Higher Tops and Bottoms

highrtopsnbots.gifHigher Tops and Bottoms indicate rising prices, and occur when the following two conditions are met.

  • The high of a bar is higher than the previous high, AND
  • The low of a bar is higher than the previous low.

Functionally it is the exact opposite of the Lower Tops and Bottoms Hi-Lite.

Display Settings

Double-left mouse-click on the Higher Tops and Bottoms' Hi-Lite's label to open the Higher Tops and Bottoms Properties dialog box.

Color and Display

In the example at right, the bar changes color to indicate a higher top and higher bottom for the interval. No bullet is displayed. This is the default for this Hi-Lite.

The color of the indicator bar can be changed, and the following display options are available:

  • Color change for the bar, bullet not displayed (default setting)
  • Colored bullet and colored bar (both Style check boxes, Display Bullet and Change Bar Color, selected)
  • Colored bullet, no color change for the bar (un-check Change Bar Color)
Optional Bullet Display and Position

The indicator bullets can be selected to be displayed. The default is not to display them.

The bullets can be either a Dot or Dash. Also, the position of the indicator can be set to display at either the Open, High, Low or Close level for the interval.
