The study allows for the input in minutes. Therefore, I am assuming that if I set it at '1440' minutes; Calculation method set at 'retracement'; New period at day session start set to 'no'; Calculation reference value set to 'automatic'; Chart Settings...Advanced Settings to include 'columns with no data', Chart Settings Start Time:18:00 EST, End Time:17:59:59, the result should ,in theory, provide me with a calculation that references the high and low for an ongoing 24 hour period. Or, alternatively, if I set it to '3600' minutes,it should automatically reference the high and low of the last 2.5 days. Am I mistaken in my assumption, because it does not appear to function accordingly ?

This will not be the case. The chart will be divided up into 24 hour or 3600 minute segments which are going to be aligned to the Session Times and a common point of reference. We will make sure the documentation explains this clearly.



If you still need more help, then refer to the documentation for this study here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/StudiesReference.php&ID=169&Name=Auto_Retracement_Projection

Tell us in detail the specific calculation that you are looking for. And provide us an image of a chart showing the 24-hour data for a particular day and the particular result you are looking for from that.

We will then need to get your chart by following these instructions here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/PostingInformation.php#ProvidingChartbookSingleChart

We can then look this over. Otherwise, it is not possible for us to answer the question.
