A Generic Overlay with alert, based on color change, would open up a world of possibilities.

Thanks

easytrading,
It is possible in theory.
The problem is, to have a candle overlay in one indicator,
we have to have the whole bar of data.
Only In theory u can write a signal indicator indicator,
on the basis of which, Overlay will be generated.

kindly, Apprentice a strategy based on color changing for GENERIC OVERLAY will be a great help,

buy on green
sell on red
disregard the gray
close old and open a new position on opposite color.

many thanks and appreciation as always in advance.

I'm using the position relation to signal line and smoothing on the 1 minute chart. I'm sometimes getting a repainting of colors when I refresh the charts. Is this to be expected?

Unfortunately, we can not read all indicator output types.
One example would be the fractal indicator.
At best, some of them require a different logic.
Therefore we can not provide a generic solution for all indicators out there.
