

ex:

Avaluebuffer[i] = (Apercentage/100) * iATR(NULL,PERIOD_D1,ATRPeriod,i);

aValue = Avaluebuffer[i]; 
But i don´t know where i am getting it wrong..

 Can anybody help me....
