Trading Days Left in Month

Hi

I am having some trouble building a function to tell me how many trading days are left in the monh.

below is the code I have so far.

variables: tdlim(0), thisMonth(0), lastDate(0), count(0);

thisMonth = Month(date[0]);
lastDate = symbol_date[0];
count = 0;
tdlim = 0;

while Month(symbol_date[count]) = thisMonth begin

if lastDate <> symbol_date[count] then begin
tdlim = tdlim + 1;
lastDate = symbol_date[count];
end;

count = count - 1;
end;


I am having a problem when I reach the end of the bar series, I dont know how to stop it tring to refer to bars that dont exist, is there a way to tel the number of bars loaded?

Thanks

Mike

Hi Mike,

CurrentBar + MaxBarsBack should give you the total number of bars on the chart.

upshon,

I don't understand why this would matter? CurrentBar + MaxBarsBack (if it's 0, 100 or 500 does not matter) gives you the total number of bars on the chart. You can use this value then in your loop to make sure that you don't try to look beyond data available on the chart.

Regards,

ABCTG

I am looking forward not backwards. in my while loop I am counting bars ahead of current bar where future bar month is the same as current bar. If I dont know the total number of bars in the price series and I try and reference a bar that does not exist Multiharts throws error.

Current bar gives me the bar I am currently referencing, maxbarsback is always 0.

Again thanks for your help.
