Help with indicator; Range--High minus Low of current bar

Hi guys,
I need some help creating a (what should be) simple indicator that plots the range of the current bar in ticks. If you haven't already guessed, I primarily trade crude oil, thus the need for the range to be in ticks. I would like it if the indicator is plotted directly above current bar. All I need is whatever the range of the time based bar currently is, so that is simply the high minus the low. I am super green on the programming side, so I thought I would reach out on the forum for hopefully someone's help. I have already looked through the downloads/indicators page and have not found what I need.

Thanks in advance,
-D

DropD,

I have whipped up the indicator for you. I hope it helps you in your trading.

I have attached it to this post, I hope this is the etiquette and it doesn't step on any forum rules, if it does then let me know and I will change the location/delete this post.

Maza.

I was wondering if is possible to also show the previous bar's range simply by hovering the mouse arrow over the bar?

Thanks

That's a really good idea and one that I would be interested in as well. However, I did not create the indicator, so we'll have to check with @Maza and see if he could add that to the code. It would be very useful.

Thanks,

Hey Guys,

Sorry for the very late reply, sure that is possible, I will put that on my to do list. Maybe I could get something done by next week, hopefully.

Rang indicator and execution buttons for NT 8

I want to convert over to NT 8 and like range charts. I presently use NT 7 with an indicator that performs the following for me.

It will draw a box around the current candle depicting the maximum range that the current bar can grow before a new bar will be printed. It will color the box depending on how close to a new bar the current range has traveled. It will print the high and low range prices at the top and bottom of the box.

I use it to set limit orders to the tick above or below a bar breakout.

Do you have such an indicator or do you know where I can find it.

Another indicator that I have for NT 7 is a buy and sell button that I can click and it will put in a limit order at the top or bottom of the range bar (depending if I click the sell or buy button) and if no fill becasue it does not go above/below the bar depending which direction I am trading

I did not complete the last sentence. It should read as follows: Another indicator that I have for NT 7 is a buy and sell button that I can click and it will put in a limit order at the top or bottom of the range bar (depending if I click the sell or buy button) and if no fill because it does not go above/below the bar depending which direction I am trading, it cancels the order.
