Hey guys,

I need some help please. I am trying to look for the time when the previous day high and low was formed. Below are my equations; they do give the correct prices, however they do not return the correct integers of the candles that formed the high/ low. Please help! 

high=iHighest(NULL,0,MODE_HIGH,iBarShift(NULL,0,Time[0]-((Time[0]%86400)+86400),1)); 
low=iLowest(NULL,0,MODE_LOW,iBarShift(NULL,0,Time[0]-((Time[0]%86400)+86400),1));
timei=Time[low];
timeii=Time[high];

Thank you!

  1. Time[0]-((Time[0]%86400)+86400)
    This assumes that there are no gaps in the chart, like there are over the weekend. Don't assume.
  2. iHighest(NULL,0,MODE_HIGH,x,1)
    This returns the highest bar from [x-1 .. 1] That is not from [yesterday .. today)
  3. Write self documenting code.
    #define HR2400 86400
    datetime today     = Time[0] - Time[0] % HR2400;
    int      iYestLast = iBarShift(NULL,0, today) - 1;
    datetime yesterday = Time[iYestLast] - Time[iYestLast]  % HR2400;
    int      iYestBeg  = iBarShift(NULL,0, yesterday);
    int      len       = iYestBeg - iYestLast + 1;
    
    high=iHighest(NULL,0,MODE_HIGH, len, iYestLast); 
     low=iLowest( NULL,0,MODE_LOW,  len, iYestLast); 
    timei=Time[low];
    timeii=Time[high];

Thank you good sir. Will give this a try.
