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.

There is no plot that stops at the session boundary. You would have to create a custom indicator to achieve what you want.

How would you customize it using the Current OHL indicator you currently have?
Do you mean by using Draw.Line?

For NT8, can you have Plot have some characteristics of Draw.Line and vice-versa?

It seems cumbersome, when the elements are already there.

I am not sure specifically what you are asking however, I would kindly ask you to direct further support questions to our support forum.
