BarsSince with support for Nth Prior or Future Occurrence

by Kyra Packens, 1959 days ago

This is a small but IMHO helpful modification to the built in BarsSince indicator. The enhancement is the addition of a parameter, N, which allows you to choose which prior occurrence of a nonzero value in the Series that you are interested in. You may also provide a negative value for N, in which case the number of bars until the future event occurs will be returned.


Some examples:


Determine the average volume of the last four bars where the rsi(2) crossed above 90:

bs1 = kpBarsSince(cross(rsi(2), 90), 1);
bs2 = kpBarsSince(cross(rsi(2), 90), 2);
bs3 = kpBarsSince(cross(rsi(2), 90), 3);
bs4 = kpBarsSince(cross(rsi(2), 90), 4);
result = (volume[bs1] + volume[bs2] + volume[bs3] + volume[bs4]) / 4;


Determine the value of the "tpd" custom database data four occurrences ago:

tpd = GetData("my_custom_db", "tpd", Zero);
barsAgo = kpBarsSince(tpd, 4);
result = ref(tpd, barsAgo);

*Note: don't use this form if the "tpd" data could take on a zero value.


Determine the number of days until one day returns are greater than 10%:

b = kpBarsSince(perf(close, 1) > 10, -1);



Please let me know if you discover any bugs in the indicator.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
