    Using SMMA indicator in a custom strategy

    Hi,

    I am using the SMMA indicator that was shared in the indicator forum I have imported the indicator and can add it to my chart.

    I would like to use it in a custom strategy and adding it as a class member gives a compiler error

    private SSMA fast_SSMA_14;

    Error:
    The type or namespace name 'SSMA' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

    Could you please let me know how to access custom indicators from the strategy code?

    Thanks,
    Cha

    The indicator is named SMMA not SSMA.

      Hello chandiram2,

      Tasker-182 is correct, you need to use the correct indicator name.

      If you are unsure on the code needed to use a custom indicator you can use the strategy builder to generate the indicators code. You just need to make a condition that uses the indicator in a new strategy builder script then click view code. You can then see the correct code to use the indicator and can copy/past from that into your script.

        Thanks for the response. I see the typo now!

        I have not used the strategy builder and only directly write the code. Could you please let me know how to make the condition to use the indicator?

        Thanks for your help. Really appreciate it.
