Determining the 'Last' Bar

In ThinkScript, you can use the following statement:

If IsNan(Close[-1]) then 1 else 0;

to determine if the bar being 'processed' is the last one or if there are more bars ahead of it.

I tried to do this in NinjaScript using Double.IsNan(Close[-1]) but it doesn't work. Is there another way to accomplish this objective?

Thanks!

if (Historical)

I think is what you want.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Actually, it was my bad.

The statement does work in NinjaScript, but you have to make sure that you use the if (CurrentBar < n) return;
statement properly first. I'm not used to doing this as it is generally not required in ThinkScript.

For the record,

You were 100% correct Big Mike.

At first, I was only testing the indicator containing the statement on daily charts with Kinetick EOD data. Essentially, those are historical only charts. Once I moved to smaller timeframes with real-time bar updates, my charts started going nuts. I added the historical condition and everything suddenly worked nicely.

Thanks again for your reply!
