Custom Time ranges



Description:
This script colours the background of any time range you specify, including weekend periods.

It can be useful for spotting patterns on Bitcoin (recurring times of buying or selling).

Checkboxes to switch on and off. Inputs to specify time and day of week.


Monday = 2
Tuesday = 3
Wednesday = 4
Thursday = 5
Friday = 6
Saturday = 7
Sunday = 1


Example 1:

1500-1800:2

This will colour the background between 3pm and 6pm on Mondays.


Example 2:


0000-0600:247

This will colour the background between midnight and 6am on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.


Any questions you may have, please leave in comments below and I'll respond when I have time.

Hi, can you add the color the only highlight the range's High and Low for the desired timeslot?

@dealerdon, That was my initial intention when I started this, unfortunately it is not possible due to Pinescript limitations. If you ever come across someone who has managed to plot highs and lows of a customised time series, please let me know.

Since It isn't possible to include price levels within the custom defined range, I added Daily price levels to this here:

Hi awesome script i have been looking for this from a long time, have you got time to wor on to plot the time range high and low

@edgeGT, Thanks.

I've actually had another crack at getting the highs/lows in the past week, I hit another dead end unfortunately.There must be a reason nobody else has managed it yet! I'll check out pinescript V4 and see if there is anything in there that might help.

Hi Duck! Maybe V2 it will be possible to apply the script to Daily charts and other timeframes? It would also be nice to be able to background specific recurrent events/periods in time! Thanks for your work!
