I'd like to color panel 2 candle bars based on my moving average study (T3), so where you see the up/down line color, I'd like the candlestick body coloring to match. Having some trouble figuring out how to do this.

Maybe, but it seems quite complicated for just coloring based on rising/falling of a moving average, right?

Just a heads up, I am working with a few trader/programmer to build up the PROX Bars and some new Cumulative Delta tools for Sierra Charts users. I like what SC has developed for Delta tools and it is good to see some additional charting options advancing for Delta based traders.

Yup, have been using it and working with Anthony. He's done a great job on getting this done.

Hi everyone, I know this is a very old post - but I'm looking to add the T3 indicator to the cumulative delta indicator in region 2 of my chart. When I add it, it does not turn out like Mike's image. It's basically a flat horizontal line. Can anyone help me get this setup properly? Thanks in advance!

Ignore the previous comment. I didn't have the CD in the "Based on" drop-down set. It's working now.
