Can I assign the Open and Close price of the previous bar like this: Open1=Open[1];Close1=Close[1]; Or should I do it this way: i = Bars - counted_bars - 1; And then use in the form of: Open[i+1];Close[i+1]; Is it the same or not?
How do i delete information from a array file to make room for the most recent information if ??
