I am looking to use the current day High Low and Open in a strategy.
What is the easiest way to get NT to recognize CurrentHigh in my trade executions.
For example I have a custom line indicator where I want to look for a crossbelow but only if the close of 1 bar ago was above this indicator and a certain number of ticks from the current high. Therefore I need to use CurrentHigh -10*TickSize and I get an error saying that the name CurrentHigh does not exist in the current context. I have a line: Add(CurrentDayOHL());
trying to call on that indicator but it doesn't work.
Going solely based on memory, typing free hand, not tested...
I don't know about NT7 but I never really liked using CurrentDayOHLC with NT 6.5, I always kept track of the session high/low myself and reset it on a new session.

I am having a problem where my strategy enters the first position of the day and then ignores all profit target and stop loss. Is this because I have my:
private void go long()
lines inside the Initialize() portion of the code? I tried to move it to the OnBarUpdate() section and it comes back with a lot of Expected class, delegate, enum, interface, or struct errors so I am assuming there is something that OnBarUpDate doesn't like in there.
