Help with Hourly ATR Cloud Indicator


New member
Sup yall, I want to create an indicator that plots a cloud and above the ATR. w/ a 5 point cloud.

For example, 200 hourly ATR

Every hour whatever the 200 period ATR (On Hourly or maybe we can do it for whatever timeframe? but i'm mainly focused on hourly) so at 12:00 the 200 hourly ATR for /ES is 16.25 points. Hourly open is 4220. I want to create an indicator that plots a cloud at 4236.25 to 4241.25 as a RED Cloud and 4204.250-4199.25 GREEN cloud.

And have it do this every hour at the opening print for each hour. So 0900CST, 10am CST, 11am CST ect.

Also I want this to plot for the full hour. So 1 plot/level for 0900-10am and 1400-1500 ect. So whatever the Plot is at 11am CST it plots all the way until 11:59am CST. Ect.

I would prefer if the ATR value is editable and dynamic, but if the ATR period has to be hardcoded in the code w/o a input variable thats ok.

Basically my own version of the HPMR and Volatility box ect. I figured out the hourly ATR period for the Chart Viper HPMR's and wanna make my own indicator so I can use it and possibly even stream it w/o streaming someone elses indicator.

But im total newb to making TOS indicators.

Does anyone have an idea how to code this?
@QuantumSense like this?


input Points = 5;
input agg = AggregationPeriod.HOUR;
input ATR_length = 200;
input averageType = AverageType.WILDERS;

def agg_value = open(period = agg);
def ATR = MovingAverage(averageType, TrueRange(high(period = agg), close(period = agg), low(period = agg)), ATR_length);

plot UpperBottomLine = agg_value + ATR;
plot UpperTopLine = UpperBottomLine + Points;
plot LowerTopLine = agg_value - ATR;
plot LowerBottomLine = LowerTopLine - Points;

AddCloud(UpperTopLine, UpperBottomLine, Color.RED);
AddCloud(LowerTopLine, LowerBottomLine, Color.GREEN);
