Plotting user-defined range high/low on chart

Support Request:

I want to be able to plot the high and low from a user-specified time period (such as the first 15 minutes or first 60 minutes of regular hours), and have those levels extend for a user-specified time period (such as until the end of the trading day).

Using this same study one could also plot the overnight high/low and have them extend until the end of the following trading day.

I found the study "High/Low for Time Period - Extend" which will give me the opening high/low for the time period I set, but I can't seem to get overnight high low to work with them. I put a start time of 15:15:00 and an end time of 8:29:00 but it seems to cut itself off at midnight. Is there a way to get the afterhours high/low range to carry over into the following day's chart with a user defined stop time?

For example, in central time the market closes at 3pm. If price makes an overnight low at 10pm on April 8th, 2013, I want to have that appear as a horizontal line that extends at that level until the end of the trading day on April 9th, 2013.

High/Low for Time Period-Extended does exactly what you want. You also need to set the Session Times in Chart Settings properly. Please refer to the documentation here:
