Initial Balance Indicator for ThinkorSwim

Hi guys,

I found an Initial Balance indicator that plots the high and low of the initial balance for those who are interested. I'm wondering if someone can help add extensions to the initial Balance?

I'm looking for 50% and 100% extensions on each side of the Initial Balance. Currently, I'm stuck doing it manually, and it's really annoying.


Code:
input opentime = 0930;
input ORend = 1030;
input opacity = 1;
def na = Double.NaN;
#
# Check if the opening range time is now
#
def ORActive = if GetLastDay() == GetDay() and SecondsFromTime(opentime) >= 0 and SecondsFromTime(ORend) <
0 then 1 else 0;
#
# Track the OR high and low
#
def ORHigh = if ORActive then high else na;
def ORLow = if ORActive then low else na;
#
# Plot the OR high and low
#
plot ORAH = if GetLastDay() != GetDay() or !ORActive then na else HighestAll(ORHigh);
plot ORAL = if GetLastDay() != GetDay() or !ORActive then na else LowestAll(ORLow);
plot ORH = if GetLastDay() != GetDay() or SecondsFromTime(ORend) < 0 then na else HighestAll(ORHigh);
plot ORL = if GetLastDay() != GetDay() or SecondsFromTime(ORend) < 0 then na else LowestAll(ORLow);

Here you go! Green is 50% extension and Red is 100% extension of IB.

Below is an opening range script I'm using but having difficulty modifying it to do the following once the market time of 9:45 is active:
  • Show the start of the transparent cloud from 9:30 ~ 9:45 but not follow the market time beyond 9:45.
  • Show the start of the 0%, 50%, and 100% opening range horizontal lines from 9:30 and follow market time until market close
Code:
def na=double.nan;

input CloudOn  = yes;

# Define time that OR begins (in hhmm format,
# 0930 is the default):
input ORBegin = 0930;

# Define time that OR is finished (in hhmm format,
# 10:00 is the default):
input OREnd = 0945;

# Show Today only? (Default Yes)
input ShowTodayOnly={"No", default "Yes"};
def s=ShowTodayOnly;

# Create logic for OR definition:
Def ORActive = if secondstilltime(OREnd)>0 AND secondsfromtime(ORBegin)>=0 then 1 else 0;

# Create logic to paint only current day post-open:
def today=if s==0 OR getday()==getlastday() AND secondsfromtime(ORBegin)>=0 then 1 else 0;

# Track OR High:
Rec ORHigh = if ORHigh[1]==0 or ORActive[1]==0 AND ORActive==1 then high else if ORActive AND high>ORHigh[1] then high else ORHigh[1];

# Track OR Low:
Rec ORLow = if ORLow[1]==0 or ORActive[1]==0 AND ORActive==1 then low else if ORActive AND low<ORLow[1] then low else ORLow[1];

# Define all the plots:
Plot ORH=if ORActive OR today<1 then na else ORHigh;
Plot ORL=if ORActive OR today<1 then na else ORLow;

# Formatting:
ORH.setdefaultcolor(color.green);
ORH.setStyle(curve.Short_DASH);
ORH.setlineweight(1);
ORL.setdefaultcolor(color.red);
ORL.setStyle(curve.Short_DASH);

addCloud(if CloudOn == yes
         then orl
         else double.nan
       , ORH,createColor(41,98,255), createColor(41,98,255));

This uses an offset, [-(orend-orbegin)] to show the cloud during the opening range between orbegin and orend. A mid (50%) line was also added.

@SleepyZ thank you so much for modifying this. Is there a way to make this work for futures? I mainly trade /ES and when I load your modified code, the indicator does not appear. However it does appear when I disable extended hours.

Sorry, just saw this question.

The above seems to work on /ES with or without extended hours enabled

Here are 2 charts without extended hours in the upper chart and with extended hours in the lower chart, both for /ES 1m charts

 
I have a quick ask, is there a chance to make this available in the 5 minute timeframe, it seems to work only on 1 minute
 
Some additional help, i modified this to draw two boxes, one from 9:30am to 10:30am from high to low and the other one on the same time from opening to closing price, and the lines to show the high, low, opening and closing of the 9:30 to 10:30 range, can someone help? im getting some weird results:

I think this will fix that situation by adding a divisor to the offset of getaggregationperiod()/60000. See the code below.

Seems i wrote my reply on another thread, sorry

Thanks SleepyZ, this is great! really appreciate it, if i may ask for a couple of things, i put the script to work today at open and when 9:30 hit the boxes did not plot, i don't know if they'll plot at the end of the day but if there is a way to make them appear when the clock hits the 9:30 it would be great, the other thing is if the lines could plot all the way to the end of the day, right now they plot little by little, as soon as every candle closes, a bit of line appears, ideally when 9:30 hits the lines would plot all the way to the end of the session, Thank you!

Quick edit - Seems the boxes start drawing later, i checked my chart and the box started drawing after 9:30, seems like it will finish drawing at the end of the 12:10 candle if that makes sense

See if this helps. I started to reply where you originally postes, so this looks similar to the code there.

Screenshot-2022-11-28-100120.png
Ruby:
input start = 0930;
input end   = 1600;
def   na    =  Double.NaN;
plot hitoday = if SecondsFromTime(start) >= 0 and SecondsFromTime(end) <= 0 then high(period = AggregationPeriod.DAY) else na;
plot lotoday = if SecondsFromTime(start) >= 0 and SecondsFromTime(end) <= 0 then low(period = AggregationPeriod.DAY) else na;
AddCloud(hitoday, lotoday, Color.DARK_GREEN, Color.DARK_GREEN );
AddVerticalLine(SecondsFromTime(start) == 0, "Start 0930", Color.CYAN);
AddVerticalLine(SecondsFromTime(end) == 0, "End 1600", Color.CYAN);

@SleepyZ You actually revised another high low for me today but I really like the way this one is setup. I even added the 50 line divider plot from the code up above to really see the picture, for some strange reason it doesn't plot during market hours not sure what would be the reasoning.
