backtesting 3 line break charts

Is it possible to backtest specific moving averages crossovers on 3 line break charts?[tex][/tex]
Update Backtest








Everything is possible. Somewhere here I saw Renko script, 3LB is somewhat similar.

Could someone help me write this script?

You can try yourself, it's relatively simple. Found a code on MQL, so you need:
1) a window back 3 bars,
2) Lowest low and highest high of these 3 bars,
3) simple if decision.


OLDSwing = Swing;

VALUE1 = High[Highest(NULL, 0, MODE_HIGH, 3, shift+1)];
VALUE2 = Low[Lowest(NULL, 0, MODE_LOW, 3, shift+1)];

if (OLDSwing == 1 && Low[shift] < VALUE2)
Swing = -1;
if (OLDSwing == -1 && High[shift] > VALUE1)
Swing = 1;

if (Swing == 1)
{
//up 3LB bar
}

I have no idea what to do with that code.
Are there people here who can help me build a backtester. I am willing to pay

First, custom data feed (3LB chart in this example) into moving averages needs to be resolved.

Well, seems window method I've mentioned is also complicated, so while playing with how to do that, made this naive experiment. Don't think it works properly as didn't checked any outputs. No one said it's easy, haha.
