  • Range Bars

    I would like to request an option be added to Range bars. I would like to have a new bar created when a chosen range has been reached, "not" when it has been exceeded. This is how Range bars were originally implemented by their creator Vincente Nicolellis.

    It may seem a trivial difference, but it actually has a big effect on how alerts, and stops/entries, etc. are triggered. Also, it actually makes for much cleaner signals, at least in my trading systems.

    It would seem to be a very simple addition, and I think many would find it useful.

      Thanks for the suggestion.

      This does sound like a simple change, however our Range Bars are now calculated on the server-side starting with 11.4 (due out this month). We've moved to a server-side implementation to dramatically speed up the delivery of these chart types (includes all Tick-based intervals). So while on the surface, this seems like a simple change, it will require changes throughout the system starting at the server, the middle tier libraries and ultimately then down to the software. It's a solid idea, but it will take some time to estimate, compare against other enhancements that are in line, and then implement.
