Square brackets [ ] allow you to reference past price data.

I need a way of referencing future price data.

Is this possible with EasyLanguage?

Thanks

dlipter,

it would depend on what exactly you want to do. If you are looking for a way to access displaced plot values looking into the future would not be required, but it might make sense for you to post your code in order for someone to point you in the right direction.
Displacing a plot value "into the future" will not change the value that is displaced, it will just be shifted to the right. You can check this by comparing two moving averages using the same length while one is displaced to the right and the other is not. The values of the averages will match, they will just be shown on different bars i.e. the value that your non displaced average shows on the current bar will match the value that your displaced average shows as most recent value.

I want to create a function that will duplicate the moving average plot statement that allows you to displace the average to the left.



The attached image shows two moving averages using the "Mov Avg 1 Line" indicator. The black avg is a 4-bar avg with no displacement. The red avg is the same 4-bar avg displaced 1 bar to the left. The displacemnt is controlled from the plot statement. I want to create a function that will have the same displace feature built into the function. I want to use the function with the displace feature in a strategy.

Thanks,

Dennis

Dennis,

the displacement is purely visual. On your screenshot the last value of the red average is only available on the last bar on the chart and not already one bar to the left as the plot suggests.
Therefore I am not sure what value you want to access for a given bar. The plot function just takes what ever value you provide it and simply shifts it X bars left or right.

ABCTG
