Higher High Lower Low


The Higher High Lower Low (HHLL) indicator is a simple indicator that visually represents to the user if a higher high or a lower low has been made.

If a higher high has been made, an up bar in the chosen color will be drawn. If a lower low has been made, a down bar in the chosen color will be drawn. Should a higher high and a lower low be made in the same bar, a bar up and down bar will be drawn in a third color of choice. If an inside-bar is rendered, then no up or down bars will be drawn.

This visual configuration makes it easy for the user to identify if bars are making higher highs or lower lows.


The following are inputs available in the application:

  • Up Color: the color of the up bar drawn when a higher high is made. Default is green.
  • Down Color: the color of the down bar when a lower low is made. Default is red.
  • Both Color: the color of the up and down bar drawn when both a higher high and lower is made. Default is gray.
