This is the first release of my Time Remaining indicator for MC, which displays the approximate time left for the current bar, just to the right of that bar.
Ultimately this looks something like:
The indicator will plot how many seconds are left until the current bar ends. This should be taken as an approximate value, since there is no possibility to ensure the indicator runs every second...
Basically the way the indicator works is by displaying how many seconds are left every time it is called (every tick), so on highly active markets (such as the ES, DAX etc.) this will usually mean the indicator is pretty accurate...
NOTE: This indicator has only been tested with the latest beta of MC (1.90.644.1126).
The indicator has the following Inputs:
- FontName - Font to use to draw the text, I use, "ProggyTiny", which can be downloaded here: http://www.lowing.org/fonts/
- FontSize - ... Guess...
- TZOffset - The amount of offset in hours from the computers clock to the chart's time, you will have to check by how much is the computer's clock is offseted from the charts time (depends on you settings...)... can be positive/negative
- DisplayTickOffset - By how much should the indicator be offset to the right, in a 5 minute chart, setting DisplayTickOffset to 1, will plot the indicator 5 minutes to the right (i.e. 1 bar right)
