Not quite right paint bar help


Sorry sylvester. They won't allow me to put in a picture. I need the bars to paint when it closes on the extreme. High and low. I do have a picture of it.

not exactly sure what you mean.

if you want the bars to paint when the bars close, then you need to set "calculate on bar close" to true.

see attached picture.

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
