Signal Counter Node
The Signal Counter node gives an output signal when the specified number of input signals is reached, during the Lookback Period. The counting can be reset to zero using the Reset conditions.
The number of bars to look back for a Counting What occurrence. IE. Lets say you are using a 1 minute chart, and are looking for the third occurrence when the CCI crosses some value. Most likely these three crossovers need to occur within some time frame, such as 30 minutes. Therefore this setting would be set to 30, for 30 minutes or 30 bars to look back.
The solver’s Output value will increase as the number of Counting What increases, within the Lookback Period. IE. Using the previous CCI example above, and Value if Counted = 1, when the first CCI cross occurs the output value will be 1/3 or 0.33. The second cross will output 2/3 or 0.67.
The Output value will remain at 0 until the number of Counting What within the Lookback Period is reached.
