I have modified this post just to avoid confusion. The following post by @hegh correctly states how the range bands are built from the initial balance. Paul Colman explains it in minute 41 of his presentation.

You take the midrange of the 60 minute initial balance and add/subtract multiples of the initial balance as explained below.

If you want an indicator doing that, you would need to add some lines to the opening range indicator, which can be downloaded here.

hi,

I think, in the 39th minute, he uses IB (Cash Ssession) to trace the 6 horizontal lines.

So :

1(up) = IB_h + (IB_h - IB_b)*.5
2(Up) = IB_h + (IB_h - IB_b)
3(up) = IB_h + (IB_h - IB_b)*2

The same goes for the low lines

The indicator displays the initial balance with the correct session template. If you want to display the range bands you would need to add some lines, that is to modify the code. I will put in on my to-do-list, but it won't probably be tomorrow.

not sure if this will be of any help ... but it calculates the initial balance and the extensions... it isnt just the initial balance bands ... but thanks for the vid i was watching something by these guys the other day ... cost of their course is 8,800$ ... a bit steep but 100% satisfaction ... that has to be an industry record lol ...

attached is the imarketprofile with initial balance stuff

should look a bit like this : 2011-02-28_1701 - chinapassage's library

IB Range Bands Indicator for NT7

I have added the indicator in the download section. It will only work with an appropriate session template, which plots a session break at the beginning of the RTH session. You can set the initial balance to transparent, if you just need the bands.

Update Initial Balance Range Bands V33

Have updated the Initial Balance Range Bands indicator to version V33.

The updated version V33 uses the new signature of GetNextBeginEnd() and can only be used with NT 7.0.1000.5 and later.

You only need to update, if you use the indicator on high resolution charts built from ticks, such as tick, range and volume charts. The updated indicator can be found here:

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
