    darmbk,

    This is to do with your condition for the color.
    You are testing if the rising is true or not.

    However, since you are plotting on a smaller timeframe the plot will plot for each bar. The first bar for the color is the start of the higher time frame. What you would want to do is create a bool variable that you can change to true or false and use that as a switch for your coloring.

    if(Rising(Plot1))
    {
    PlotColors[0][0] = Color.LimeGreen;
    stillRising = true;
    }

    else if(stillRising)
    {
    PlotColors[0][0] = Color.LimeGreen;
    }

  • Colouring indicator derived from secondary time frame

    Hi,

    I am plotting a higher time frame SMA on a chart of lower time frame. For example, a 10 period SMA on a 1 min chart (see link and attached plot http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/f...ad.php?t=44451)

    I want to colour the plot of SMA green at times when it is rising. This is a well worn problem but there is an extra step I am missing now that I am plotting from a secondary time frame which is longer than the primary one. The code below does not quite do it. As you can see in the plot, I only get green for the first bar of the primary (shorter) time frame. Can someone see what I am missing here?

    Code:
    if(BarsInProgress ==0)
    			{
                    Plot1.Set(SMA(BarsArray[1], Period)[0]);
    				
    				if(Rising(Plot1))
    					PlotColors[0][0] = Color.LimeGreen;
    Cheers,
    darmbk.
