    I was wondering if there was a way to detect the most recent highs or lows within a certain number of bars. Do you work with clients who have objectives? Not sure whether I have to subscribe to a service and whether what i am looking for requires me to spend a crazy amount of monthly subscription to get data on different time frames 1,5,15,30, hr, 4hr, daily---OHLC) or if there is a recommendable site that has those time frames available.
    Do you contract your as a service?
