Alternative Intra-bar Price Movement Assumptions

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

Support alternative Intra-bar Price Movement Assumptions as described below:
If the difference (distance) between Opening price and High is smaller or equal to difference (distance) between Closing price and High, the intra-bar price movement is assumed to be in the order of Open-High-Low-Close. Otherwise, it is assumed to be in the order of Open-Low-High-Close.

For example with O=1356, H=1360, L=1340, C=1357
Using the original assumptions, it will be: Open-High-Low-Close, total distance traveled: 4+20+17=41
Using alternative assumption: High-Open = 4, High-Close = 3, so it will be Open-Low-High-Close. Total distance traveled = 16+20+3=39

Alternative assumption in another words, takes the price movement order which travels the shortest distance.

In the alternative assumption, if (High-Open == High-Close) then the original assumption could be used.

Thanks Orad, this is a good feature request. It would be great if we can, for example, program our own intra-bar price movements since that would also allow for personal preferences.
