Using currentHigh/Low Open

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.

Thank you in advance.

J

Going solely based on memory, typing free hand, not tested...

 
Code
                            
# vars

private double dayHighdayLow;

# onbarupdate
dayHigh CurrentDayOHLC().CurrentHigh[0];
dayLow CurrentDayOHLC().CurrentLow[0]; 
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.

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)

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()
{
SetStopLoss("target1").........

SetProfitTarget

EnterLong
}

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.

The full code is attached.

Thank you in advance.
