    Love it. I was looking for something similar to Cycle Line in MT4 and was quite disappointed to not find a built-in version in CTrader. Now I’m very happy. It’s even better than Cycle Line in MT4. Just one thing to maybe improve it: a function to save all my parameters. It’s a bit annoying that I have to reset all my parameters each time I want to use it or if I want to use it with another symbol.

    This tool is great for me, and I find a tiny little thing you might help me make it be much fit to my requirement.

    I want it only to apply to the current day, however, I can’t set the ‘Past Days’ and ‘Future Days’ to 0. Keep both with value 1, it will display the highlights for the past and next days.

    Can you possible revise it and notify me when it is available.

    Thanks very much.
