Help with Custom Script Code to Draw Horizontal lines at pre-defined price levels

Hello,

I wanted to create a custom script that can draw horizontal lines at various price levels.

For Eg, I wrote the follwing code so that after loading the indicator, it will immediately draw two horizontal lines at two price levels 43.45 and 43.82. As per the syntax mentioned here PLOT_LINE - CTS Wiki

I wrote the following code.. but this is not working. Why ? Please help.

//code starts
PLOT_LINE(43.45);
PLOT_LINE(43.82);
//code ends

I also tried the following combinations so that I can make the lines look differnet. But this is also not working..

//code starts
PLOT_LINE(43.45 , 1 , Color.Red, LineStyle.Solid);
PLOT_LINE(43.82, 1 , Color.Black, LineStyle.Dash);
//code ends

By the way, there are no errors. I see green flag on top right corner. So, why are the horizontal lines not showing up ?? :- (
PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Regards.

Karthik,

Your code works in terms of drawing lines, but what product are you looking at? If it's CL, remove the decimal and you should see the lines on your chart. We do not receive CL data from the exchange with a decimal, so we do not display it with a decimal. The price instead appears as 4345 or 4382, not 43.45 or 43.82. You can also use our pre-made horizontal line tool shown in the screenshot below. Just select Horizontal Line from the pointer dropdown menu, then click on the chart at the desired price level to draw the line.

Thanks,
Brian

Option to reset volume profile/volume by price on price ladder?

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

 
Hi there,
I was recently trading using Easyscreen and they had a great function on the DOM.
They had the normal volume profile next to the price ladder that built up through the day as normal.
However, there was an extra function where you could add another volume profile column, and the profile started collating from the moment the new profile was opened up OR when you pressed a reset button at any point. So there were two profiles next to each other.

To explain why this was so useful, it meant you could restart the profile for the afternoon session after the morning session (I'm in the UK so UK session and US session can be separated).

Another GREAT use is just before big news comes out. If there is a surprise number then this new profile is painted using buying and selling that is reacting to the new situation which is vital. But if this buying and selling is taking place within the existing volume profile then you can't see a thing.

Does the current price ladder have this capability, and if not is there a chance that this could be added?

Thanks,
Bootsyjam

Bootsyjam, no we do not currently have this feature. I will pass along your idea to our development team and keep you posted.

Thanks Brian

Thanks Brian,
Was speaking to a prop trader today who had also used this second (and resettable) volume profile on Easyscreen and he was quite wistful about it as well!

Bootsyjam

Hi Brian, thanks for the public forum to ask these questions. I have a non-technical quesion: does CTS have any plans to offer a "dark theme" (see: this thread)? If not, can you let us know if there are (or aren't) any plans to add it in a future update?

Tseanami, yes we are working on a Dark Theme. I am hoping we release sometime soon maybe by the end of March.

Thanks Brian
