Default Signals and Conditions on different Time Frame


In Strategy builder
I'm not sure how to add a Condition that will be based on a different Time Frame vs the one that the strategy will be running. ie: strategy trading on 30' bar charts but one of the conditions needs to follow the Daily bars.
When I select for example EMA, I can select the parameters/period but not the reference series.

Many thanks as usual.

Thank you for the post.

First, you will add any additional series in the Additional Data tab. See image SS1. Here I have a 1 tick series added.

Then in the conditions and actions tab, you have the option to select the series you would like the function to act upon. See SS2.

In image SS3, I am comparing the EMA of the 1 tick series to the low price of the primary series.

Here is a help guide page on working with multi-time frames and multi-instrument scripts:

Please let us know if we may be of any further assistance.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

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. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
