Lowest Bar with the largest range

Hi,

I'm trying to code a way of determining the lowest bar over a series of bars and if there are more than one bar with the same low, to choose the bar with the largest range.

I thought of using "lowestbar" function but that would only give me the most recent low and would ignore the earlier bars with similar lows.

Any thoughts and ideas?

Regards

Kay Wai

You cannot use the LowestBar method, as it does not take into account the second condition, you need to code this manually.

Just loop through the lows of the last n bars. If you find a lower low, store the index of the bar with the lower low. If you find a low identical to the previous lowest low compare the range of this bar with the range of the bar that belongs to the stored index. Now if the new bar has a larger range than the bar with the identical low, then store the index of the new bar, otherwise do not store it and continue the loop.
