Release Notes: v2:
- Fixed time session filter (it was not working as intended)
Release Notes: v3:
- Removed underscore from "_x" parameter names to be consistent with Pine's inbuilt function parameter naming convention
- Removed inbuilt ATR call from function scope in atrFilter() so that it is guaranteed to be calculated properly on every tick (regardless of which scope you place the atrFilter() call in your script)
- Added getPctChange() function - returns the % change between two values over a lookback period
- Cannot remove MA calls from function scope of getMA() in library scripts due to length parameter being dynamic, so make sure to ALWAYS call that function on every calculation (ie. in your main script scope - just as you would with regular inbuilt MA() functions)
Release Notes: v4

Changes:
- Changed barsBelowMA and barsAboveMA to use ma instead of current ma value
- Changed timeFilter() to barInSession() - returns true if bar is inside given time session
- Added barOutSession() - returns true if bar is outside given time session
- Added isInsideBar() and isOutsideBar() candle pattern functions
- Added bearFib() and bullFib() fibonacci functions
- Added getEAP2() function - returns an alternative ATR stop loss formula to the getEAP() function

  Parameters:
    priceLow: The lowest price point
    priceHigh: The highest price point
    fibRatio: The fibonacci % ratio to calculate
  Returns: The fibonacci value of the given ratio between the two price points

isInsideBar() Detects inside bars
  Returns: Returns true if the current bar is an inside bar

isOutsideBar() Detects outside bars

barInSession(string, bool) Determines if the current price bar falls inside the specified session
  Parameters:

  Returns: A boolean - true if the current bar falls within the given time session

barOutSession(string, bool) Determines if the current price bar falls outside the specified session
  Parameters:
    string: sess The session to check
    bool: useFilter (default=true) Whether or not to actually use this filter

Release Notes: Forgot to include export keyword for new getEAP2() function. 🤦‍♂️
