I picked up a VS indicator (I think off NT forum) which I use to assist with exits.
I have not done any programming yet (focusing on SIM trading), so I wondered if someone could guide me or point me in the direction of some existing code that would paint the price bars for up trend (say blue) or down trend (say red) dictated by the VS.
As I like to use candles and also like to still see easily if the underlying candle was an up or down candle, my prefernce would be for the paint bars to paint in two colours and either solid or hollow eg:
VS uptrend: candle blue, hollow if underlying candle was 'up', solid blue if 'down'.
VS downtrend: candle red, hollow if underlying candle was 'up', solid if 'down'.
Maybe I am using the wrong terminology. All I want to do is paint the price bars say Red when the VS plot is over the top of price and then when the VS switches to be under price to change the bar colours to say Blue. Plus the added feature of using hollow or solid bars as explained in OP.
I don't know if you figured this out already but here is what I think you were talking about...I also included a Volatility Sensitivity parameter to further control the stops...and also ability to paint the pullbacks as hollow bars...Hope this helps..

I am using the dValueArea for Market Profile...I modified it to turn off the slots and annoying text it displays...I saw someone posted a supposedly better version in the downloads section...haven't checked it out yet... The bars on the Right hand side is GomVolumeLadder with TotalVolume and DeltaDiffs...
