## Charting the difference between yesterdays close and the current price

### View Count: 1567

 [2017-09-01 12:22:04] #1 User771280 - Posts: 4 I'm plotting the difference between yesterdays close and the current price of the ES. I'm using: 1. One main 5 minute ES chart that is set to start: 15:30 stop 15:14:59 2. Added Study/Price Overlay for another daily ES chart that is set to start: 8:30 stop 15:14:59 3. Added study subgraph subtract/difference: Input study #1 = main5 minute ES chart using the Last option Input study #2 = main5 minute ES chart using the Last option Study 2 subgraph offset = 1 Draw zeros = yes Perform subtract with zero value = yes Problem: The study subgraph subtract/difference doesn't look at the current last daily bar (item #2) correctly throughout the trading session. Normal output currently: During the regular trading of 8:30 - 15:14:59 the plot has the correct value, looks at the last daily bar which is 1 day. During the after hours trading of 15:30 - 8:29:59 the plot has the incorrect value...it still uses 2 days prior instead of 1 day. I can change the "Study 2 subgraph offset = 1" to "Study 2 subgraph offset = 0" and I get the correct value.

 [2023-03-18 17:54:21] #6 User708541 - Posts: 61 Support, Two Things: Can you update this Study Collection so it is compatible with current version of SC? (Thank you) Also, I want to have a Study that plots a 'cumulative' line for the difference between yesterday's (or prior bar's) close with today's (or current bar's) Open - on a cumulative basis. I'm wondering if the Study above is similar enough to be easily modified for what I'm looking for. Thank you.
