Hi Apprentice
Been playing with this all day now and works great.
Only one thing I would change, that is when I have say a 90 minute chart the data range only goes back a week or so, or 166 xm90 candles, tried changing the range input back but this seems to be the max.
This means the range is stuck to the left so no way like this to have the trading action in the middle of the chart or to the right, which is how I view my charts while trading.
The hourly is not too bad, I can go back 836 candles, same with the daily, I can go back a few years with the daily, so the only gripe is with the minute conversion.
Tried altering the code but got into a pickle, so yes apart from this one thing the extension is great and better than the mt4 period converter as do not require breeder charts etc..
thanks in advance
regards

Unfortunately these are Data retrieval limits of TS.
If you use the minute chart, m1 is not optimal as Base.
H1 is a much better solution.
Unfortunately, you can not have 90 minutes with a 60 minute base.

Will try to find a solution.

Try this version.
U can have any time frame as Base.
For 90 minutes, you can select 30 minutes as a base, Number Of Elements will be 3.

Hi Apprentice
Yes that works, all the range that is needed now.
The only thing is the tab label is too long again.
I will change and shorten my own version to suit myself as I know how to do this, but just letting you know for the codebase version.
Apart from that it is great.
Nice work as usual.
Thanks very much
cheers

Hi Apprentice
This is great indicator extension.
Last thing with this is when using the ruler tool to count pips the decimal point is in the wrong place compared to normal charts, that is, when measuring 10.3 pips the ruler will show 103 instead of 10.3 or measuring 103.7 pips will read 1.0037 instead of 103.7 pips.
Everything else is great thanks.
regards

This sounds a bit of a simplistic question but where do you locate this indicator once you have installed it?

It's not in the list of indicators but I can view it in - Manage Extensions. I see it has a different icon one of a line graph are these located separately and if so, where abouts might I lay my hands on the blighter's?




TIA
