Take a look at the information for how to write Alerts at the following link: Study/Chart Alerts And Scanning To give you an example, if you wanted to color the bar when the bar total height (High - Low) is more than twice the size of the Open to Close, then you would write the Alert Formula like the following: =(H - L) > ABS(2 * (O - C)) Refer to the information for the Color Bar Based on Alert Condition here: Color Bar Based on Alert Condition For the most reliable, advanced, and zero cost futures order routing, use the Teton service: Sierra Chart Teton Futures Order Routing
 [2022-09-27 16:48:11] #3 User282978 - Posts: 11 Thanks, I need to create C>=L+(H-L)/2 for green bar, I think this will give me if the bar has closed equal or more than 50% of it's size. I think i need multiple conditions. Date Time Of Last Edit: 2022-09-27 17:05:00

 [2022-09-27 17:32:56] #5 bradh - Posts: 901 Thanks, I need to create C>=L+(H-L)/2 for green bar Think of Alert formulas like Excel formulas that can begin with "=". So your Alert formula would be: =C>=L+(H-L)/2 or more simply: =C>=(L+H)/2 Date Time Of Last Edit: 2022-09-27 17:40:15
 [2022-09-27 17:33:04] #6 John - SC Support - Posts: 33075 You need to use the AND() function. So it would look like the following: AND(C > O, C > (L+H)/2) For the most reliable, advanced, and zero cost futures order routing, use the Teton service: Sierra Chart Teton Futures Order Routing
