Looking for a simple TOS indicator to help plot trade plan levels manually on any chart it's applied to. For instance, res zone 2872-2874 would create an 8 tick zone band. Have some Ninja tools like Acme trade plan and another but can't find anything similar for TOS.

Anyone?
Thanks in advance.

should be pretty easy...

plot top = 2874;
plot bottom = 2872;

DefineGlobalColor("Bullish", Color.blue);
DefineGlobalColor("Bearish", Color.black);
AddCloud(top, bottom, globalColor("Bullish"), globalColor("Bullish"));

Thank you. Will give that a go. Hoping to find a tool that allows for updating all trade plan levels of interest and plot colors but maybe it's not so easy to work this way in TOS.

Without knowing how you find these levels, it's impossible to code anything.

Sorry. Wasnít clear. I donít want it to find the levels. Just plot the bands at the specified prices. Iíd manually enter the prices. The other way it works is they are read from a text file.

Iíll post a pic of how it works on the other platform. I expected it to be easy to find for TOS but apparently not.

Just to follow up here's what I'm trying to find a substitute for:



What this does is just give a way to plot bands at specified levels. In this case you can assign a color and an alert but anything to just get levels easily added to the chart and updated as needed.

The script you provided worked great for getting that level on the chart. Thanks for that. Seems like if I could work out a quick way to adjust the price level I could add multiple scripts to the chart and get very close.

Thanks all.

okay then we change them to inputs then when you click on your indicator gear icon you can change the levels easily without going into the code

you would just keep adding to it for more levels

input res1 = 2874;
input sup1 = 2872;

DefineGlobalColor("Bullish1", Color.blue);
DefineGlobalColor("Bearish1", Color.black);
AddCloud(res1, sup1, globalColor("Bullish1"), globalColor("Bullish1"));

input res2 = 2880;
input sup2 = 2876;

DefineGlobalColor("Bullish2", Color.blue);
DefineGlobalColor("Bearish2", Color.black);
AddCloud(res2, sup2, globalColor("Bullish2"), globalColor("Bullish2"));

No problem. The alert is fairly easy as well. If/when I get some time I'll post in it in here.

You could also just use

input level1 = 1000;
input level2 = 1100;
input level3 = 1200;
input level4 = 1300;
input level5 = 1400'
input level6 = 1000;
input level7 = 1100;
input level8 = 1200;
input level9 = 1300;
input level10 = 1400;

DefineGlobalColor("Bullish", Color.blue);
DefineGlobalColor("Bearish", Color.black);
AddCloud(level1, level2, globalColor("Bullish"), globalColor("Bullish"));
AddCloud(level3, level4, globalColor("Bullish"), globalColor("Bullish"));
AddCloud(level5, level6, globalColor("Bullish"), globalColor("Bullish"));
AddCloud(level7, level8, globalColor("Bullish"), globalColor("Bullish"));
AddCloud(level9, level10, globalColor("Bullish"), globalColor("Bullish"));

Even better! Thanks so much. Beats the heck out of having to draw them each manually and adjust.

One question - if I want 2 colors was that the intent of the bullish bearish colors? Not sure how to work with that.

Thanks again. Huge help and much appeciated.


**edit: I think I figured this out. Thanks.
