Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

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.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Trend indicator, color background


IŽam looking for an indicator that can color the background red or green with the following rules:
If we are in a down trend we look for a close above previous up wick to get green background and,
if we where in an up trend we look for a close below the previous down wick for red background.

I have attached a picture displaying an example on a 240min chart.

I have an error in the picture, short, green background must be short red background.
