TOS Bar Charts HLC only - not OHLC

I am looking for thinkscript code that mimics everyday bar charts, with one exception...

HLC instead of OHLC. I would like to see HLC bar charts, with a little thicker line width.

So far, I have been unsuccessful. Can someone please help??

Suggestion: Put in a request for both HLC and thicker (or variable-width) lines to TOS through their support email.

The more requests for this, the more attention they will give to it.


If you trade only stocks, NinjaTrader (free) will use TDAmeritrade's data feed. It has the HLC and variable-width bar lines. Happy Holidays!

Unfortunately, Futures traders are left out in the cold. TDA's Futures data feed doesn't work with NinjaTrader.
