If your referring to Intra-Day candles...this is slightly more difficult because if your highlighting one day then it would be easy to assign two different colors....but if your highlighting all 5 days with different colors...then creating a rule like that would require 10 different colors...and looking at 10 different colors in my opinion would be difficult to easily memorize when looking at charts.
The purpose of this code...is two things:
#1 to be able to highlight a daily bar a specific color to visually see if there is a historical trend for that day...again using Hollow Candlesticks lets you know if it is up or down.
#2 to be able to get a quick snapshot of Intra-Day bars by day of the week.
The code accomplishes both of those purposes. Your more than welcome to modify the code any way you like. If you have a specific question about how to code it to accomplish specific criteria...feel free to leave another comment and I will show you how.
