    Can someone explain to me how the Highest and Lowest indicators work and how to get them to display/paint on a chart?

    Highest and Lowest rules means the Highest and Lowest point few bars back,

    example will be: MA 20 Closed above Highest[20] = BUY,

    that means that when MA 20 has been closed above the Highest point (High) of bar number 20 it will execute a buy order.

    though it must be confirmed by the DEV team, although i am really sure that it is what it does.

    Hello,

    the “highest” block evaluates the highest high over defined period (# of bars) while the “lowest” checks for the lowest low price.

    So it is not a single bar high/low. For what Karish described the High[x] or Low[x] blocks is being used

    Hello,

    try to use shift = 2 on Highest otherwise High[1] price will also be included in the highest high calculation hence the condition can never be valid
