I put together this indicator to show where the inside bid and inside ask is on a chart. The idea came from a couple of different indicators found on the TS forum. This indicator will plot lines for the inside bid and inside ask on the "space to the right" of the chart. The difference (spread) is also plotted below the low (and slightly to the right, however, the exact position of the text is a work in progress, but I realize that some may prefer a different location). See the screen shots for examples. I've tested this on 5 minute and 6 range charts. However, this indicator may not be useful for big time frame charts where it's not easy to see the small range of the spread.
I don't have multicharts, so I have no idea if this works on that platform.
