One problem I found witht he Activity Bar high and low zone levels is that
they don't always update properly when realtime data is being used. That
would affect the values for the developing bar. One difference in the AB's
and Market Profiles is that the AB's center the distribution box on the
longest row of cells(mode price) whereas MP's position the box on the best
fit of ~70% of the TPO's or cells which is often not the same as Mode Price.
Getting on to the coding, have you tried using the AB functions of
AB_ModePrice and the AB_StdDev? Upper level would be either AB_ModePrice +
0.5*AB_StdDev or +AB_StdDev. I haven't tried coding for these but have been
thinking about it.
