Can anybody here create an indicator that will identify a day with the narrowest range out of the last 4 or 7 days? This is used by a lot of pro traders and hedge fund guys who like to trade breakouts of these days' ranges.

If you do it I will be happy to share what I've learned about them so far, but I need more data to look at to confirm what I've seen so far.

I think will do what you want i originally made this indicator to show inside outside candles however if you set it to Daily (1440) it will show the last 7 Daily Candles and gives the number of pips each has moved so it is pretty easy to see which day has the most narrow range.

excellent work cja!

am I correct in assuming that the shaded areas are based on the previous days action?

Anything outside the shaded area is considered an extreme point?

Please correct me if my thinking is wrong about the indicator.

Shaded areas

excellent work cja!

Please correct me if my thinking is wrong about the indicator.

The shaded areas are the Open/Close if the Open is lower than the Close the color is Green and if the Open is higher than the Close the color is Red the outer rectangle is the High and Low for the candle. In short the Shaded areas are the body of a normal candle and the outer rectangle represents the wicks, if you go into the inputs you will find you can bring up the "Legend" which will tell you what the other colors mean, you can also enlarge or reduce the text to suit your needs or remove it entirely. Enjoy.

count the number of pips between 00:00gtm to 2:00 for example

adding multable time sessions

Hello cja , for six month i'm searching this kind of indicator finally i founded this indicator that made it by yours. From what i can see from the indicator it seem that the indicator will only show the range for only 7 days . Could you make it for all day ? i mean from beginning to the end of data that i have . I know that you're a busy man , but if you could make it i will really appreciate it. thank you and sorry for my bad english
