AlanBars by dblue
dblue's AlanBars.dat template highlights Bars 1, 8, and 11. There are two other features the user can "turn on" by ticking the check boxes on the appropriate lines:
(1) a feature that colors bars that are making
higher highs (or lower lows), which is useful for Alan's 1-2-3-4 HH or LL setup.
(2) a bar counting feature on the DYO that can be turned on to number all the bars (starting from 8:20am ET), useful when needing to identifying other bars, or for finding missing bars.
The main templates page has various alternative bar counting and time ribbon templates.
