# Record a Value

#### epicable

Hi, I have a question which I couldnt find an answer in the forums and I couldnt find a solution.
How can I record a value of the low price in the buy candle until there is a close signal but in between I have another buy signal.
I have tried recording the low price when there is a buy signal but when I have another buy signal then it overwrites the genuine low price that triggered the trade.
I want to have the original low price until there is a profit or stop signal.
The problem is that stop signal is when the price is lower thant the low of the buy candle so I cant have that value wrong.

This hopefully helps. It is one way that uses a counter and when plotting that limits the arrow to plot only when the counter == 1 in a direction. It also has an input showallarrows so you can see there are arrows that are not plotted more than once without an arrow plotted in the opposite direction.

Ruby:
``````input length        = 8;
input trigger       = 25;
input showallarrows = no; #show only one arrow per direction or all

def price  = close + low + high;
def linDev = LinDev(price, length);
def CCI    = if linDev == 0
then 0
else (price - Average(price, length)) / linDev / 0.015;

def Up   = CCI[1] <= trigger and CCI > trigger;
def Down = CCI[1] >= -trigger and CCI < -trigger;

def count  = if Up == 1 and count[1] == 0
then 1
else if count[1] >= 1 and CCI >= -trigger
then count[1] + 1 else 0;
def count1 = if Down == 1 and count1[1] == 0
then 1
else if count1[1] >= 1 and CCI <= trigger
then count1[1] + 1
else 0;

plot ArrowUp = if (Up and count == 1) or (Up and showallarrows == yes) then low else Double.NaN;
ArrowUp.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.ARROW_UP);
ArrowUp.SetDefaultColor(Color.YELLOW);
ArrowUp.SetLineWeight(5);

plot ArrowDn = if Down and count1 == 1 or (Down and showallarrows == yes) then high else Double.NaN;
ArrowDn.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.ARROW_DOWN);
ArrowDn.SetDefaultColor(Color.BLUE);
ArrowDn.SetLineWeight(5);``````

Thank you SleepyZ. I will try with your suggestion.
The code tweaked for me is:

def count = if buy == 1 and count[1] == 0
then 1
else 0;

def low_ = if (buy and count == 1) then low[1] else low_[1];
