Hi guys, anybody who could advice how to work with specific candle from past, pls?

I am able to find it with loop(first 3 lines of code below), but after I want work more with it, but its not possible use neither t nor h in those brackets [] as those are variables and just constats are permited..any solution??

def t= fold y= 2 to 7 with p=1 while((open[y]>lov && close[y]>lov) or (open[y]<lov && close[y]<lov) or (open[y]>up && close[y]>up) or (open[y]<up && close[y]<up) ) do P+1;
def h= if(t==7) then 0 else t;
#check more details of found candle/error here : just constants permited
def kandle= if(open[h]>close[h] && close[h]<lov) then -1 else 1;

can you post all of the code? it is missing variables lov and up.

usually , getvalue() is used in a fold to read data.
using getvalue() , might do what you want in the last code line.

def kandle = if( getvalue(open, h) > getvalue(close, h) and getvalue(close, h) < lov) then -1 else 1;

lov is just previous day low and up previous day high..never mind, since meanwhile I found out, that I cant use various timeframes in watchlist column:(..(I am basicaly checking for specific entry signals around previous days low and high)

In any case would be usefull for me to know way how to get this data what I wanted: with code above I am able find candle from past which break through previous day low or high - but in next code I want to work with this candle=I need get this specific number of candle= lets say it was 3rd candle backward= so I need stored somehow 3...(in my code above it should be value of p and so also t at the end (if i understand fold correctly), but I cant use those two in form : close[p], or close [t], since they are variables not constats and so throwing me error..
