Can you please help me to convert this study to a strategy? it gives an error when I'm trying to convert it :((
it says:
xATRTrailingStop = iff(close > nz(xATRTrailingStop, 0) and close > nz(xATRTrailingStop, 0), max(nz(xATRTrailingStop), close - nLoss),
iff(close < nz(xATRTrailingStop, 0) and close < nz(xATRTrailingStop, 0), min(nz(xATRTrailingStop), close + nLoss),
iff(close > nz(xATRTrailingStop, 0), close - nLoss, close + nLoss)))
this part has an error when I'm trying to convert this to a starategy :((
I'm using a crossover(close, xATRTrailingStop) for open long.

@HPotter, Awesome! Thank you so much! Do you know c#?
azizgokbas
@azizgokbas, Yes.

@HPotter, do you have this indicator in c# language too?

@azizgokbas, I should to see in my database, but I think yes.
