We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Plotting Rectangles of Congestion


It's been awhile since I've worked on indicators but I'm developing a way to plot a rectangle as some inside bars or small-bodied bars plot (inside a previously defined channel).

If you see this screenshot, chart 1, I'm trying to identify bars that have extremes that are now forming a congestion channel.

This screenshot shows a highlighted area that I believe should have a channel drawn but for some reason doesn't.

Possibly, some of my definitions or rules need modification.

I appreciate any help anyone can provide.
Happy Trading
