Bar Countdown Timer for bar more than 60min

Postby Traderji » 18 Jul 2012

Is it possible to add/show the timer for bars greater than 60 mins? It is just silly that timer only will show when there is less than 60 minutes remaining on the bar.

I trade off the 4 Hour chart and it is no use to me knowing when the last 60 minutes are remaining. It is useful to know exactly how old the bar is in order to gauge the strength of a move or retracement.

Please remove this arbitrary and useless limitation.

Hello Traderji,

Countdown appears for all tick/contract resolutions, 60 minutes/1 hour resolution and lower.

At the moment that is not possible to show the countdown for resolutions greater than 60 minutes.

Alternatively you can use an indicator to show the countdown. There are a number of codes available on the web. (I think there are a couple of them here too, but I do not have the links. You can do a search to find out).
