Default Daily/Weekly EMA on Intraday Chart

Hello, I've created an indicator to display a higher time frame EMA on a intraday chart.

However, the goal is to show a daily EMA on the intraday chart or a weekly/monthly EMA on a daily chart.

The indicator plots HTF minutes, seconds, ticks, etc. EMAs fine on the intraday chart. But when I choose Day,Weekly, or Monthly as BarPeriodType on a intraday or daily chart the indicator no longer plots.

Without posting the whole code, the major items are below. Can you please advise what may be causing the daily, weekly and monthly aggregations to not plot. Thanks

Hello EC_Chris,

A plot will have bar slot for every primary bar.

The plot will only show between bars that have values set consecutively.

If bar 0 has a value set, bar 1 has a value set, bar 2 does not have a value, and bar 3 has a value set, the plot will only show between bars 0 and 1 and will not show between 1 and 2 or 2 and 3.

May I confirm you have a value set for every primary bar in the plot?

You can use .IsValidDataPoint() to ensure a value is set on a series.

Below is a publicly available link to the help guide.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight.
