This indicator shows how to avoid repainting when using the security() function to retrieve information from higher timeframes.
What do we mean by repainting?
Repainting is used to describe three different things, in what we’ve seen in TV members comments on indicators:
1. An indicator showing results that change during the realtime bar, whether the script is...
Even when your code does not use security() calls, repainting dynamics still come into play in the realtime bar. Script coders and users must understand them and, if they choose to avoid repainting, need to know how to do so. This script demonstrates three methods to avoid repainting when NOT using the security() function.
Note that repainting dynamics when not...
The indicator is for experimental purpose only, it must not be used as a decisional tool but only as a visual one (like Zig-Zag, Fractal etc). The information this indicator display is uncertain and subject to drastic changes over time. If you have further question feel free to pm me.
Most of the filters you will find are causal, this...
In fact, there are so many causes of the repainting problem in Pine scripts, especially in using different candlestick types and multiple time resolutions in the scripts. This study is to show how the repaint is happening and possible way to avoid repainting issues in the Pine scripts.
Use 1M normal candlestick in TV chart
Use 5M HA...
Pine's implementation of the security() function behaves differently in realtime vs. historical bars. Specifically, for historical bars, calling security() for a time frame (TF) larger/slower than the current chart's TF will return information about the last completed bar of the higher TF. However, for realtime bars (i.e. if you allow the chart to...
