Problem calling Pivots indicator

hi Guys and Girls,

when I call the Pivots indicator I get a correct value for today's chart but all previous days return a value 0.

// Variables
private IDataSeries pivotPoint;
pivotPoint = Pivots(pivotRangeType1,priorDayHLC,0,0,0,20).PP;


Any ideas ?

Is it something to do with a min lookback period or bars required ?

The pivots indicator cannot be called, when it is set to HLCCalculationMode.DailyBars. This is a known restriction.
