I have some pretty basic thinkscript code that is highly effective for /ES trading, but I cannot get it to work because I have minimal knowledge of thinkscript.

If anyone has the ability, I would gladly share the code with you if you can get it to work.

Won't let me DM for another 60min

Is there a way to have the period for the profile adjustable? Like can we set it up to switch back and forth between last n bars or 1 day, etc?

Sure.
Here you go.

You bet.
Granted, I already had most of the logic, and yours was sound.
Just needed some minor things added to it.

Hope it helps.

Hi, any way you can help explain what this script is plotting, it looks interesting but not fully understanding the usage.


THanks,
