Hi/Lo for time period (or extended period) doesn't stair step Either in Main graph or any other chart region.
Its the default settings, so nothing was changed.

Also Daily OHLC study doesn't work when based on a moving average.

Refer to the documentation for High/Low For Time Period for an understanding of what it does:

It definitely does not do what you want and never has.

You cannot base Daily OHLC on a Moving Average. This does not make sense.

so I read the Hi/Lo documentation and see it will only mark the hi/lo for day. The confusing part is in its draw style, it says stairstep.

Within that description it lists that if I want a new Hi/low charted I should use the DAILY OHLC.

Why does the Daily OHLC on a Moving Ave not make sense??

if its charting whatever, say the price, then the moving average does indeed make a high for the time period (day in this case), so why wouldn't it be charted. More specifically it would be charting the "Averages" daily hi/low, which is what I assume you mean.

So what study would I use to track the Hi/lo in stair step fashion (Im actually using the moving average study with 1 as the length to get historic support/resistance line of Ask/Bid difference) based on another study??

Rethinking the Hi/Low study. it would not stairstep, but in real time it would actually provide me with the lastest Hi/Lo. I just couldn't use it to look at past days to sight the ongoing Hi's/Low's (stairstep).

You need to use the Daily OHLC study and set the appropriate input to graph the High/Low historically.

And do not base it on another study. It requires the underlying price data.
