Hi I am printing the High and Low of the first candle when the market open. I am not getting the right values. Can you please let me know what I am doing wrong..

input rangeHighPrice = high;
input rangeLowPrice = low;


def rg = AbsValue(rangeHighPrice - rangeLowPrice);

plot range = rg;
range.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HISTOGRAM);

range.SetDefaultColor(Color.DARK_GREEN);

def NineThirty = SecondsFromTime(930) > 0;
def TwelveOclock = SecondsFromTime(1200) > 0;
def MarketOpen = NineThirty > 0 && NineThirty [1] <= 0;
def LunchTime = TwelveOclock > 0 && TwelveOclock[1] <= 0;


AddVerticalLine(MarketOpen,if MarketOpen then “High:” + high +" Low:" + low else "",if MarketOpen then color.GREEN else color.BLUE);

AddVerticalLine(MarketOpen,if MarketOpen then “High:” + high +" Low:" + low else "",if MarketOpen then color.GREEN else color.BLUE);

Try changing these:

Ruby:
def NineThirty = SecondsFromTime(930) == 0;
def TwelveOclock = SecondsFromTime(1200) == 0;

Thanks. That didn't work. The bar above which shows the high and lows seem to correctly show for every bar. I tried changing to 930.05, 931 and 930.59 and all return different results but dont match what the actual candle high and lows are.
The code change to your code works for me. Are you wanting something different than just a vertical line at the first bar with the high/low of that bar?

Ruby:
input rangeHighPrice = high;
input rangeLowPrice = low;


def rg = AbsValue(rangeHighPrice - rangeLowPrice);

plot range = rg;
range.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HISTOGRAM);

range.SetDefaultColor(Color.DARK_GREEN);

def NineThirty = SecondsFromTime(930) == 0;
def TwelveOclock = SecondsFromTime(1200) == 0;
def MarketOpen = NineThirty > 0 && NineThirty [1] <= 0;
def LunchTime = TwelveOclock > 0 && TwelveOclock[1] <= 0;


AddVerticalLine(MarketOpen,if MarketOpen then “High:” + high +" Low:" + low else "",if MarketOpen then color.GREEN else color.BLUE);
 
I am just trying to capture the high and low value of the first market candle bar. May I ask what change in the code that worked? Thanks a lot.
It was just changing the 2 lines in your code with what I posted. Here is the code with those revisions, plus a chart bubble that displays the same information that is in the vertical line

AddVerticalLine(MarketOpen, if MarketOpen then “High:” + high + " Low:" + low else "", if MarketOpen then Color.GREEN else Color.BLUE);

addchartBubble(marketopen, high, “High:” + high + " \nLow:" + low,if MarketOpen then color.GREEN else color.BLUE);
