Category:

Im trying to create a custom column on my watch list that will tell me how many candles in a row meet a certain criteria The counter would naturally start at 1 and keep going every 2 hr candle close it keeps meeting the criteria

The criteria is:  DMI+ > 25    DMI – < 20 and ADX is > 18

Any help on this would be appreciated

Just add it to a new custom chart study and adjust the style to "plot values at low". Should work fine but I haven't tried it. (Pete Hahn at June 29, 2020 7:31 pm) i dont know how to adjust the style to "plot values at low" (Ralph Calabro at June 30, 2020 5:58 am) Im trying to get the numbers over the candles on top of the chart (Ralph Calabro at June 30, 2020 6:05 am) Sorry but that is not even an option. Best you can get is value at low or value at high. This is a setting available to all plot on all chart studies.

I have a limited amount of time available for free solutions in the Q&A forum and going back to modify code to meet changing specifications requires more time than I allow myself to spend.
