### Previous day time interval vs todays time interval

Hi.

I'd like some help here, please.

I have the following formula:

Code: Select all

`inputs:   todayStTime      (830),   todayEnTime      (900),   yesterdayStTime   (1430),   yesterdayEnTime   (1500);variables:   dayCounter      (0),   dayClose      (0),   dayOpen      (0),   //dayHigh      (-999999),   //dayLow      (+999999),   //prevDayHigh      (0),   //prevDayLow      (0),   //dayHigh      (0),   //dayLow      (0),   prevDayClose      (0),   prevDayOpen      (0),   prevClCounter      (0),   prevTradeDay      (false),   todayTradeDay      (false);  // confirms the beginning of the day with true/false conditionsif date <> date[1] then begin   prevTradeDay = true;   todayTradeDay = false;   dayCounter = dayCounter + 1;end;// resets the new day to give the previous day open time intervalif prevTradeDay then begin   if time = yesterdayStTime then begin      prevTradeDay = false;      prevDayOpen = Open;   end;end;// resets the new day to give today's open time intervalif todayTradeDay = false then begin   if time >= todayStTime then begin      todayTradeDay = true;      dayOpen = Open;   end;end;// resets the new day to give the previous day close time intervalif prevTradeDay then begin   if time = yesterdayEnTime then begin      prevTradeDay = false;      prevDayClose = close;   end;end;// resets the new day to give today's close time intervalif todayTradeDay = false then begin   if time = todayEnTime then begin      todayTradeDay = true;      dayClose = close;   end;end;plot1(DayOpen);//plot2(dayClose);plot13(prevDayOpen);//plot14(prevDayClose);`

As it is, plots today's open and yesterday open prices based on the time interval selected, but If I also plot today's and yesterday's close prices, these will be zero, though, if I remove the statements regarding the open prices, the close prices will be correctly plotted.

What am I doing wrong?

See images attached (I hope the guys solve this colour problem with the images when we try to save them within MC)
