    Many thanks Kevin. Two really useful tools to use as a matter of routine, very valuable for reducing ‘operator error’. Greatly appreciated

  • Jesse says:

    Hey thanks for the article, but the download link for the indicator isn’t working

    • I just tested the download link and was able to download the ELD. What error are you getting if any?

  • Bruno says:


    First of all I want to thank you for sharing your knowledge.
    Can you tell me if in the data1 I have for example a future in 15 minutes, in the data2 should I also put in 15 minutes or daily?
    If data 1 is intraday, should I put data2 and data3 in daily to be able to use the paintbar indicator?

    A greeting.

    • Kevin Davey says:

      Thanks for question. You can use the same bar size for both. So, if data1 is @ESM18 5 min, then data2 would be @ES 5 minute.
