The experience shows that every financial instrument has its own personality. With this in mind, the script can be useful to study intraday charts with the purpose of discovering recurring behaviours of specific instruments over a certain time range and under specific circumstances (normal days, earnings days, days with catalysts, etc.) This can help the trader to deeply understand the instrument personality, and therefore also to decide whether to enter or exit the market if its behaviour meets or not his expectations.
Please note that this script only works on minute/hourly charts.
Cleaned the code.
1) Shortened the short title, which now is "Time Ranges".
2) Removed the seconds time frame limitation.
3) Cleaned, simplified and improved the overall appearance of the code.
Added 17 additional time ranges, bringing the total to 30.
This new version includes the option to choose whether to project the colors ahead of time, allowing you to see them even before the price reaches the specified time.
In order to achieve this purpose, I had to modify the input mode for the time ranges.
In true TradingView spirit, the author of this script has published it open-source, so traders can understand and verify it. Cheers to the author! You may use it for free, but reuse of this code in a publication is governed by House Rules. You can favorite it to use it on a chart.
