When a new bar is occurred, the indicator defines points to draw trend lines and, if the coordinates of points are changed, it redraws the lines. When determining the points, the current bar is ignored. Support line is drawn on low, resistance line is drawn on high. There are two points of determining in the indicator. Both types are described below on the example of the support line.

Main parameters:

  • InpLineType – Line type
  • InpLeftExmSide – Left extremum side* (Type 1, 2)
  • InpRightExmSide – Right extremum side (Type 1)
  • InpFromCurrent – Offset from the current bar (Type 2)
  • InpPrevExmBar – To consider bar before extremum (Type 2)

Type 1. By two extremums.

  1. From the next to last bar “go” to the left and search for the first (right) point-extremum from InpRightExmSide bars on the either side.
  2. From the first point again “go” to the left and search for the second (left) point-extremum from InpLeftExmSide bars on the either side.
  3. Draw the trend line.
