Overnight H L plot?

Hi,

I have my charts set up like this.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


I'd like to automatically add the overnight GLOBEX sessoin high and low when the market opens but keep an RTH timeframe chart on screen. Does anyone know of an indicator that will do that? Using Ninja 7.

Thanks
keymoo

The problem here is that the overnight high and low can only be calculated from the night session data. If you exclude that data from your chart, it is not obvious to plot overnight high and low, unless you open a second chart and then enter the values manually.

What do you need your RTH session template for?

What I want to do is only show RTH prices, and RTH sessions, but I want a line drawn automatically showing the overnight high and low from the globex session similar to the Y-Low and Y-High I have on there now. If I could have something that said O-High, O-Low or something that would be great. I'm not interested in the price action of the Globex session, only the high and low of it. Do you know of anything that can do that?

Indicators usually perform calculations from data loaded with the chart. If you don't load overnight data, then the indicator cannot calculate indicator values from that data.

No data - no indicator values. This is rather simple.

you can color the background of Globex session to the same color as the foreground so that you don't see it.

I did write one for TradeStation a few years ago. Maybe I will try and code up my first NT indicator, but I thought someone else might have already done it. I can't see any reason why the overnight data cannot be loaded in to NT and overlaid onto the RTH chart with the data series made transparent. It should then be fairly easy to work out the Globex High and Low.

Or maybe I'm missing something fundamental in the way Ninjatrader works?

You can do that. The indicator already exists. Load a secondary Data Series with an ETH session template on your chart, then set that Data Series to transparent.

Then apply the anaOpeningRangeV38, which displays the Globex High and Low calculated from the overnight session. Set the opening range itself to transparent, if you do not need it.

The result is shown below. You will get what you look for, but the hidden Data Series will create a huge gap on your chart.

Speaking of this topic, how difficult is it to shade the background for the overnight session with a different color? I have looked but strangely can't seem to find something like this. I would like to be able to shade the top to bottom of the chart, though shading just the high to low of price would be okay too. It must work on non-time-based periodicities too..

If you have an indicator that has generated the values, you can shade any areas with DrawRegion() or DrawRectangle().

The problems arrive if you have several different colours, then you need to play with the opacity or define additional colors, where the shades overlap.

Example below, showing pivot range, opening range and night session range.

For the opening range indicator I had only shaded the opening range, but not the night session to avoid two many shades.
