    For this question, I wasn’t sure to post it here or in ‘feature requests’ forum.
    So here goes.

    I often calculate the degrees of price movement from Pivot 1 to Pivot 2 e.g Lo to Hi, using hexagon chart.
    e.g Lo = 10, Hi = 144
    The degree movement is 1800 + 35 = 1835, using the Hex Chart manually.
    i.e 5 circles from value 10 on chart (5 x 360 = 1800)  + 35degrees to reach 144

    Is there a function(s) in Optuma scripting which i can use to calculate above?
    I was hoping to instrument that calculation in the Time price Measure tool as a new label.

    Any guidance will be appreciated.

    Hi Aneez

    No there is no easy way but what we can do in a future version is add the calculation to the TPL tool. We already do that for Sq9 measures (although I just noticed we called it “Price” when it should be “Angle”).

    All the best

    Thx Mathew,

    That will be great if that is available in some future version.

    Just to expand on my use case, I usually calculate this manually with hex chart now (not just the angle but the total degrees from one price to another price as per example earlier), after which i perform couple of other calculations with the total degrees to arrive at a final value. I use that final value in my analysis.
    I was hoping i can automate that with scripts within TPM tool. Ideally a new function within Optuma scripting would allow me to do that. hexp(P1,P2)

    I am not sure TPL will allow me to automate in my use case.
    Anyway, if you do consider this feature for a future version, I would be keen to have a phone discussion or screen share to explain that better at that time.

    Many thanks for the quick response.
