    Can I use a SMA from another input series/chart on my fast tick charts?

    Hi,

    I have a few fast tick charts I'm using. I'd be interested in experimenting with using moving averages from slower minute charts (5-minute) on my tick charts. Basically plotting an indicator on one chart using another series as input. Is this possible in an easy way?

    I tried to implement this by adding a 5-minute chart time series to my existing tick chart. Then I could add the indicator to this chart and output it to the tick chart. But I wouldn't want to have two time series on my chart. I tried deleting the 5-minute chart, but that removed both the 5-minute AND the indicator.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Johnny,

    To add an indicator based off of a 5 minute chart, plotted over a tick chart, please follow the instructions below:

    * First create a tick chart as usual (New > Chart...)
    * Right click within your chart window and select Data Series...
    * Add a second data series, the same instrument as your tick chart, but set the parameters to be a 5 minute chart
    * You should now see two-paneled chart with a tick chart on top and 5 minute below
    * Next, right click and select Indicators... Find your indicator in the top left hand corner, and click New to add it.
    * In the parameters to the right, set your Input Series to your 5 minute data series (Close)
    * Set your Panel to 1,and click OK
    * Next, move your pointer to the right of your price axis (y-axis) on the top panel of your chart window, and right click>Maximize.

    You now should see a tick chart, with an indicator plotted over it based off of a 5 minute Data series.

    If I may be of further assistance, please let me know.
