Hello,

Is an "indicator" that displays parallel closes to close, and parallel highs to high.
No interest as an indicator, I just want to know your ideas for simplifying and factorization code.

Uncoded: How don't display the highs when the timeframe is less than the daily timeframe.

I like your code, it is very simple and functional. Thank you very much.

I think what you want is to scale the screen. You can do this with ChartGetInteger and ChartSetInteger commands. They handle everything having to do with windows and subwindows.

There is a long list ENUM_CHART_PROPERTY_INTEGER wherein is included the scaling.

Greetings and I hope I've helped.
