Hi, I could use some advise here. I am writing my first EA here and have come across a stumbling block. I want to use data from an indicator called Slope Direction Line. Basically, I want to use whether or not the slope is up or down.
Here are the buffers and inputs:
//---- input parameters
extern int period=80;
extern int method=3; // MODE_SMA
extern int price=0; // PRICE_CLOSE
IndicatorShortName("Slope Direction Line("+period+")");
I want to pass on whether or not the line is in a downtrend. So I am using Buffer 1 as a boolean:
bool dn1 = iCustom(NULL,PERIOD_D1,"Slope Direction Line",80,30,0,1,0);
The problem is that this value always returns false, no matter what the real value is. I included an alert to show the value and it's always true, even when the indicator shows an uptrend. Obviously I am interpreting something incorrectly. Any ideas? Thank you.
