Hello, need advice on programming on easylanguage

I need to code a breakout of high of a bar, which have a condition.
For example - this bar hit moving average from top, so it's high will be a stop buy.

boo50,

you can accomplish this by declaring a variable and updating the variable's value to that value you want to store when your conditions are met.

I've tried this logic
 
Code
vars: buy_stop(0);

condition11 = rsi(30) > 60;
condition12 = average(c,1) cross below xaverage(30);
if condition11 and condition12 then buy_stop = h[1];
if marketposition = 0 then 
	begin
		buy next bar at buy_stop stop;
	end;
but it buy not at condition's bar high.

boo50,

you can use the print reserved word to check values within your code and see if the code is using the values you think it should. High[1] for example would return the value of the previous bar and not the bar where your conditions are met.

boo50,

I am not sure I understand you correctly. Your code already does that, except you are saving the previous bar's high (using buy_stop = h[1] when you probably want the current bar's high i.e. High[0] (or simply High) instead.
