    Plot an indicator value from a different chart

    Is there a way to plot the value of an indicator from a different chart? For example: I am looking at a 3-minute chart. I want to calculate the SMA(14) from a volume bar chart and plot that value on the 3-minute chart.

    Hello AmishTrader,

    Yes, this is possible by adding both a 3 Minute and Volume data series in one chart. Subsequently add the SMA and set 'Input series' to the Close price of the Volume data series. Set 'Panel' to the same panel as the 3 Minute data series. The SMA will now be calculated on the Volume price bars, but it will be plotted on the 3 Minute price bars.

    You can minimize the panel of the Volume data series. Click and hold your left mouse button on the horizontal line that divides the panels and move to the bottom.

      Thanks. That was easy! I put the Volume data series in the same panel and set all colors to transparent and autoscale false. OMG, I can't believe I never pursed how to do this. For years, I glanced at the other chart for the value and moved my chart trader entry line accordingly. Today I manually drew little arrows on my 3-min chart and then thought, "wait a minute, NT should be able to plot this line very easily." I just couldn't find it in the help screens.
