In 1093, there are two new background coloring options in the Numbers Bars study: Dominant Side and Dominant Side Auction. These are similar to same named text coloring options, but affect the background color instead of the text color. The bid & ask are divided and the result compared with the compare thresholds to set the colors based on the percentage of each (i.e. bid=200 ask=400 -> b/a=50% on bid side and a/b=200% on ask side). Using the thresholds, one of the colors is selected.

Note, we will updating the documentation for these new options.

So to do what you describe, you would set the background type to Background on Dominant Side, set the Background Coloring to Dominant Side, and compare thresholds to 1000,1000,1000 (10X would be 1000%). For colors, you would then set both 0-25 colors to chart background color and the 26-50 color to whatever highlight you want to use.

Note, the above can be done with the pre-1093 study using the Text Coloring method instead.
