hi everybody, I need an indicator to show the remaining time of current candle to close,

if anyone can create it will be so useful for all members. thank you

GBPUSD: On The Upbeat, Maintains Above The 1.5336 Region
GBPUSD: GBP took back its intra day losses to close higher on Thursday leaving risk of more strength on the cards. On the upside, resistance resides at the 1.5400 level. Further out, resistance resides at the 1.5450 level followed by the 1.5500 level. Its daily RSI is bullish and pointing higher suggesting further strength.

the remaining time of current candle to close?

most case: candle time used integer at it period unit, so get time with more precise, the remaining time is their difference.

example: now period in current graph window is 5 min, th time of current candle to close or open will only be 5 and its multiple.

so use the time not multipleof 5 min, you can get their difference.

not the candle time is server time, your computer's time maybe have some error.

attached may be of use: simple/configurable <secsUsed>/<secsInBar> indicator.

4got mention - <secsUsed> will only update when indicator gets next data tic. must be more clever stuff - maybe use Win API...

IF any make more clever THEN perhaps they post on this thread, OK?
