  • Hello Frederik,
    Thank you for coding and sharing this highly useful study.
    Would it be possible to add a parameter to define the ending time of the parallel rays?
    For example, the user may want to only extend the bars from the defined opening range until 1 hour later, or until midnight, or some other variation.
    This would allow the lines to be used without unnecessarily cluttering the chart beyond the time at which that particular strategy is no longer applicable.
    Thank you for your consideration,
    Mike T
