I am looking for a SIMPLE indicator that I can specify certain Key times that will plot a user-definied horizontal line across the chart along with that period's high and low.

this is like an opening range indicator but one where I can input different times according to my liking. I DON"T want to mess around with session templates.....all i want to do is select a start and end time and have the indicator plot the horizontal lines ( i can choose the type of line and color, ect) for the trading session or better yet for a user-defined period of time such xAmount of hours into the future.

I tried all the 'opening range' indicators here and it's not working for me, especially they are convoluted and I don't want to mess around with session templates. It should be easy, simply to input a start and end time and it will plot the line and I don't want a colored region between the lines either.

This will be perfect for those liking a 1min, 5min, 15min, 30min and or 60min price opening/high/low levels

Any ideas?

hello Cory,

Yes I have tried that and it's not doing what I would like. It's only plotting the opening price and extending it to the end time on that single level.
