Newbie Questions

I am a ThinkorSwim customer and I have a couple of questions about their charting software. Does anyone know if I can do the following:


highlight mulitple bars/candlesticks on the chart
is there a way to bracket prices with the pointer so that I can find the lowest low or highest high over an X day rolling period?

For example, is it possible to highlight a certain date and automatically have a trading day x days in the past simultaneously highlighted for easier viewing/location of high/low breakouts?

Thanks

Hello,

I'm a newbie also but in the manual there is an example of a highest high code. Not exactly what you want but its a start. It is in the functions file under look and feel and add chart bubble. Hope this helps you.

Are you talking about the 54 page pdf? I did a keyword search for high and bubble and didnt see anything like what you were mentioning?

What page of the manual are you referring to?
