Tutorial 92 | Plot the last ‘N’ high pivots on MultiCharts Scanner/RadarScreen

Tutorial 92 demonstrates how to write a TradeStation EasyLanguage/MultiCharts PowerLanguage indicator that displays the last several high pivot values. The number of pivots displayed is determined by a user input. Since it is not possible to increase the number of plots programatically, this program uses a technique that places the pivot values into a text string which is then displayed in one column of the MultiCharts Scanner.
