N7 SwingHigh/Low DrawText

This is for N7

I am looking to be able and DrawText whenever this is a (Swing)Higher High or (Swing)Lower Low.

Also would like to be able and reference those swings so it can be backtested.

The pic below will hopefully illustrate what I am trying to accomplish.

Thanks!

You can use NinjaTrader's ZigZag or one of the improved other ZigZag indicaitors available here, such as ZigZagUTC and ZigZag_Sam_02.

As far as I know the NinjaTrader default ZigZag indicator has the highs and lows exposed, so you can access them via a strategy. Would just need to add some draw objects.

You just need to call those ZigZagDots or ZigZagWave series, then scan the last n values and find out, which of those values contains the data that you need.

Or just ask Sam, whether he can modify the indicator by adding a few data series objects to expose the last and the second but the last high and low for each value of the Input Series.

Or, you can get and save the swing high/low's yourself by looping through the last n bars.

I'm not guilty !!!
As far as I remember, the ZigZag indicator I use to add stuff was not correctly wrote, and I didn't spent time to modify it's main logic.

I suggest a look at the SwingRay indicator
https://futures.io/free_downloads/ninjatrader-7/indicators/817-download.html?view

From what you want to do I think the code in there can be modified without too much trouble.
