Three bar reversal

Happy holiday everyone , I was wondering if anyone has a fix for this indicator .

Its the 3 bar reversal and its really useful but when I open NT I have to manually adjust the colors everytime . Also , if I have turn on reversals = true the reversals wont plot in real time .

Just means the colors aren't properly serialized. You can look at almost any example like SuperTrend, VolumeGraph, etc in the Downloads section and find the code to serialize the colors if you want to make the changes.

Or, just modify the code to your liking (using your preferred colors). Then re-load your chart/re-load NT, it will bring up what is compiled as default in the code.


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.

I think this one is "fixed". I don't have any problems with it.
