Hi,

I am working with the crossfrombelow function.
So what happens is the previous cell was 0, the current value is -14 which for me triggers a sell signal, now the value drops to -83.

What I want to do in intrabar is monitor if the value climbs back above -80
how I am doing it is crossfrombelow(O3,-80) but it does not trigger when it crosses that point.
and also I can't use crossfrombelow(O3:O4, -80) because the previous value was 0

Any ideas of how to tackle this problem?

The CROSSFROMBELOW function requires two ranges, and the minimum range is the previous bar. It cannot compare two values in the same bar.

Here's the documentation:

One possible way to tackle the problem would be to add a shorter timeframe chart that uses the CROSSFROMBELOW function, and then use the Study/Price Overlay study to bring it to the longer timeframe chart.
