Range in Ticks indicator help


I have an indicator that compiles fine but isn't quite what I was looking for.

It seems that it will have two prices markers (wanted just one) once both conditions are met. Below is the code and thanks for any help

public class AVGTickRangeES : Indicator
		#region Variables

		private int spike = 4;
        protected override void Initialize()
			Add(new Plot(new Pen(Color.Red, 2), PlotStyle.Bar, "BigBar"));
			Add(new Plot(Color.Blue, PlotStyle.Bar, "StdBar"));
			CalculateOnBarClose = false;
        protected override void OnBarUpdate()
			double value = (( High[0] - Low[0]) / TickSize);
			if((High[0] - Low[0]) / TickSize > spike)
		#region Properties
        [Browsable(false)]	// this line prevents the data series from being displayed in the indicator properties dialog, do not remove
        [XmlIgnore()]		// this line ensures that the indicator can be saved/recovered as part of a chart template, do not remove
        public DataSeries BigBar
            get { return Values[0]; }
		[Browsable(false)]	// this line prevents the data series from being displayed in the indicator properties dialog, do not remove
        [XmlIgnore()]		// this line ensures that the indicator can be saved/recovered as part of a chart template, do not remove
        public DataSeries StdBar
            get { return Values[1]; }

        [GridCategory("Parameters")]		// this line ensures that the indicator can be saved/recovered as part of a chart template, do not remove
        public int Spike
            get { return spike; }
            set { spike = Math.Max(1, value); }
			 //get { return Values[3]; }

It looks like if ( value > spike) should be your condition to me...just glancing at your code.... both statements should be same tho
Also you need to use the public property Spike not spike..caps makes a difference....

Also u want one marker when which 2 conditions are met....I only see 1 condition??
