Thank you. If you could attach the code, that would be great, if not that is fine as well. I have been started coded by my own. Not because I am a better coder than you, but I believe it is a good pratice to get it done by myself. I have some custom rules, in my head, what is not good for anyone else, but for me makes a lots of sense. So your code could be awsome to learn...
One more thing about the RTH, and ETH. There is no easy way to get ETH premarket lows, and highs right? I mean if I am using RTH session template, there is no way to get the Globex Low, and High? It would be very helpful to have it, and I dont know any easyway to get it... Do you have any idea to do this?
To catch the pre-session high and low, you need the data of that presession. If you exclude it from your chart via a RTH template, then you will not have the data. Therefore you need to use an ETH session template that covers the entire trading day.
To separate pre-session from the regular session, there are two possible approaches.
(1) you use a standard ETH template and enter a specific time of the day that reflects the start of the regular session, then use that time to cut off the high and low calculations
(2) alternatively you can use an ETH session template that comes with 3 sub-sessions (Globex session, regular session, evening session) and calculate high & low for each subsession
I have always used the second approach and saved those templates under instrument settings. This allows me to toggle between instruments without changing indicator settings, as each instrument will use its own session template and the Globex session will adapt itself as needed.
The following 2 users say Thank You to Fat Tails for this post:
Yip, it is pretty clear, you are using method (2), I have checked a lots of indicator from you. The only headache for me here, to hide the globex data. Is there any way to use the 3 session, but hide the bars, and the data from the globex session? Or there is no easy way to do that, and simply, just skip the logic, to terminate the bar, if it is a globex session?
Anyway, I have attached my first code. It is not a big deal, and I not a big programmer, but it is a start, with your help guys, so thank you!
(it is fully beta, without any customization option.)
Here is my next version of the indicator. It is useable only on 1M chart, with RTH only session to make sense.
There is a lots of lines (but there is no fib ), which ofc could be messy, if you dont know what you are looking for. For me it makes a lots of sense to take trades. I made a screenshot, just to better understanding
It is using WideRangeBar concept, and important levels: local highs lows, closes...
Once again It is never an entry signal, only a place to consider to take the trade...
