One different question

After doing what TJ said, I also needed to set the Visual Order as Send Back to see the bars. Anyway it is ok.

However, once after this indicator is on the chart, I happen to recompile it (just hit spacebar and delete it). Then all the formattings revert back to the default ones.

How can I sustain the settings(plot type, colour, weight and so on)?

Check the "Use as Default" box,
then save the chart.

Re: a colour beetween Bollinger Band Up and BB Down

Hello,

in the new Version 7.4 the Candles are not to see, because the Bollinger Bands cover the candles.

Have anyone an idea to show the candles within the colour Bands?

Best regards

Your problem has nothing to do with new Version 7.4

Right click on chart,

Select Visual Order.

Re: a colour beetween Bollinger Band Up and BB Down

This seems like a good feature for MC to add, the ability to easily "fill in" the space between two averages (or two trendlines for that matter), like they do in NT Trader..
A function that we could call like "fillspace" that would add color between 2 lines with a minimum of code..
