complete noob here....

I coded an indicator in strategydesk as follows (inner bar strength)
(Bar[Close,D,1]-Bar[Low,D,1])/(Bar[High,D,1]-Bar[Low,D,1])

Can one point me to the documentation that shows how I grab historical data for manipulation?
I'm not looking for someone to code this for me (though that would be great). I am just trying to learn.

Ideally want to add this as an indicator.

Thanks!

Hi,

In QS language, you can reference a previous bar using the "ref" function or using []

Example:
a = ref(close, 1);
OR
a = close[1];

Your example:
a = (close[1] - low[1]) / (high[1] - low[1]);

This assumes Bar[Close,D,1] is searching for the close price one bar ago.

If you are looking for current bar data then use:
a = (close - low) / (high - low);

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.
