    Adding a second symbol to a custom indicator

    Hi,

    I'm trying to add a second symbol to a custom indicator with the following format:

    Add(string instrument, PeriodType periodType, int period)
    I'm getting a compile error " No overload for method 'Add' takes '3' arguments."


    How do I add the second symbol?


    Thanks,
    Folls

    Indicators do not support multi-time frame and instruments. This is on our list for future enhancements.

      Can I plot, color a bar, or anything else visual from a strategy? If not, can I put a little arrow without submitting an order in a strategy? I am trying to think of some way to put a marking on one of the symbols.

      Thanks,

      Folls

        You can't create plots from a strategy but you can drive bar/back color and call draw methods.

            This means I can't access 1 minute chart indicator values from a 50 tick chart?

            I think this is what you just said if I understand you correctly.

              Correct.

              For clarification, form a chart, you can't not access an indicator using another time frame.

              Within a strategy, you can accessing indicators from other time frames.

                Thanks. Sorry for being so thick headed. You said it loud and clear the first time.

                I think I might try capturing and saving the value with a custom indicator on the one minute chart. Then I can retrieve the saved value in my existing custom indicator. It is for referencing a long span SMA so I do need to save the value except on barclose of a one minute chart.
