# the high and low range of a Asian, European markets for ThinkOrSwim

##### New member
How to draw a square in the high and low range of a market.
Example the high and low of the Asian market and the high and low of the European market with different colors
and that they stay painted all the time.
thank you

Here is a modification of a recent study I did on here that plots both the sessions you requested. I do not trade these so you may need to adjust the timeframes and the minutes in the respective timeframes.

Ruby:
``````script times {
input coverHLOnly = yes;
input minutes     = 360;
input begin = 2100;
input end   = 0259;
def sec1    = SecondsFromTime(begin);
def sec2    = SecondsFromTime(end);
def isTime1 = (sec1 >= 0 and sec1[1] <= 0) or (sec1 < sec1[1] and sec1 >= 0);
def isTime2 = (sec2 > 0 and sec2[1] <= 0)...``````

Finally i got it!

I have a similar indicator I found but it only prints lines not a box for session high\low. I was wondering how I can get it to print for prior dates? I got the "input showOnlyLastPeriod = yes". What do I need next?

input sessionStartTime = 2000;
input sessionEndTime = 2230;
input showOnlyLastPeriod = yes;

def day = GetDay();
def lastDay = GetLastDay();
def isToday = day == lastDay;
def isTargetPeriod = SecondsTillTime(sessionStartTime) <= 0 and SecondsTillTime(sessionEndTime) > 0 and isToday;

def targetPeriodHigh = if isTargetPeriod and high > targetPeriodHigh[1] then high
else targetPeriodHigh[1];
def pmHigh = HighestAll(targetPeriodHigh);

plot pmHighPlot = if isTargetPeriod then pmHigh else Double.NaN;
pmHighPlot.SetDefaultColor(Color.YELLOW);

def targetPeriodLow = if !isTargetPeriod then Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY
else if isTargetPeriod and low < targetPeriodLow[1] then low
else targetPeriodLow[1];

def pmLow = LowestAll(targetPeriodLow);

plot pmLowPlot = if pmLow > 0 and isTargetPeriod then pmLow else Double.NaN;
pmLowPlot.SetDefaultColor(Color.YELLOW);

Dear sir, I hope this message finds all ya'll well.
I am writing to kindly request some clarification & help in correcting a script assigned to the Asia pacific High Low Range. I couldn't get it to plot only the current trading day and would greatly appreciate your guidance to ensure that I complete the task accurately and as per your expectations.
Your patience and understanding has made all the difference in my learning and trading journey to be consistent since I was 23. I'm 30 now and still growing and following all you're work. Thank you for teaching me the importance of perseverance and resilience. Sincerely, Isaac.

1. This uses counting to limit the plots/clouds for Tokyo as follows
2. The test bubbles are used to confirm how the count1/cond1 works
3. There are 9 Tokyo clouds per the count1. The highestall(count1) ==9 and from it is subtracted the count1 at each grouping . So the 9 count1 grouping = 9 - 9 + 1 = 1. The 8 count1 grouping = 9 - 8 + 1 = 2 ... etc, etc.
4. If you wanted to do this for Europe, then replace all count1 to count2; up1 to up2; and cond1 to cond2,

Code:
``````input begin1   = 1900;
input end1     = 0000;
input minutes1 = 360;
def up1    = times(minutes = minutes1, begin = begin1, end = end1);

def count1 = if !IsNaN(close) and !IsNaN(up1) != !IsNaN(up1[1]) then count1[1] + 1 else count1[1];
def cond1  = HighestAll(count1) - count1 + 1;
AddCloud(if cond1 == 1 then up1 else Double.NaN, down1, Color.YELLOW, Color.YELLOW);
input test = yes;
AddChartBubble(test, low, count1 + "\n" + cond1, Color.YELLOW, no);``````
