Is it possible to stop the daily chart's last candlestick from being updated by after-market fluctuations in price?


Recommended Posts

Hello, I had a quick question. I was wondering if there was a way to disable the ability for data coming in from the after-market hours to affect the current last candlestick's data. I just want the last candlestick on the daily chart to remain unchanged after the close at 1:00 pm EST instead of it's close fluctuating based on prices after hours.

The reason is I have a paintbar that trades based on the candle closes on the historical chart and so usually I decide whether I want to buy or sell a stock after the market has closed and the market has made its official "closing price" for the day (and therefore, whatever candlestick pattern has formed will remain stagnant). However, incoming data from after market hours changes the shape of the last candlestick and that affects the paintbar's result and I don't want it to do that.
