Opening Range Indicator (w/ Indicator Input)

Hi all,

I'm trying to come up with an opening range indicator. I know there are already countless ones out there (and here), but none of which I've tried so far work with an indicator as an input.

I've already coded an opening range indicator which works for price given a start and end time but it just won't work when using an indicator (e.g. SMA) as an input. The problem I'm facing is that Times[x][0] doesn't work with indicator values. As such I'm thinking I might need to add the indicator as a DataSeries, but am struggling to make it work.

If anyone can share some insight I would be grateful, and would also be happy to share the finished product here on futures.io (formerly BMT) in case anyone has some use for it like I do.

Thanks

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)

Have tried both their OR indicators in that post and the ones in the downloads section but unfortunately they don't work with indicators either. Will seek out their help on that thread though!

Thanks!

Why are you using an indicator as input? Wouldn't that throw off the exact range?

Well I have an indicator which estimates the fair value of a security based on the movements of two to three other securities and plots the premium/discount to this estimate of fair value.

I am playing around with a strategy which is based on a breakout of the range of the premium/discount from the first hour's range. Right now it does this by checking the value of the indicator c.f. the previous high/low attained on every OnBarUpdate and updating the high/low values as necessary. At the end of the defined Opening Range, the high/low values are ready for use.

However, I'm thinking that if I could turn this into an indicator, it would be much more flexible.
