Works very well BUT if I add :
protected override void Initialize()
{
Add(Instrument.FullName,PeriodType.Tick, 50); // [1]
}

Check the BarsInProgress variable, 0 for main series, higher for added series.

Thanks Ratfink

For everybody the typical answer is :
if (BarsInProgress == 0 && FirstTickOfBar) "serie of chart"
{}
if (BarsInProgress == 1 && FirstTickOfBar) "add serie 1"
{}
etc.....

Hi, Thanks for your replay. Am not a programmer, so i really don't know how to modify indicators. can you please help me
modify following indicator to paint an arrow in the first tick of the opening bar once the bar changes color? blue arrow for up and red arrow for down.
