Something odd is happening. As I compress the chart (add more data) the indicator seems to calculate further back, like its repainting further back in time and not displaying the most recent signal.

yes, it'll happen because FXTS2 limit the amount of data available to the indicator.
I don't think it's possible to fix in the code.
The only way to fix it is to use higher timeframes which show all the data needed.

Alright, thanks for giving it a go. I don't think that it'll be useful in the strategy I'm using because of the way it paints.

I'm wondering though, would the same problem arise if you programmed the targets algorithm for a standard RSI indicator, buy when RSI crosses above 50, sell when RSI crosses below? (See picture) If so, could you program this for me (and include the vertical line option).

How we will calculate Stop/Target levels?

Well, what I was thinking was that you would base the stop relative to the last high or low from when the indicator conditions are met. For example, in the image, the RSI crosses below 50. The stop is placed at the most recent prior high and the target is set to a risk/reward of 1:1 (just as an example). This functionality would be similar to the way in which the PSAR Targets and Moving Average Target indicators work.

Is that possible with the RSI?

I also noticed that this indie doesn't seem to be calculating correctly. In the image, the RSI last crossed below 50 on 05/31, but the indicator is painting, real time, the close on 06/03 and is repainting in real time as the price fluctuates on the current intraday candle of 06/06.
