Is there an indicator that will just display a box of a specific size?

I'm looking for an indicator that will simply plot a box, or range of above/below current price. I just want this to see where my stop would be if I entered a trade at that current price. So something with a user input that allows one to set the size of the box.

Does anyone know of such an indie before I try to create one?

Thx, but I dont think those are what I need.

You know of that horiztontal price line indicator just plots a line at the current/last price traded. Well I am looking for something that pretty much will add/subtract from current price by a user input amount. JUst so I can visually see how far away a set number of tics is from current price.

the indicator already draws hi/ low box around current price, all you have to so is substitute hi/ low value with your own values.
