Opening Range V35

The opening range indicator did not work correctly on FOREX instruments with half-pip settings. This is a specific setting for Interactive Brokers IdealPro, so it does not affect many users.

@Big Mike: no need to send notifications.


@mastertrader: You asked for an option not to fill the opening ranges of the prior days.

Please modify line 508 of the indicator version V35 from

 
Code
 DrawRegion("tagOR" + startBarOfSession,  ...
to
 
Code
DrawRegion("tagOR",  ...

Indicator Updates Opening Range and Initial Balance Range Bands


In preparation of the webinar, I have cleaned up and updated the following indicators:


Opening Range V37

https://futures.io/free_downloads/ninjatrader-7/indicators/620-download.html?view


Opening Range V37 MTF (multi-timeframe version)

https://futures.io/free_downloads/ninjatrader-7/indicators/937-download.html?view


Initial Balance Range Bands V37

https://futures.io/free_downloads/ninjatrader-7/indicators/851-download.html?view


Initial Balance Range Bands V37 MTF (multi-timeframe version)

https://futures.io/free_downloads/ninjatrader-7/indicators/938-download.html?view


The changes made included

-> speeding up the plot override
-> cleaning up the indicator and indicator dialogue box
-> removing a small bug that would plot the labels too close to the lines under rare conditions

Upgrade is recommended but not necessary.

many thanks for the update.

when I first imported the indicator (opening range v37), I got the following error message.

I did a few changes anyway (but nothing that should have an impact on the error message), and now all the sudden everything is fine. very strange. so I don't know what happened. maybe someone else will have the same problem.

I checked it and could not find any problems.

The error message occured after you had already modified the indicator. It does not have its original name.

Also I think that an out of index problem in OnStartUp() can only occur, if you tried to remove some of the plots, as these are the only arrays which appear in OnStartUp().

So what did you modify?

yes, I did remove some of the plots. I removed the mid range plot. also changed a few names. but I had the error message before I did that. (except the indicator name)

I did not know you removed a plot, but I concluded it from the error message!

yes, but when I got the error message, the only thing I changed was the name of the indicator (removed "anal") and that's it. after I removed the plots there were no more error messages. still don't know what happened.

of course I'm capable of doing strange things. not very savvy on this topic either.

but if nobody else gets any errors, then everything is fine.

thanks again.

cant figure this thing out

Here is a screen shot of the plots.

I have my chart times set to NYMEX ETH.

The blue box is the correct RTH opening range. I cant seem to make the indie plot that properly. No matter what I do, it plots from the GLobex open.

What do I need to change to make it plot correctly? If I put my chart to RTH, it functions properly.

If the chart is set to NYMEX ETH the Opening Range indicator cannot plot RTH. You would need to use a different session template. The Opening Range Indicator takes the information when to start plotting from the session template. For CL there needs to be a session break at 9:00 AM EST:

Please use the session template attached, which reflects the regular trading hours of CL.
