Code Snippet : Time Left Info Near to the Candle/Bars

1 min read

Here is a small code snippet that displays the seconds left for the bar to close near to the current running candle. If you are more focused on trading at a lower timeframe then this feature makes more sense as a lower timeframe trader. And the code is compatible with Amibroker 5.71 and onwards. It may not work with lower Amibroker versions.

Time Left

 
Time left AFL code near to Current Running Candle


_SECTION_BEGIN("Time Left");

sound = ParamList("Sound Alert", "ON|OFF",0);

function GetSecondNum()

{

Time = Now( 4 );

Seconds = int( Time % 100 );

Minutes = int( Time / 100 % 100 );

Hours = int( Time / 10000 % 100 );

SecondNum = int( Hours * 60 * 60 + Minutes * 60 + Seconds );

return SecondNum;

}

RequestTimedRefresh( 1 );

TimeFrame = Interval();

SecNumber = GetSecondNum();

Newperiod = SecNumber % TimeFrame == 0;

SecsLeft = SecNumber - int( SecNumber / TimeFrame ) * TimeFrame;

SecsToGo = TimeFrame - SecsLeft;


if ( NewPeriod )

{

GfxSelectSolidBrush( colorYellow );

GfxSelectPen( colorYellow, 2 );

if(sound=="ON")
{
_TRACE("New Period Alert");
Say( "New period" );
}
}


PlotTextSetFont(NumToStr(SecsToGo,1,False)+ " Sec Left", "Arial", 10, BarCount-1, Close[BarCount-1], colorred, colorDefault, -30 ); 


_SECTION_END();
