# Previous hour, hours high low close

Thanks to all of you very much for the great studies and education. I am looking for the previous hour, hours, high, low, close. I have searched and haven’t had any luck. Could someone point me in the right direction? Or, perhaps create a script that would plot previous hour, or 2 hour, or 4 hour, high, low, close? That would stay printed on the chart. Thank you in advance for the help.

Just like the study below but hourly instead of daily

not sure what all your code does,
here is a basic version

Code:
``````def na = Double.NaN;

input Show_High = yes;
input Show_Low = yes;
input Show_Open = yes;
input Show_Close = yes;

input agg_period = AggregationPeriod.HOUR;
input offset = 1;
plot zo = if Show_Open then open(period = agg_period)[offset] else na;
plot zh = if Show_High then high(period = agg_period)[offset] else na;
plot zl = if Show_Low then low(period = agg_period)[offset] else na;
plot zc = if Show_Close then close(period = agg_period)[offset] else na;

zo.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
zh.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
zl.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
zc.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);

zo.SetDefaultColor(Color.cyan);
zh.SetDefaultColor(Color.gray);
zl.SetDefaultColor(Color.gray);
zc.SetDefaultColor(Color.yellow);
