Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

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.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Need a little help on Sierra chart

hi

I have this indicator that i managed to put together

It is a simple program that draws the High and the Low of the day

1 issue that i need help with as I am new to C++

the lines are drawn ok to start but then move in a stair mode instead of a complete redraw of the line at the new level

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

If you need only High and the Low of the day
then SC already has built in study for that

To draw the High and Low of the day, use the Daily OHLC study.
Set the 'Reference Days Back' to your choice. If this is set to 0, you can also set 'Graph High and Low Historically' to Yes and it will draw the developing H and L.
Then set the Draw Styles of Open and Close to Ignore.
