TOS MONKEY BARS SET UP AND STUDIES

This post has been created to help traders set up Think or Swim Monkey Bars to be similar to Jim Dalton's Market Profiles. A JD member furnished these instructions for fellow members at J Dalton Trading.

Studies you can add:

#Calculates half back in multiple available aggregation periods.

input aggregationPeriod = AggregationPeriod.DAY;

plot HB = hl2(period=aggregationPeriod);

HB.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(0));

HB.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);

Adds the moving price line to TOS charts: 
#This will only plot during regular trading hours unless you have the charts set to extended hours.
 
plot priceLine = highestAll(if isNan(close[-1]) and !isNAN(close) then close else double.nan);

Instructions to set up TOS Monkey Bars:

There is a Chart Style called "Monkey Bars" that shows the market profile. Only real difference is that it uses numbers for the periods instead of letters. Its not even close to WindoTrader Blue, but is free..

The workspace replaces all your existing settings with those. This could be an undesired effect.
