first day of the week/month - requesting last day of the week/month

If it can help anybody, here are bits of code to detect first day of month and more complicated, first day of week, isolating holidays and misc. session closed.

in declarations don't forget

 
Code
using System.Globalization;
month


 
Code
CultureInfo ciCurr = CultureInfo.CurrentCulture;
int  weekNumsessionprec =  ciCurr.Calendar.GetWeekOfYear(Bars.GetSessionBar(1).Time,  CalendarWeekRule.FirstFourDayWeek, DayOfWeek.Monday);
int  weekNumcurrentsession = 
ciCurr.Calendar.GetWeekOfYear(Bars.GetSessionBar(0).Time,  
CalendarWeekRule.FirstFourDayWeek, DayOfWeek.Monday);
week
 
Code
if(weekNumsessionprec!=weekNumcurrentsession )
I'd like to know if you guys have a trick to detect this time, the LAST day of the week/month (excluding sessions closed, holidays, weekends), which is more trouble...

Why ? because I like to display my pivots as soon as I've got the close of the last day, in order to think about the potential trades for upcoming week or month.

Thanks already

Here is a method from the pivot indicator, for a DateTime time it returns the last day of the week and the last day of the month.


 
Code
                            
private DateTime RoundUpTimeToPeriodTime(DateTime timePivotRange pivotRange)
{
if (
pivotRange == PivotRange.Weekly)
{
DateTime periodStart time.AddDays((- (((int) time.DayOfWeek) + 1) % 7));
return 
periodStart.Date.AddDays(System.Math.Ceiling(System.Math.Ceiling(time.Date.Subtract(periodStart.Date).TotalDays) / 7) * 7).Date;
}
else if (
pivotRange == PivotRange.Monthly)
{
DateTime result = new DateTime(time.Yeartime.Month1); 
return 
result.AddMonths(1).AddDays(-1);
}
else
return 
time;

If you want to add holidays, you need an array which contains all relevant holiday dates. May I point again to the SessionPivots indicator for NT7. I had exactly the same problems.
