    Putting the 1 minute 200 SMA on a 3 minute chart

    Can you please explain how I would superimpose the 200SMA (1 Minute) onto a chart with a different timeframe???

    Thx.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your note.

    Can you please clarify if you are going to have both the 1 Minute and 3 Minute bars included in the single chart window or only 3 Minute displayed?

    I look forward to assisting you further.

      Is this where you can divide by 3?

      200/3= your sma #?

      Or is it the other way, 200*3?

      Sorry, long day @ work

        I would like to have a 3 minute chart, but would like to have the 200SMA (one minute on there). No other items are one minute) ... just the 200SMA. Thx.

          Here's one way you can do it (perhaps not optimal though):

          1. Go to Big Mike Trading dot com
          2. Make a donation to become an "elite member"
          3. Download the indicator called "Visual SMA Multi-Timeframe"

          This indicator will allow you to do exactly what you're asking about. You can even plot minute based SMAs on range and renko charts (or vice versa) if you want.

          Sorry this suggestion isn't free, but it's the only one I know of. Also, I'm not trying to promote the above website, it just happens to be where this indicator resides.

            Thx Mr. Powerballad,

            This capability is available native to Ninja also. When I get it sorted out I'll post it up for you. In the meantime thank you for the suggestion in case I can't solve this soon enough.

              kmpc1,

              In Initialize() add the minute bars:
              Add(PeriodType.Minute, 1);

              In OnBarUpdate() put:
              if (BarsInProgress != 0) return; //Makes sure that the primary bars are the ones being updated
              Plot0.Set(SMA(BarsArray[1], 200)[0]); //Set the SMA plot using the 1 min bars.

              VT
