Tutorial 28 – Using Intrabarpersist variables

Welcome to tutorial 28 in this series to help you learn TradeStation EasyLanguage programming skills.

This tutorial was created using TradeStation version 8.6. It may not work in other versions – particularly early versions. Intrabarpersist was introduced in Tradestation 8.1. Practical applications include being able to detect whether a cross over occurred within a bar, in other words two calculated lines may cross during the bar – but be un-crossed by the end of the bar.

This video tutorial aims to explain how to use Intrabarpersist variables. Intrabarpersist variables ensure that a variable retains its value within a bar – this is explained in the video with the use of a simple strategy that has Look Inside Bar Back Testing set at the tick level.
