    Import text or excel file onto chart

    I would like to import support and resistance lines/zones onto an existing chart as an indicator using a file (Excel, CVS, text, etc.).

    How can this be done? How can I add color to the zone and text?

    Thanks,
    Ron

    Hello ronhb107,

    To read data from a file, we have the following example for CSV, however, this approach can be molded into the format your data requires.

    To draw on the chart, you have many options for this. You can use the existing drawing tools:

    You can also use Plots if you wanted to make Regions. two plots and the Draw.Region tool could be used for htis.

    You can also view the SampleCustomRender indicator if you would like to do more advanced drawing.



    I look forward to being of further assistance.
