# Compare close of previous candle to open of current?

Hello guys/gals,

Quick question, I have a strategy that plots the entry point (uparrow in the script below), I want to compare the close of the uparrow candle to the open of the candle right after the signal, how do I script that? I sorta put this together but obviously, it is wrong lol

Code:
``plot bbb = uparrow(open)>= uparrow(close);``

As you can see in the image above the green arrow (uparrow) is a signal generated by my strategy and I want compare open of bare #2 in the image to bar#1's close.

Thank you for your time guys/gals

Code:
``scan bbb = open[1] >=close;``

scan bbb = open[1] >=close;
this was my first thought exactly however, this compares each candle's close to the previous candle's open, I want to compare just the candle that has generated a signal to the one after it. Thank you though

Since you didn't post the references or code its pretty difficult to help you any further.

@Learnbot

Code:
``scan bbb = longsignal[1] and open[1] >=close;``

You stated "want to compare just the candle that has generated a signal to the one after it." and "plot bbb = uparrow(open)>= uparrow(close);" which my interpretation is you are seeing if the uparrows candle's close is equal to the next ones open. Strange scan because where one bar closes is normally just about always equal to the next bars open unless there is a HALT or market close.

What are you trying to do?

You are awesome! thank you! i was not perfectly clear in explaining what I was looking for but the piece of script you provided I was able to figure out what I was looking for..

Thank you @MerryDay and @XeoNoX

Hi,

I'm trying to find/create an indictor, specifically a label to appear on the chart that will tell me if the stock is in and UP trend or DOWN trend based on the following criteria...(imagine it looks something similar to the below)...

1. Define UP Trend - If the close of the most recent candle is above its previous candle high
2. Define DOWN Trend - If the close of the most recent candle is below its previous candles low

Then when the current candle closes, the trend label would change if needed.

Seems like a standard way to understand trends, but cant find much online that defines trends the same way.

Also, i would like to have more than one time frame to add as a label, like below.

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

Code:
``````declare lower;
def up = close > high[1];
def down = close < low[1];

AddLabel(yes, if up >= 1 then "UP " else if down >=1 then "DOWN" else "NA " , if up >= 1 then Color.DARK_GREEN  else if down >=1 then Color.red else color.gray);``````

@XeoNoX Awesome! You guys are amazing here. Remind me of a website called MR. Excel if you've ever heard of it. Its like Geniuses in these forums. How would i be able to make it similar the the one here where the colors indicate the up or down signal and there are multiple time frames indicated?? Here is the original code on the referenced example, which i suppose could be used as a base code...i just have no idea how the change the definition of the up or down signal, as this one below is based on moving averages, etc...

if MA_1min_same == 1 {
MA_1min_higher = Double.NaN;
MA_1min_lower = Double.NaN;
} else {
MA_1min_higher = if MA_1min_shortAvg >= MA_1min_longAvg then 1 else Double.NaN;
MA_1min_lower = if MA_1min_shortAvg < MA_1min_longAvg then 1 else Double.NaN;
}
} else {
MA_1min_close = 0;
MA_1min_shortAvg = 0;
MA_1min_longAvg = 0;
MA_1min_higher = Double.NaN;
MA_1min_lower = Double.NaN;
MA_1min_same = Double.NaN;
MA_1min_nowcrossing = 0;
}

Grab all the nowcrossings and plug them in as follows till you have all them inputted:

MA_1min_nowcrossing MA_2min_nowcrossing MA_3min_nowcrossing and so on as listed in your script and plug them in like below.

Code:
``AddLabel(yes, if   MA_1min_nowcrossing  and MA_2min_nowcrossing  and MA_3min_nowcrossing = 1 then "UP " else if   MA_1min_nowcrossing  and MA_2min_nowcrossing  and MA_3min_nowcrossing >=1 then "DOWN" else "NA " , if MA_1min_nowcrossing  and MA_2min_nowcrossing  and MA_3min_nowcrossing >= 1 then Color.DARK_GREEN  else color.red);``

To be honest with you if you want them all crossing a certain way its more practical to just scan for the symbol(s) using the scanner and an alert and just add all the time frames you want unless you really plan on waiting there for it to all turn green. that can all be done with the built in ToS scanner.

@XeoNoX I'll play around with it and see if I can get it to work. More want to use these as a checklist item before entering into trades, i.e. daily up trend, look for pull backs to get long, etc. I'm finally deciding the spend this year journaling my trades and want to find any correlations I can with winning trades.

This is my first post in this forum and just looking to make some new friends here as it seems like a great group.

For what its worth, to introduce myself, I'm currently a VSA and Supply/Demand trader and studying Wyckoff, Tom Williams (VSA), and Tom Leksey LRA "Locked-In-Range" analysis. But i imagine there is a introduction forum in here somewhere.

If you know anyone in the group here you recommend i talk to, please let me know. I'm still a new trader (1 year) and just looking for as much truth as i can find about what really drives the market and how to be consistent.

Thanks again for the help on this.

Hey man, finished it up this morning.

This is a picture of the indicator:

I've created the indicator to display the 15 specified time frames (from the first image, which was in the original post), if you want to customize them, its pretty ez to do so by playing around with the code.

Indicator code:
