midpoint for the day

Is there a study that plots the midpoint for the day?
Can't find anything similar to this

I'm almost certain I had this a couple of months ago when I used Sierra but I just can't figure it out now.

Use the Daily OHLC study with these settings:

You can show the OHL if you want too, or hide them as here, showing only the midpoint:

Yes, this is it.
Many thanks Josh.

By the way, when selecting Round To Tick Size, shouldn't 1680.38 become 1680.50?

@josh Prior to this I was having to use the math studies to accomplish this, and because of that I was forced to keep a second, nearly identical chart open. Now I can eliminate this superfluous chart and free up some space.

Mad ups dawg!

@pismo10, the method described above correctly plots the 50%. Check your settings. It's good to know another way to do it though, @lemons.

50% level in purple.
