Basic price pattern detection
(AFL 1.1)


SYNTAX Peak(ARRAY, change, n = 1)
RETURNS ARRAY
FUNCTION Gives the value of ARRAY n-th peak(s) ago. This uses the Zig Zag function (see Zig Zag) to determine the peaks. n =1 would return the value of the most recent peak. n =2 would return the value of the 2nd most recent peak. Caveat: this function is based on Zig-Zag indicator and may look into the future.
EXAMPLE peak(close,5,1)
