We have added basic support for controlling the plot-type (line, bar, etc) for your custom StockFetcher variables. Right now the number of chart types is limited; however, keep your eyes open for additional options with the HTML5 charts.

Usage:

PlotType{user-variable,[plottype]}

Valid Plot Types:

- line: basic line (default)
- zerobar: Histogram centered at zero
- dot: A small circle for the value

Examples:

Fetcher[
set{uband, Upper Bollinger Band(20)}
set{lband, Lower Bollinger Band(20)}
close is above 10
and draw uband on plot price
and draw lband on plot price
PlotType{uband,dot}
PlotType{lband,dot}
]



Fetcher[
set{myvar,CCI(10)}
close is above 10
draw myvar
PlotType{myvar,zerobar}
]

Thanks for this addition - one request:

Can you add to this the ability to have the histogram (or dot) change color based on the value? This is already implemented in the volume histogram, with bar color associated with positive or negative gain on price.

It would be nice to have the histogram go from blue to red if the value crossed below zero, for example.

Kevin

P.S. Does this change only work on custom variables? I tried this on the RSI(2) as a test and it did not change it to a different format.

Any update on this request? Again - almost three months go by and no response.

We do not have any updates at this time concerning the "color change" option that you mention in your original message.

Concerning the "P.S." to your message, yes, as indicated in the announcment, this feature only applies to user-defined variables.
