I re-wrote the indicator once for a client for this purpose. It will require pretty much a re-write, because the DataSeries output has to be corrected or synchronized with how far back in time (bars back) it "creates" the signal. It does not create in real time, as I am sure you know.

Basically you'll need to create a signal dataseries to pass the info to your strategy.

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)

Hi Mike,
I am using your indicator (ZigZagUTC_TL_BarCount_Fibs) and want the values of the direction, high, low of the previous swing in my strategy.
Can you help me?

@NinjaStrategies

I don't know if you've looked at it, but you may want to look into the PriceActionSwing Indicator. I've recently used this indie to reference some swing highs/lows for an indie I created. It's pretty good at storing the values you want, and it's really user friendly with regards to getting at the info you need on various swings.

Just an option of course.

How would that look? Do you just want to get the swing high at a specific bar number and that level it is at?

Or do you just need to know IF a HH/HL or LL/LH has formed?

Just not sure exactly what you meant by your explanation?
