Thanks: 16 given, 17 received

When I started trading Forex I moved to other platforms. But at the end I came back to my favorite one. So, I wanted the bid ask lines primarily to avoid entering orders around news and wait until the spread calms down. It took me some effort since I am not a programmer and I could not find that indicator but eventually here it is. No picture here because it needs live data

The loop is pointless and not required.

 
Code
_SECTION_BEGIN("BidAskSpread");
Bid = GetRTData( "Bid" );
Ask = GetRTData( "Ask" );
Offset = 20;
Lastbar = BarCount - 1;
style = styleLine | styleLine | styleNoLabel | styleNoTitle;
Plot( LineArray( Lastbar - Offset, Bid, Lastbar, Bid, 1 ), "Bid", colorRed, style, Null, Null, Offset, 1, width = -10 );
Plot( LineArray( Lastbar - Offset, Ask, Lastbar, Ask, 1 ), "Ask", colorBlueGrey, style, Null, Null, Offset, 1, width );
_SECTION_END();
