45 sec read

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