Hi,
Can anyone create a study/indicator in TOS that can display the time left before a candle closes? In short time frames it can display mm:ss , in the longer time frames it can display hh:mm:ss like in tradingview). Thanks in advanced

Any TOS coders who want to create this study? It sounds like it should be a simple one.

I hate to say it, but I don't believe it's possible with ThinkScript. The built-in function of GetTime() only returns the start time of the current candle, not what the actual time is. Without access to a real-time clock, there's no way to get a true countdown timer.
