    Show indicator from another timeframe

    Hi, I have a strategy working on at some timeframe.
    Lets say 60 minutes. I am using also context chart with another timeframe eg. 1 day. (I am using an indicator SMA from this context chart).

    So I have two questions:
    1) How can I show the indicator from the secon timeframe (1 day), at the 5minutes chart?

    2) Is it possible to show the chart of second timeframe (1day) at the same window? How?

    Hello Luigio,

    Thanks for your questions.

    1) How can I show the indicator from the second timeframe (1 day), at the 5minutes chart?
    The indicator can add the MTF plot by assigning the plot value in BarsInProgress 0. This way, the plot represents the last value before that primary data series creates another data point. Please see the attached example for a demonstration.

    If you are adding an indicator based on an additional data series that is added in the strategy, you could follow an approach similar to the example linked below that assigns the indicator value on BarsInProgress == 0.

    Plotting from a strategy - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help..._a_ninjasc.htm

    Further Multi Time Frame reference can be found here - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...nstruments.htm

    2) Is it possible to show the chart of second timeframe (1day) at the same window? How?
    You could add plots for the Open High Low and Close values, but I could not advise a supported way to add the data series to the chart like the primary data series.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

      Perfect thanks. One more thing. How can I show the indicator from different time frame on Price panel?

        Hello Luigio,

        The indicator that Add()'s the plots will need to have its Overlay property set to true for those plots to appear in the Price panel. (Set in Initialize())

        Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help.
