Hi there, I installed COT indicator. But, the graph doesn't look the way it is displayed here: with green bars for shorts and red for longs. There are only red bars for both, longs and shorts and they displayed very similar to COTA indicator: longs followed by shorts and so on. Please advise.

You probably have set the Combined option to Yes.
If you set it to No, you will get Long and Short component separately.

I plan facelift for this indicator.

Hi Apprentice, thx, it worked. I could not find the instructions for settings though. Just a suggestion: could you please provide some instructions for indicator settings. I know, for programmers it seems redundant and boring to explain how the program you design works. But, for new users as I am, even the simple instructions would be very useful. Once again, thank you for your contribution to the platform.
