How to code past x time Aggregation period ?

Hello ,

Need help with Aggregation period to search for current time minus desired time

For example need to code this

input Agg= AggregationPeriod.Four_hours;

As

input Agg = "last 4 hours from now "


Any help is appreciated


Thanks in advance

Hopefully this provides some useful information for you.

The first part with data and data1 @4hr agg defines the value of the bar prior to the current 4hr agg

The second part with x and xx finds the value of the candle 4hrs prior to that based upon the agg of the chart being used.

The last part of Time bubbles shows the current time of the last candle and that of 4hrs prior to the last candle.

Ruby:
#This displays the bar's value at the 4hr agg prior to the current 4hr bar
input Agg  = AggregationPeriod.FOUR_HOURS;
def data  = high(period = Agg);
def data1 = high(period = Agg)[1];
AddLabel(1, "High @prior 4hr agg candle: " + data1, Color.YELLOW);

#x=last bar being displayed
#xx= high @bar 4hrs before x
def x   = if !IsNaN(close) and IsNaN(close[-1]) then BarNumber() else 0;
plot xx = if BarNumber() == (HighestAll(x) - 4 * 60 / (GetAggregationPeriod() / 60000)) then high else Double.NaN;
xx.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.BOOLEAN_ARROW_DOWN);
AddLabel(1, "High 4hrs ago based upon chart agg: " + HighestAll(xx), Color.WHITE);

AddChartBubble(IsNaN(close[-1]), low, "Time 4hrs ago :" + (hour - 4) + ":" + (if minutes < 10 then "0" else "") + minutes, Color.WHITE, no);
