High and Low of the First Hour


How can I highlight the first hour bar?

Is it possible to create a indicator that create a line on the high and low of the first hour of the session?

PTC Man,

Here is an indicator that will plot a line for the high and low of the first hour (assuming your first hour ends at 10:30 a.m.) on an hourly chart. You can change it to a dashed line which might look better on your chart.

{plots the high and low at 10:30 for this day on an hourly chart}

High and Low of the First Hour



Good Trading,

Joe J.


There must be something wrong because because I can´t see this indicator in any chart.

I ploted in a 60 min chart, 30 min chart and 5 min chart and nothing happen.

I change the hour to 1530 because here in Portugal, 1030 NY time is 1530 (0330 PM) PT time and I still can't see the indicator on the chart.

What appears to be the problem?

Thank you


First, this indicator was only set-up to work on the hourly charts. The formula would have to be changed for 30 min, 5 min, etc.

Second, make sure you have all four lines of code (the last line should be L1st;) in your formula.

Finally, just double-check that your first hourly bar reads 1530 - this should be the end of the first hour of trading, not when it starts.

I tested this out before I sent it to you and it does work on my charts.

Good Trading,

Joe J.
