Auto Support and Resistance in EasyLanguage


I am a MultiCharts and EasyLanguage beginner. I am trying to program an indicator to automatically draw support and resistance lines on a candlestick chart based on visible past price action of a single time frame, for example daily. Does anyone know simple and reliable math formulas to determine support and resistance levels? I am not a math expert, so I am struggling to figure out an algorithm to do this. While I can easily draw support and resistance lines by hand, figuring a math formula to do this is much harder than I thought. Thanks for reading my post, this is my first post. I hope this post can help other traders with similar need.

First of all, you need to post the example chart with Support/Resistance lines which you manually drew.

Secondly, tell the reason why you choose to pick that special candle for starting to draw the S/R.

Third, do you want those S/Rs stop to draw somewhere?

I attached an image ESZ1daily.jpg as an example of support and resistance lines I manually drew. I chose daily candlestick to draw support and resistance on because I found it to be useful for determining major support and resistance for day trading purposes. Support and resistance lines, once discovered must extend to the right infinitely.

Start by describing in plain english how you calculate support and resistance, then someone can probably help you turn it into an indicator if it is consistent enough (not subjective).


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
