Description

It'd be great if you allowed OHLC Bars to be styled red and green similar to candlesticks. Based on if the stock finishes the bar up or down. This adds a heap of extra visual information for those of us who like OHLC.

Note that you can get this functionality by coding your own PaintBar-style indicator. Here's some code that I created a while ago to do just this:

Inputs:
UpColor( White ),
DnColor( Red ) ;
Variables:
PBColor( 0 ) ;

PBColor = IFF( Close > Open, UpColor, DnColor ) ;
PlotPaintBar( high, low, open, close, "", PBColor ) ;


However, I agree that it would be better to have this as a built-in option, rather than require a separate study.

That code had some formatting problems. Here it is again:
Inputs:
UpColor( White ),
DnColor( Red ) ;
Variables:
PBColor( 0 ) ;
PBColor = IFF( Close > Open, UpColor, DnColor ) ;
PlotPaintBar( high, low, open, close, "", PBColor ) ;

Ugh -- sorry for the double-post.
