Hello Fellow Members,
I had a question concerning pivot points and data history. All pivot point indicators I find for MT4 only allow for the pivots to be applied to the current day. I wanted to do some backtesting using pivots points but Iíve had to calculate them by hand and use the horizontal line tool to see what they were for dates in the past.
Is it possible to create an indicator that allows you to apply pivot points to a specific date? Say Iím reviewing a yearsí worth of data and I want to apply the pivots to a specific date to see how they performed. Is that possible?
that should be possible to do in MT4. Most pivot indicators look a fixed number of bars back (usually one day). So either let the indicator look back a number of days you set via an input or let it cycle through the previous days until it finds a date that you set up via an input, too.
Something along these lines should do the trick.
