Plot Lowest Low AFTER Intraday High

New member
I am working on a TOS script for a scanner and stuck on Retrieving the Lowest low within a specified period after Highest High is captured in the specified period, please see code below: Will appreciate help in obtaining lowAfterHigh

input periodStartEST = 0930;
input periodEndEST = 1200;

# Define some variables to identify the start and end of the period
def periodStart = if secondsTillTime(periodStartEST) <=0 and secondsTillTime(periodStartEST)[1] > 0 then 1 else 0;
def periodEnd = if secondsTillTime(periodEndEST) <=0 and secondsTillTime(periodEndEST)[1] > 0 then 1 else 0;

# Define variables to identify the period as a whole
def inPeriod = if periodStart then 1 else if periodEnd then 0 else inPeriod[1];
def newPeriod = if periodStart then 1 else 0;

# Capture the high, low, and open only within the period. Reset when a new period starts
def highOfPeriod = if newPeriod then high else if inPeriod then if high > highOfPeriod[1] then high else highOfPeriod[1] else highOfPeriod[1];
def lowOfPeriod = if newPeriod then low else if inPeriod then if low < lowOfPeriod[1] then low else lowOfPeriod[1] else lowOfPeriod[1];
def openOfPeriod = if newPeriod then open else openOfPeriod[1];

#capture the low/lowest that occurs after highofperiod --this is where i need help
def lowAfterHigh = ?????

Thanks

Plot Lowest Low that comes after the Intraday High?

Try This

Ruby:
#Highest High during RTH
def h        = compoundValue(1,
               if GetTime() crosses above RegularTradingStart(GetYYYYMMDD())
               then high
               else max(high,h[1]), h[1]);
              
def hbn      = if GetDay() == GetLastDay()
               then if high == h
                    then BarNumber()
                    else hbn[1]
               else 0;

def hday     = if BarNumber() == HighestAll(hbn)
               then high
               else hday[1];

lowofperiod is different from the lowafterhigh as the low of the period can occur before highofperiod .
Trying to use barnumber , have to see if i get see sample codes on that
 
@daven I'm a little confused. On your original request you said " the Lowest low within a specified period after Highest High is captured in the specified period,". In your last post you said the low can happen before the high. If you want to capture the lowest low after a new highest high, then use:
Ruby:
if newPeriod then low else if highofPeriod > highofPeriod[1] then low else if inPeriod then if low < lowOfPeriod[1] then low else lowOfPeriod[1] else lowOfPeriod[1]

The added condition resets the low when a new high is made.

Thanks for looking into this and sorry for the confusion , the attached chart snippet will show what the instance I was trying to describe. I will test the new code snippet.. Thanks
