Welcome to tutorial 27 in this series of tutorials to help you learn TradeStation EasyLanguage programming skills. The idea behind the series is that if you learn to program using TradeStation EasyLanguage, then you will have a skill that will enable you to try out trading ideas without the need to use a professional EasyLanguage programmer.
The purpose of this video tutorial is to demonstrate the programming techniques rather than to create a tradable indicator. This tutorial was created using TradeStation version 8.6 and works in all later versions including TradeStation version 10 and MultiCharts.
This video tutorial explains how to create a pivot function that looks for pivots where the prices of successive bars on either side of the pivot are higher, or the highs of successive bars are lower.
