# Opening Range Indicator for ThinkorSwim with Fibonacci Levels

Here is another version of the Opening Range Breakout indicator I mentioned in this post.

Automatic Opening Range and Fibonacci Levels This Thinkscript is designed to plot the OR high, low, 50% fib retrace, and fib extensions for the current day. This will only work correctly on time-based charts, where the OR time frame is divisible by the bar period e.g. 30 minute OR, 10 min bars. An extra fib extension may be used if desired...

### thinkScript Code

Rich (BB code):
``````#

Thank you for sharing your trading tips and script, they are all informative. I just want to ask you a newbie question regarding the above Fib script, can you add a cloud for the green line and red line similar to the opening range breakout indicator, do you have a code that I can paste?

Last edited:
@NathanJames Hey, glad you're liking the contents on here. If you want the cloud, you can use the previous version. Just enable it via the indicator's settings page.

Oops, I just re-read the comment lol. I'll look into it and see if I can send you the code.

Code:
``addCloud(ORL, ORH, color.gray, color.gray);``

Place it on the bottom of your script.

Ben, thanks for the quick response, the code worked

Hi @BenTen , what is that MacDGrip you are using at the bottom of the screen?, can you please share or explain how you use that indicator? Thanks again for all your help.

Hey everyone. This should work on any time frame below 30 min. , it for sure works on the 5 min. I have used it and the levels are the same. Interesting thing is the mid fib line will pretty closely match the Magic 1.272 Fib study. If interested in that level pick one or the other , no need for both.

@ganq I believe this is what you're looking for. Be sure to adjust the MACD length to the default settings if that's what you prefer.

@horserider I believe it's similar to Fib 1.272 because the ORB indicator uses 1.382 as one of the extensions.

Nope. It is the mid fib line. The 1.382 lines are above and below he opening range lines.

@ganq Better to just use ToS MACD Histogram and switch dark green to dark red and dark red to dark green.

@horserider Why?, have you noticed TOS MACD to perform better than this one?

hello i like this ORB indicator but a need more extra line to it, it has the ext 1 and ext 2, but i need the ext 3 ext 4 ext 5( extended Fibonacci line 2.00, 2.618 & 4.236. thank you so much here the code

@tradetollive See if this works. Change Fib Ext 2 to yes.

hi thank you for the script in my thinkorswim it only shows the fib. lines only for 1 day is it possible to show these line in past five days

@alphabeta Under the indicator's settings page, you should see an option called "Show Today Only". Select No.

ok thank you so much actually i recently started to use thinkorswim so i am not familiar thank you once again!!

@BenTen anyway to make this work on mobile? this plus the macd seem like a great combo.

also curious if you have any thoughts on how this would apply to a scanner.. something along the lines of if a stock with X factors (volume, price, etc) bounces off the support, set an alert in the scanner.

@jimothy I don't think this will work on the mobile app.

@horserider HI, I would like to try your doji indicator setup. Can you please share chart or study with me?

Thanks,
Ojas

i currently am using a script that will find the low and high of a certain time period and output a price level (thickest Green & red dotted lines) along with fib levels above and below (thinner dotted lines). My issue is that the Line is drawn as time progresses rather than drawing the line all the way across the chart on the x (time) axis. i have searched everywhere for the function that controls the length of the line but i cannot find a solution anywhere. any help is appreciated.
