Extend ZigZag Highs and Lows indefinitely in ThinkorSwim?



@J007RMC Do you have any scripts for a scan that would show a high/low daily candle?


@tomsk Would you be able to make a scan for this script? Looking for highs/lows on daily scans.

@kshires4 I'm sorry I am not a coder.

Greatly appreciate your setting this up. I'm finding the indicator very useful in conjunction with the TMO.
I was able to resolve the error issue.
What was the error fix? Im getting an error as well with this scan


Anyone have a scan for the following indicator:

# Swing High and Swing Low

# 11.18.2019
# As requested by chillc15 I have modified [USER=1174]@RobertPayne[/USER] code to include SwingHigh
# points which are now plotted in CYAN with the swing high points painted in PINK.
# So now you have both swing high and low on your charts

# change candle colors just to make it easier to see what we are working with
AssignPriceColor(if swingLow then Color.cyan else if swingHigh then Color.mageNTA else Color.current);
# End Swing High and Swing Low
The scan would be when it is a swing low.

Wouldn't that be great. Scan for the Swing low as it happens, and buy, then make infinite money.
