KPL Swing Indicator for Metastock

no:=Input("Swing/ Bars",1, 20, 2);

The above is the Swing indicator which is plotted directly on Metastock chart

Originally the indicator is plotted in one color.

I want a code to change the indicator color to Red when the Close is below the indicator and again the color should change to Blue when stock trades above the Close.

Please can any help me with the required code which changes color as per the requirement.

Hi Kshetij

Can you repost the code using the appropriate tags to prevent the code from being corrupted? Any recent post by Wabbit includes information on how to do that.

Is the indicator to be plotted as a histogram or a line? Histograms are easy to colour, but lines range from difficult to impossible depending on the style.
