Convert Seconds to Trading Bars

by QuantShare, 2262 days ago

This simple indicator converts a number of seconds (Intraday) to the equivalent number of bars given the analyzed data.

For example, let us say you want to calculate the return of a stock in the last hour.
If you are working on a one-minute chart, you can type:

a = perf(close, 60);

However, if you switch to a 10-minute chart, the above formula will calculate the return of the stock in the last 10 hours.

To fix this, you can use this function to convert one hour to the equivalent number of bars.

a = cvbars(60*60); // 3600 seconds = 1 hour
b = perf(close, a);

Using one-minute data, "cvbars" will return 60. If you are working with 10-minute data, the same function will return 6.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
