Is there someway to identify 4H candle closes on a 15M chart that is not too obtrusive ?
You may use this indicator (attached). It is the way to understand when MTF indicators may re-paint the past and why.
Besides we have two good threads about the candles:
- support/resistance for candles: original thread with discussion and some indicators.
- everything about candles, inside candles and custom candles: indicators.
Thank you, you are consistently helpful.
Do you run a 4H chart somewhere in the back ground or don't you have one open?
I made myself a "Voice" that tells me 2m before the candle closes......."4 hours up"
Let me know.
I opened M15 chart and atach indicator setted for H4 (240).
But I had H4 chart opened already. I don't know it is important or not ...
Yes, I have the same indicator, but I just prefer to use the Grid-indicator for less hassles.
However, for this voice idea, you need to have a dedicated 4H chart. I will gladly share my "home-made" indicator with you.
I have coded up this indicator for you, it appears to run alright as i have had it working today and everything seems to update as it should, you have several options as per the screenshots.
1/ Simple display in standard Comments or Colored Text
2/ A full display in Standard Comments or Colored Text
3/The Colored Text can be placed anywhere on the chart and the Text size can also be altered
2 Screenshots showing indicator on a full chart and 10 & 15 point Text
Colors for each line can be altered if required
extern bool Show_Simple_Text = false;
extern bool Show_Standard_Comments = false;
extern bool Show_Colored_TEXT = true;
extern int Text_Size = 15;
extern int Shift_Text_UP_DN = 0;
extern int Shift_Text_Left_Right = 0;
extern color Title_Color = SteelBlue;
extern color Prev_4Hr_Text = DarkKhaki;
extern color Next_Text = Coral;
extern color Broker_Time = Peru;
extern color CountDown_Time = Gold;
Sorry I missed your post way back when.....I still wanted to thank for helping all of us here.
cja Candle Remaining Time Indicator
Hi, cja ... excellent candle countdown timer! Thanks for developing/sharing.
Do you have (or do you know of) a similar indicator that takes the full candle time from the time period at which the chart is set .... i.e. a countdown timer that counts down from 15 minutes on a 15M chart, from 1 hour on an H1 chart, from 4 hours on an H4 chart, etc.?
HI New Digital,
Is there Alerts here in this custom candle ?
