    Hello mdanial6,

    You can use the 'Input series' setting for this purpose. You can find it in the Indicator menu for each indicator. If you click the 'Input series' field, a new window opens to select the input used to calculate the indicator. By default, it is set to the Close price of the instrument selected in the chart. If you double click the Indicators folder under Available, you can select an indicator instead.

    Let me know if this will not work for you.

        Can you please open the Indicator menu and select the Bollinger, set Scale justification to Left or Overlay. Click OK.

          Indicator overlay on indicator

          After following your method I was only able to have ROC use as data series the 2nd indicator...I was trying for ROC to have the asset close price, and have a 2nd indicator overlay on ROC window to visualize relationship between them....any ideas?

            Hello timesup,
            Can you please clarify what the second indicator is that you are attempting to put on the ROC?

                  Hello timesup,
                  Can you please clarify if this is what you are attempting? The ROC will be the blue and ZigZag will be the Orange.

                      Hello timesup,
                      I would recommend the following:
                      - Add the ROC and Zig Zag indicator as normal (on their respective panels)
                      - Select the Zig Zag indicator (so the black box anchor points appear)
                      - Click and drag the Zig Zag indicator into the ROC panel

                      This is how I achieved the setup within the last screenshot.
