Thank you very much we are getting closer to my wish indicator. What I need is only a colored stochastics PANEL, only BackGround and not AllBackGround, like you can see in my #1 post I want to have various indicator with background color and when it is not to much work is it posible to but an other color to the indicator, when it goes up Blue and when it goes down Red.

You are wright I was in the Elite and found my next indicator, a backround colored SMA. Great stuff there

again thank you very much

It's the best way to learn, to do it yourself , that is how big boys like Fat Tails did it.

Had a look at the indicator and found 5 little bugs. Modified indicator attached. Have commented the changes, as the purpose is to show how to do the coloring correctly.

Hello@Fat Tails,

I know this may be redundant, but I would like to be able to choose between color background (stochastic panel only), color background (price panel only), or color all background (both panels).

Please consider making these adjustments.

Thank You Harry,

Rick
