Price Ray MT4
Price Ray indicator is a utility that will enhance the way you trade. Primarily, it shows the Bid, Ask or Last price as a line ray which beams till the current candle, last visible chart candle or extended till the first candle. The enhanced features in this indicator provide information in an area where you focus most, right next to the current candle. You can select text to be shown above or below the Price ray. The indicator is fully customizable, allowing it to fit any strategy requirements.

The indicator allows the display of the following text above or below the price ray. Below are the options:
- Bid, Ask or Last Price.
- Current spread.
- The range and the body size for a defined time-frame candle in pips/points -> the range as HL (High-Low) and the body size as OC (Open-Close).
- The Candle Timer: a per second update of the time left for candle close (selected time-frame).
The indicator allows customisation of Line (extension, style, width and colour), Dot (enabled or not, dot size, shifting the dot and line ray to the left) and the Text (font, size and colour). You can choose whether the colour of Price Ray is constant, or it changes based on trend. Also, you can select the bullish or bearish colour for the trend.
The ideal way to determine a trend is to look at the chart with trend lines drawn on the highs and lows. Added to this, the strategy may include, to determine whether the current price is above or lower to opening price for a higher time-frame. Price Ray indicator changes the line ray colour based on bullish or bearish candle body of a selected time-frame. I have illustrated a strategy to trade based on the trend of a higher timeframe candle in the User Guide.
I have included a comprehensive Candle Timer with Price Ray. Candle timer displays remaining seconds to the close of a time-frame candle, either above or below a Price Ray. It triggers a notification alert irrespective of the selection of candle timer as a text. The indicator announces an alert at specified seconds before close of the current candle. You can select the alert as a pop-up or a bird chirping sound. There is an option to select from a list of notification sounds (Canary, Cardinal, Meadowlark, Owl, or a Rooster). I have included a button to enable or disable the notification sound. You may decide to disable the sound alert temporarily. It is also useful when the indicator is being used in multiple charts.
|Please note: |
- The display of "Last Price" depends on the availability of price feed (data) from the server.
- The indicator changes the Chart Properties (Function key - F8: Common tab) for enabling and disabling the default selected Price to be shown as the Line ray. You can change it when needed.
- The indicator will show any errors in the "Journal" and "Experts" tabs in the terminal/toolbox (Ctrl+T) window. Please check in case you encounter any errors.
