## Reversal bar up/down bar indicator?

 [2019-04-10 18:13:03] #1 User873570 - Posts: 27 Hi, I am looking for something similar in function to the very top-left indicator in this picture: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_dXsrF48G300/SYUaYgA3DQI/AAAAAAAAAFE/5s8SGSBxspI/s1600/1-31-2009+Rev+Chart+Lesson.png What is does is simply alternate between two colors to tell you at a glance whether a given reversal bar is an up bar or a down bar. Sometimes this is obvious from the bars themselves, but oftentimes it is not, hence an indicator like this would be helpful. Does anything exist in Sierra to help provide a similar visual function? If not, an imperfect but easy workaround might involve using the Numbers Bars Calculated Values. The logic might be something like "If the bar type is reversal bar, then print color 1 for up bars, color 2 for down bars." Thanks for your consideration.
