    Doubling a primary dataseries

    Let's say my primary Data Series is 5 Minutes. When I want to utilize another DataSeries of my choice I add it into the code as follows:

    protected override void Initialize()
    {
    Overlay = true;
    Add(PeriodType.Minute, TimeFrameb); //Add(PeriodType.Minute, )
    }


    "Timeframeb" could for example be 10Minutes.

    Sofar so good.

    Now my question. Instead of having to manually input that second DataSeries/Timeframe, is there a way to tell it to just double/2X the primary data series? If so, how would the code for that look like?

    Hello,
    Thank you for your post.
    You can get the value of the primary data series by using BarsPeriod.Value.
    To add a data series that is double the value of the primary data series you could do the following:
    Code:
    protected override void Initialize()
    {
    	Add(PeriodType.Minute, BarsPeriod.Value * 2);
    }
    If we can be of any other assistance please let us know.
