# Easy Language Function Needed

## Recommended Posts

Hi I'm trying to do some translation between thinkscript and easylanguage. Does

anyone know the equivalent of CompoundValue in easylanguage?

CompoundValue function in TOS_thinkscript:

Syntax:

compoundValue(int length, IDataHolder visible data, IDataHolder historical data);

Description:

Calculates a compound value according to following rule: if a bar number is bigger than length then the visible data value is returned, otherwise the historical data value is returned. This function is used to initialize studies with recursion.

Thanks a lot!

do you have the TOS code?

Hi, Tams

This is a TOS Code:

declare lower;

input alpha = 0.02;

input price = close;

input pthree =0.0005 ;

input nthree = -0.0005;

def smooth = (price + 2 * price[1] + 2 * price[2] + price[3]) / 6;

rec cycle = compoundValue(6, Sqr(1 - 0.5 * alpha) * (smooth - 2 * smooth[1] + smooth[2]) + 2 * (1 - alpha) * cycle[1] - Sqr(1 - alpha) * cycle[2], (price - 2 * price[1] + price[2]) / 4);

plot CCO = cycle;

plot ZeroLine = 0;

plot plus1 = pthree;

plot minus1 = nthree

you need the code for "compoundValue".

ps. please use the code tag to wrap the code. It is the # key at the top of the message window.

tagged code looks like this:

```declare lower;

input alpha = 0.02;
input price = close;```

The code is:

#

declare lower;

input alpha = 0.02;

input price = close;

input pthree =0.0005 ;

input nthree = -0.0005;

def smooth = (price + 2 * price[1] + 2 * price[2] + price[3]) / 6;

rec cycle = compoundValue(6, Sqr(1 - 0.5 * alpha) * (smooth - 2 * smooth[1] + smooth[2]) + 2 * (1 - alpha) * cycle[1] - Sqr(1 - alpha) * cycle[2], (price - 2 * price[1] + price[2]) / 4);

plot CCO = cycle;

plot ZeroLine = 0;

plot plus1 = pthree;

plot minus1 = nthree;

Hi Wchg,

If you see the code that you have posted...

```compoundValue(6, Sqr(1 - 0.5 * alpha) * (smooth - 2 * smooth[1] + smooth[2]) + 2 * (1 - alpha) * cycle[1] - Sqr(1 - alpha) * cycle[2], (price - 2 * price[1] + price[2]) / 4);
```

where compoundValue is a function which carries 3 parameters.

#Param1 = 6,

#Param2 = Sqr(1 - 0.5 * alpha) * (smooth - 2 * smooth[1] + smooth[2]) + 2 * (1 - alpha) * cycle[1] - Sqr(1 - alpha) * cycle[2],

#Param3 = (price - 2 * price[1] + price[2]) / 4.

So try if you can post the code for CompoundValue function.

Am I correct Tams?

Thanks,

Requesting Tams

• Agreed. What makes them interesting or not is their jurisdiction and the regulatory authority. Those NEED to be good ans serious. Everything else is secondary.
