Opening Range Indicator with Measured Moves and VWAP For ThinkOrSwim

Hello again,

I'm back with a bit of a different take on the Opening Range. This is a relatively simple indicator that analyzes movement during a specified time period and plots various lines based on that information. I am anchoring a VWAP (with standard deviations) to this start time as well to better judge the prevailing trend. The opening range is usually a daytrading tool and as such this will not display on daily or higher timeframes. There is another similar concept based on the weekly open range but that is a topic for another time.

In the image above, I have added the study twice. Once, from the European session open and once from the US Open. You will see the blue-ish lines representing the opening range for each of those periods with a mid-line and some extended targets based on the range. This study is intended to provide context to your trading system but is not a strategy in and of itself. If you are interested in learning more about why Opening Ranges are important and some different strategies to trade them, there is a more complex study with background information here: Opening Range Breakout.

There are options in this study to show the range as a label in the top left, to show/hide the extended targets and also to add additional 1/4 and 3/4 lines inside of the range. You can also enable bubbles to show that display the OR highs and lows but need to have an expansion area of 5 bars or so to display properly. And finally, there is an option to color your candles if they fall outside of the OR.

The options have two associated timeframes. One for the opening range you want to analyze (eg. 9:30 to 9:45) and another for the period for the lines to draw (eg. 9:30 to 16:00). In the image above, the first version has 2:30 to 3:30 as the European open range and 2:30 to 9:00 as the time to draw the lines. The second version (in the same chart) is 9:30 to 9:45 and then 9:30 to 16:00 for the line display. Hopefully this makes sense.

This study will work best on timeframes less than 1 hour and will perform will on tick charts. Range charts and renko charts will have some difficulties with the study and the VWAP will not work on those at all. This one was pretty fun to build. Please let me know if you have ideas for improvement.

Nice work Tony. I wonder if you have tried to develop a similar approach but using 1D candles for swing trading with some multiday method?

I have heard that some people watch the Globex open on Sunday through to the close of day Monday as the weekly opening range. I am going to play around with that in the future to see if there are interesting patterns that develop. If so, I will share that here.

I'm looking for something similar to: https://usethinkscript.com/threads/...kout-indicator-for-thinkorswim.154/#post-1291
This one I like on TradingView but I'm looking to make it work on TOS. Any suggestions?
https://www.tradingview.com/script/vjkErFo8-Michigandolf-s-30min-Opening-Range/
This script plots the 30min Opening Range as well as the previous day's high & low.

Description:
Blue Line = Top of the 30min Opening Range for the session
Pink Line = Bottom of the 30min Opening Range for the session
White Line = Mid-Point of the 30min Opening Range for the session
White Transparent Area = The full range of the 30min Opening Range

Green Line = Yesterday's High for the session
Red Line = Yesterday's Low for the session

Use:
The Opening Range will continue to expand until the first 30minutes of trading has passed, at which point the range will lock in place for the remainder of the trading session. Many traders use these important levels to gauge trade entries and exits (e.g. Mark Fisher's ACD strategy).

This script does not work currently work for futures (e.g. ES, NQ, RTY) due to the session start time.

Have you looked at this one: https://usethinkscript.com/threads/opening-range-indicator-with-measured-moves-and-vwap.8256/

I wrote it based on his tweets.
 
hey everyone so i am using the opening range breakout script from @FutureTony and have ran into a problem that ive seen with several other ORB scripts. the "box" or the levels for ORH ORM and ORL plot as time goes on. i have found it to be more beneficial to have the levels plot all at once from the end of the opening range. im sure its just a simple line of code i need to accomplish this but im stumped.

Code:

hey everyone so i am using the opening range breakout script from @FutureTony and have ran into a problem that ive seen with several other ORB scripts. the "box" or the levels for ORH ORM and ORL plot as time goes on. i have found it to be more beneficial to have the levels plot all at once from the end of the opening range. im sure its just a simple line of code i need to accomplish this but im stumped.

I'm not 100% sure I understand the request. Do you mean you want them to plot ONLY for a couple of bars after the opening range OR something else.

I essentially just want the opening range high/low/mid lines to spread across the whole chart instead of plotting the zone as time goes on throughout the day. I want to be able to see the whole zone right after the start/end time is met
 
Ruby:
def initLow = CompoundValue (1, low, low);
def bn = barNumber();
def iterLowestPrice_GlobeX = if ORActive and !ORActive[1] or bn == 1

            then initLow

            else if ORActive and initLow < iterLowestPrice_GlobeX[1]

                then initLow

I believe you are asking to show the line across the entire chart. You need to jump through some hoops to make that happen. I borrowed some code from the Mobius Globex/RTH indicator and came up with this code above. I believe it should get you going to achieve the lines across the chart.
 
I enable the "Show bubble" for the Midpoint but it does not display. Is there a missing code that I can add to show the bubbles.

Great job throwing the script together - looks promising. Thanks for putting it together. Would it be too much to ask for an Anchored VWAP with the deviations that doesn't include the ORB? Or a switch to turn the orb off and allow the VWAP to remain on screen? I like to keep a clean chart and being able to mark the ORB lines when necessary would be convenient 🤟

When I originally wrote this, I was attempting to keep the clutter down so was trying to show the least amount of things as possible. If you would like to add the midpoint bubble, add this line to the bottom of the study:
AddChartBubble(showBubbles and showBubbleNow[1] and showMidPoint, midPoint[1], "Mid", Color.GRAY, no);

Thanks! You should be able to toggle the ORB lines on/off by simply checking the 'show plot' button for ORL and ORH in the plot options for the study. If you have all of the options except the VWAP ones set to no, it should only show the VWAP and deviations.
 
Hello again,

I'm back with a bit of a different take on the Opening Range. This is a relatively simple indicator that analyzes movement during a specified time period and plots various lines based on that information. I am anchoring a VWAP (with standard deviations) to this start time as well to better judge the prevailing trend. The opening range is usually a daytrading tool and as such this will not display on daily or higher timeframes. There is another similar concept based on the weekly open range but that is a topic for another time.

In the image above, I have added the study twice. Once, from the European session open and once from the US Open. You will see the blue-ish lines representing the opening range for each of those periods with a mid-line and some extended targets based on the range. This study is intended to provide context to your trading system but is not a strategy in and of itself. If you are interested in learning more about why Opening Ranges are important and some different strategies to trade them, there is a more complex study with background information here: Opening Range Breakout.

There are options in this study to show the range as a label in the top left, to show/hide the extended targets and also to add additional 1/4 and 3/4 lines inside of the range. You can also enable bubbles to show that display the OR highs and lows but need to have an expansion area of 5 bars or so to display properly. And finally, there is an option to color your candles if they fall outside of the OR.

The options have two associated timeframes. One for the opening range you want to analyze (eg. 9:30 to 9:45) and another for the period for the lines to draw (eg. 9:30 to 16:00). In the image above, the first version has 2:30 to 3:30 as the European open range and 2:30 to 9:00 as the time to draw the lines. The second version (in the same chart) is 9:30 to 9:45 and then 9:30 to 16:00 for the line display. Hopefully this makes sense.

This study will work best on timeframes less than 1 hour and will perform will on tick charts. Range charts and renko charts will have some difficulties with the study and the VWAP will not work on those at all. This one was pretty fun to build. Please let me know if you have ideas for improvement.

@FutureTony Thank for sharing your work, I've been watching the daily ranges and I love it. You mentioned weekly open range and was hoping if you don't mind sharing. Thank you in advance
 
Weekly levels are better done manually IMO as you need too much data to grab them on a chart. Try this exercise: Weekly Levels
@FutureTony Why's this indicator so spot on, what calculation did you come up with...Looking at /ES today was like WOW...If I were to develop anything like this for weekly, what are some parameters do I need to considers. Any help will be greatly appreciated

I will start by saying, nothing works all the time. The calculations here are simple - 50% of the opening move range added above and below the range. By default, it uses the opening 15m but I know some use the opening 5m or the opening 1m.
If you were to look into using a weekly range, you could try time-based OR you could check out this study with a different approach - Weekly Opening Range Breakout. Let us know if you find anything interesting!
