Inside Days

insidays.gifInside Days occur when the volatility of price or the range is decreased and the range of high and low price is within the range of high and low for the previous day.

An Inside Day occurs when both of the following conditions are met:

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

Functionally it is the exact opposite of the Outside Days Hi-Lite.

Display Settings

Double-left mouse-click on the Inside Days' Hi-Lite's label to open the Inside Days Properties dialog box.

Color and Display

In the example at right, the bar changes color to indicate intervals that meet the Inside Days criteria. 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.
