How would one go about coding in ThinkScript to find the last three (3) lowest lows, or so, could be 4 or 6, but find the number of lowest lows and then count the number of bars between them, being the lowest lows. I am reading other post about finding lows, but don't quite see anything yet. Thank you for your help.

it all depends on what and when you want to see something on the chart.

if just on the current bar , like a label, then can collect data as the bars are drawn.
or do you want lines or bubbles identifying bars, then the variables need different offsets to read future bars.

what do you want to do with this bar count?

I would like to count the bars, but basically i want to find out how to code for a chart, where I can put in a period, say 100 bar lookback and within that period it will find and or show the lowest lows of that time period. I have tried using Fold and Lowest Low, but I can't seem to get it to work. Any Ideas and example on how to do it. Thank you
