Hi,
On mine the histogram bar is/was switching back and forth between red and green. It did it on the Usd/Jpy as well. I was wondering if it would change color mid bar so I went down to the 1 minute bar as I could watch them open and close much quicker rather than waiting days on end for it to maybe happen and I caught it. I then thought it might be just because of the volatilty of the small time frame but then when I went back to the daily charts I did have a red bar to begin with on the two pairs mentioned (so I was trading short), but it went to green, back to red and now they're green again. It's definitely switching colors depending on where price is compared to the open of the candle. I'm using a Dukascopy mt4 platform and Ikon Royal and its changing on both of them. Thanks

bredin do you look at W1 aswell or just D1?

i.e. Longs above W1 and shorts below W1

or simply longs and shorts with D1

or something else?

Whats your method exactly?

I've just been watching the G/U on the 15m t/f as price is going up and down across the open. No fluctuations in the indi colour here.

Edit: Showing an overall S/R of 77.9% by the way.

I may have a font missing - the up/down arrows are showing as the letters "p" and "q".

Edit Again: I'm noticing on the G/U that the II_VBM is more accurate than the II_MADX, especially on higher t/f.
Is price closing higher or lower than something? Simple yet powerful question. ..MO

altima,
Ive just noticed a repaint on mine on a M1 bar, which is odd, since the MAs use only the open price, not the close. anyway what I observed is AFTER the new bar started the second last bar changed color, and I dont know why.... Im going to go look at code and see If i can see it....

to stop the bars fluctuating put this line
barstart = Time[0];
right after the line that says
if (barstart < Time[0]){

Ive located the repaint, its in the MODE_EMA. if this is changed to MODE_SMA, the hitrate drops to 66%ish but there is no repaint.

edit: looks like SMA repaints, will keep watching tho....

damn. sorry about that guys :(

is 66% an edge?

The font is WingDings 3, you can change the font and arrow codes in the inputs.

I'm seeing it now watching the G/U m15 on both the 9.30 and 9.45 bars. The II_VBM changes colour. Sorry bredin.

ok, the EMA should have been the cause of that, but it also repaints with an SMA, which I dont get since there is no weighting on a SMA, and at the new bars recalculation the values should be the same....

anyway I'll take a look at the code, and if anyone else has any Ideas please let me know :)

There is something very hoky going on with iMA..... the values that are generated for the current bar are NOT THE VALUES going into the previous bar on a newbar, thus the repaint..... I KNOW the open prices for each bar are not changing, so what the hell is happening? I might have to manually calculate the MAs....

might be bed time too :)
