Is there a way to draw a verticle line on a plot? Something like

Draw Verticle Line at 20 days


Draw Verticle Line at userVariable days

Not really. However, if you use the offset or "days ago" function, the period of time since that date is colored differently on the SF chart, effectively giving you a vertical line at the color boundary.

Yes, you are right, I can use OFFSET or DAYS AGO and it will display a banded color. However, that doesn't work when there is a variable time frame.

For example, if I create a filter looking for a MACD crossover and would like a date line drawn whereever that crossover occurs. I can't use the generic OFFSET because it isn't something applied to the entire script. And I can't set it to a variable and then use it with DAYS AGO becasue the DAYS AGO function doesn't accept a variable as a parameter.

It would be great if SF would add a VERTICLE LINE capability, and also the ability to use variables for parameter input.

POP... Okay now we can add notes and screw with everyone else's opinion on a stock.... Lol.. And you draw the line we want to draw and even put a label on it...

What's the odds of giving us the ability to draw our own vertical line based on a trigger event or alert.. meaning using the count functionality on a display beneath the chart and being able to draw the vertical line on the price plot....

notes via logic..such as:
Set{addnote, condition1, color "green", note "buy"}
Set{addnote, condition2, color "red", note "sell"}

I'd also like to have the ability to shade an area between two horizonta/vertical lines...
To the effect of:
Set{shadehorizontal, (upperlimit,lower limit,color)}
Set{shadevertical, (upper limit,lower limit, color)}
