NT priorDayOHLC


On using the Ninjtrader standard priordayOHLC. When the current day starts, it plots these lines ok, but it also plots these lines for the previous day. Is there a way to plot these lines so that nothing is shown for previous days. So once the current days starts it plots the previous day's OHLC but only on the current day : so in effect the indicator will start at market open of current day.

I have had a look at the settings on Indicators but there doesn't seem to be one to do this ?

The main reason is to just make it look a bit tidier and easier to see as the indicator plots vertical lines when it moves from previous day to current day. Have attached chart as example.

Many Thanks.

You can use the anaPivotsDailyV42 indicator from the SessionPivots which can be downloaded here:


Required settings:

-> please set all plots that you do not need to transparent
-> set the range opacity to zero, if you do not want to display the ranges
-> set "Show prior days", if you do not want to wish to display the prior day HLC for all previous days
-> increase "Max. plot length # bars" as needed


-> the indicator allows you to display HLC from the regular session or the full session - a specific template is needed if you wish to display HLC from the regular session
-> you may select between the intraday close (last price traded of selected session) and daily close (with some datafeeds this is the settlement price)
-> the indicator does not show the prior day's open price

The chart attached shows the regular session high and low + the settlement price (volume-wiehgted average price between 3:14:30 and 3:15:00 PM CT) as taken from daily data
