LookbackThe number of bars over which to count positive closes.


A "positive close" occurs when the value of the DataSeries is higher than it was on the previous bar. This indicator returns the total number of positive closes over the specified lookback period. See also: Negative Closes

Note! Version 2010.10 of Community Indicators contains a breaking change: replaced Bars parameter with DataSeries.


Example based on version 2010.10 of Community Indicators.

namespace WealthLab.Strategies { public class ClosesStrategy : WealthScript { protected override void Execute() { DataSeries pc = PositiveCloses.Series( Close, 3 ); DataSeries nc = NegativeCloses.Series( Low, 5 ); ChartPane closesPane = CreatePane( 25, true, true ); PlotSeries( closesPane, pc, Color.Blue, LineStyle.Solid, 2 ); PlotSeries( closesPane, nc, Color.Red, LineStyle.Solid, 2 ); for(int bar = 5; bar < Bars.Count; bar++) { if (IsLastPositionActive) { // Sell when the last 2 of 3 closes are higher if (pcbar >= 2) ExitAtMarket(bar + 1, LastPosition); } else { // Buy when the last 4 of 5 lows are lower if (ncbar >= 4) BuyAtMarket(bar + 1); } } } } }
