I am trying to add this type of condition to the condition 'if' statement of the strategy, and while it does compile, there are no results generated when running a backtest:

SwingGap.SwingHigh [0] - SwingGap.SwingLow [0] > 14

In other words I dont want to take a trade if the range between the current swing high and low is less that a predetermined amount. Sorry, I am typing from a computer where the strategy is not installed: I can post the rest of the code later if it is helpful.

I have tried private boll statements but it is not accepted that way either. I must be missing a step that is obvious to some ... not to me though.

Can someone please help me out?

It might take more parentheses or creating a double value of the High-Low


if ((SwingGap.SwingHigh [0] - SwingGap.SwingLow [0]) > 14)
do whatever you want here

private double diff = 0;
diff = SwingGap.SwingHigh [0] - SwingGap.SwingLow [0];
if (diff > 14)
not tested...good luck
