    Calculating an indicator on a secondary instrument with BarsArray

    When I use the BarsArray to calculate a moving average of a secondary instrument, what data is it using? That is, given the code below, is this an SMA of the Close? What if I want to calculate the SMA of the Typical price instead?

    aveSecondary = SMA(BarsArray[1], secondaryPeriod)[0];

    Hi RandomTask,

    Thank you for posting.

    You are correct, the SMA will use the closing price to calculate the moving average by default unless otherwise specified.

    If you want to change the value to a Typical price instead, you will need to changed the BarsArray[1] to -
    Code:
    SMA(Typicals[1], secondaryPeriod)[0];
    I made the change in the color red.

    I am attaching a link to the online help guide on the Typicals series, as well as using Multi-Time frame & Instruments.
