This indicator identifies stocks with the narrowest high to low range for the past 7 days (NR7). Range contraction leads to range expansion.

Similar to the NR4 and Double Inside Day strategy, you can play the breakout when the stock move above the high of the narrow range day or short it when the stock breakdown from the low of the narrow range day.

#
# Define how you want the value plotted.

# Change plotter to whatever you want to customize it.
#
def plotter=high+range*0.3;
#
# Define an NR7–narrowest in the last 7 bars (including itself):
#
def isnr7 = (range <= range[1] and range <= range[2] and range <= range[3] and range <= range[4] and range <= range[5] and range <= range[6]);
#
# Define the plot:
# (Will paint if NR7, no paint if not)
#
plot nr7 = if isnr7 then plotter else na;
#
# Formatting:

nr7.SetDefaultColor(Color.yellow);
nr7.setstyle(curve.points);
nr7.setlineWeight(3);
