We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

bar number indicator


I would like to have a Bar Number indicator, much like that of Al Brooks (BBarNumbers), but I want to be able to define the start and end of my own trading hours. For example, I want to trade CL from 9am to 10:30am EST using 1M chart, so I want the 9:01am bar to be #1, 9:04am bar to be #4, etc., and no more numbering after 10:30am. Also I can specify as in that BBarNumbers indicator, First bar number, Display every n'th bar, and Increment every n bars.

Searched a few indicators in the forum but couldn't find any that can achieve what I described. If you are aware of such an indicator, or know how to make use of existing ones, please kindly let me know.

Thank you very much!
