Hi Chris! Please tell me whether your indicator to navigate within the day for thirty minute time frame in which direction will go a particular trend in the day? Thank you very much in advance! You are a genius of his craft!

Hello,

Please re ask your question...I don't understand what you mean by 30 minutes. The indicator is designed to plot in 1 hour segments that recur daily based on the times you choose. It's meant to make you aware of the opening o rend of a specific session. Has nothing to do with Trend.
