    Colour bars based off bar high/low

    Hi there,

    I would like to apply the below rules to colour each of the bars in a chart. Is it possible to do this somehow in NT7? (please see screenshot).

    If Bar HIGH < (ie below) SMA10 --> make bar green
    If Bar LOW > (ie above) SMA10 --> make bar red
    For anything else --> make bar grey

    Thanks,
    Michelle

    Hello michellepace,

    Thanks for your post.

    Yes, this is possible through Ninjascript programming. Here is an example using your example:

    if (High[0] < SMA(10)[0])
    {
    BarColor = Color.Green;
    }
    else if (Low[0] > SMA(10)[0])
    {
    BarColor = Color.Red;
    }

    else
    {
    BarColor = Color.Gray;
    }

      Great, thanks Paul. Your code worked perfectly - I just had to swap the green and red around as I got it incorrect in the description of my requirement.

      In case anyone else ever needs this, attached is the indicator script I wrote. You can specify what Period of SMA you want to use.

      Basically if the bars are green you know you're bullish trending up, if red then bearish trending down and grey is neutral.

      Cheers,
      Michelle
