Plot 7 consecutive bars as histogram?


New member
Can you help me to add a line to code, that will signal 7 consecutive closes on one side of the histogram and mark this 7th bar on chart?

Thank you

declare lower;
Input price = close;
Input Fast = 1;
Input Slow = 5;
def FastSMA = Average(Price, Fast);
def SlowSMA = Average(price, Slow);
plot ZeroLine = 0;
plot Diff = FastSMA - SlowSMA;

Can you be more specific about your request? Seven red or green consecutive closes? What does it have to do with the moving average code you posted?

This code plots closes above or below 5 SMA, so I need somehow indicate 7 consecutive closes on both sides of moving average on histogram and also would be nice to indicate 7th candle itself on the chart
hey did u ever figure this out?
Also looking for this script!

this finds x bars in a row, on the same side of 0.
it colors the last bar in the series.
if the quantity is 7 and there are 8 bars in a row, the last 2 will be colored.

declare lower; 
Input price = close; 
Input Fast = 1; 
Input Slow = 5; 
input qty = 7;
def FastSMA = Average(Price, Fast);
def SlowSMA = Average(price, Slow); 
def Diff = FastSMA - SlowSMA; 

def ispos = diff > 0;
def isneg = diff < 0;
def pos_series = sum(ispos, qty) == qty;
def neg_series = sum(isneg, qty) == qty;

plot ZeroLine = 0; 
plot zDiff = diff;
zdiff.AssignValueColor(if pos_series then color.green else if neg_series then color.red else color.gray);
