    MTF indicator questions

    I'm writing a signal indicator in which I want to use the value of another indicator (Stoch cycle). I need the value of StochCycle2 for the following : 6 Range, 12Range, 24Range. The indicator will plot these StochCycles on the 6 Range chart in panel 2 for all three and color bars on the price panel based on a formula from my new indicator.

    I've created custom indicators before, but nothing this complex... I have limited knowledge of NinjaScript and C#.

    2 questions:
    1. How do I reference the 2 alternate time frames (12R & 24R)? Do I need to have the charts displayed in these time frames in my workspace?
    2. How do I reference StochCycle2 from its own indicator (I don't want to replicate that code in this new bar coloring indicator).

    I've attached the indicator that I'm trying to reference.

    Appreciate any help.

    Saroj,
    Not aware of the perticular indicator, but I am giving you the basic idea by demonstrating via a SMA. you could easily figure out the rest.

    suppose you are watching a 5 minutes charts (thats the primary bar series, BarsArray[0]) and you want to add 2 addition series say 6 range and 12 range then

    in Initialize add the following lines of code
    Code:
    Add(PeriodType.Range,6);
    Add(PeriodType.Range,12);
    you call the indicator (i am using SMA) as

    Code:
    SMA(Closes[1],14); //calculate the sma14 for the 6 range dataseries 
    SMA(Closes[2],14); // calculate the sma14 for the 12 range dataseries
    you can

      Hi saroj,

      Thanks, bukkan.

      To get an idea of the syntax for referencing custom indicators, the strategy wizard condition builder is good for this. You can create a basic expression there and click view code, then copy paste this into another script.

      General multiseries tips available here.
