Hi,

The Expert Advisor's "Highlights" tab is how you can formulaically color price bars. Expert Advisors can be attached to charts, but you can only have one Expert attached at a time.

As for the formula logic itself, it largely depends on the type of conditions you are looking for. "Ref" is the function that allows you to change the price bar you are looking for the condition on, so you can build out some simple logic like:

Ref("Condition1",-1) AND "Condition2"

Ref shifts the reference point back 1 bar to look for Condition1, and Condition2 looks for the condition to be happening on the current bar. If you want the prior bar condition to specifically be -not- true on the current bar you can also look for Condition1 to be 0 on the current bar, in addition to Condition2 being true:

Ref("Condition1",-1) AND "Condition1"=0 AND "Condition2"

How can i try this using Barssince code??

Hi again,

Formula function outputs can be compared to a numerical value to make them into a conditional statement, such as:

Code:
BarsSince( MACD() > 0) < 2 AND BarsSince( MACD() < 0) < 1
