    Multi Time Frame Indicator

    I am trying to plot the 60 min Heiken Ashi over the 5 min chart. It should look like this:

    This was on tradingview. However, when I try to do this within NT8 by adding multiple time frames and then plotting the 60 min on the 5 min chart, it looks like this:

    Is there an indicator setting that causes the stair stepping effect or does that need to be scripted?

    Hello,

    Thanks for your post.

    Yes, there's almost certainly a setting that is not identical to the chart you are comparing to. I'm not sure what the specific indicator you are using is, but I suspect it would have to with either the Period setting or Strength setting, if the indicator has such settings. If you can clarify what indicator this is and if its a stock indicator, a purchase from a vendor, or an indcator you personally coded, we could have a better idea. Can you also attach a screenshot of the indicator settings for both these charts?

    I look forward to your reply.

      The indicator is the EMA1 (Close) for the 1 hour Heiken Ashi, however, on a 5 minute chart. The indicator is called the KAMA and is a simple, open source, public indicator available on Tradingview's indicators list. It is in pinescript. The indicator is more complex than this. I had made them invisible to keep the question simply focused on the one indicator. However, here is the source code and the input parameters. Click image for larger version

        Hello smcllr,

        Thanks for your reply.

        If you are looking for the KAMA indicator there is one that is standard with NinjaTrader.

        I've attached a screenshot that shows 5 minute ES 12-21 bars and the chart has a hidden 60 minute Heiken-ashi bar. I've added the KAMA indicator (Blue plot) with its standard settings of fast=2, slow=30, and period = 10 and applied that to the hidden 60 minute Heiken-Ashi bars of the chart. I've also applied a 1 period SMA to the 60 minute bars (gold plot).

        When an indicator is plotted on a higher time frame, on the chart, the chart indicator only has (in this case), a 60-minute close value every 12 5-minute bars. The plot will draw a straight line from one 60-minute actual data point to another 60-minute actual data point and this would be expected.

        I think you are looking to achieve this (below):

        This is a custom indicator that draws a plotline on every 5 minute chart bar at the value of the last closed 60-minute bar. You could create something like this if you wish, the code is shown in Ninjascript which is based on C#. The actual data points between this and the other chart are the same, the only difference is purely of appearance.

          Hi Paul,

          Thanks for your reply.

          I am aware of the KAMA indicator. I think it is different in some way because I cannot get it to recreate the same price levels. Same with the MTF indicator which also had played around with.

          Is there no way to call a Heiken Ashi ticker from within the ninjascript to be applied to any standard 5 minute chart within one strategy or indicator? I just want this to be in one indicator that I can try and back test a crossover.

          Please advise on where I might learn how to do this?

          Thanks again,

          Sam

            Hello Sam,

            Thanks for your reply.

            If you take a look at the code screenshot I showed in post#4, it demonstrates adding a 60 minute bar (not a heiken-ashi bar but it would be relatively the same) and then plotting on each bar of the 5 minute bars the value of the close of that 60 minute bar.

            Here is a link to the help guide that covers multi time frame/instrument coding: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...nstruments.htm While this is a long read it does cover all aspects of the coding considerations.

            In addition, here is a link on AddHeikenAshi() method: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...heikenashi.htm
