Here is the Tradingview Pinescript code for open range breakout. It a prototype code to build your own indicator/trading system on top of open range breakout levels. Traders can now build backtestable trading systems on top this pinescript code snippet.
Open Range Breakout is a simple strategy that monitors the first 5min / 15min / 15min / 30min / 60min range from the start of the market. From the opening high range and low range is calculated for the specified timeframe. Most of the Pinescript code found on the internet is either buggy or not suitable for building back-testable trading systems.
To solve this issue we are releasing a prototype for ORB – Open Range Breakout Levels.
By default, the code uses a 60min range breakout from the market open. However, Parameters can be changed from the Parameter window. Currently Open Range breakout options are available for various timeframes.
Note : If your charting timeframe is 5min then higher resolution can be accessed from the Resolution Input section. And Ensure while setting the Breakout Timings are set from the start of the exchange timings and ends at the resolution timings. For example if in case you want to monitor first 15min breakout levels then Resolution should be set to 15min and Breakout Timings to 0915 – 0930 range
However, if someone needs a customized ORB range then code customization needs to be done accordingly on top of the code.
Code will start plotting the Open Range values only if the Open Range timeframe is completed else nothing will be plotted. For example for an Open Range value of 60min. The plot will start only from 10:15:00 onwards for NSE Futures instruments and will start from 11:00:00 onwards for MCX futures instruments automatically.
Alerts are also added to set automated alerts and can be later triggered into orders. If in case you are new to Automated Orders in Tradingview check out this tutorial
