Multiple time frames in one indicator

Hello everyone,

I am hoping someone could help me out.

Is there a way to display multiple time frames of an indicator on 1 chart, with 1 indicator?

IE. I would like the indicator to plot the results of a 500 tick bar, 1500 tick bar & 4500 tick bar chart. Same symbol of course.

What I am hoping for is that the indicator would plot 3 lines (one for each time-frame) if I were viewing a 500 tick bar chart for example. I am trying to do this on the Emini.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Donovan

Below is the indicator & the associated function.




Indicator:

Inputs: TCLen(10), MA1(23), MA2(50);
plot1(_SchaffTC(TCLen,MA1,MA2),"Schaff_TLC");
plot2(25);
plot3(75);


Function:

Inputs: TCLen(NumericSimple), MA1(NumericSimple), MA2(NumericSimple);
Variables: XMac(0), Frac1(0), PF(0), PFF(0), Frac2(0), Factor(.5);
{Calculate a MACD Line}
XMac = MACD(c,MA1,MA2) ;
{1st Stochastic: Calculate Stochastic of a MACD}
Value1 = Lowest(XMac, TCLen);
Value2 = Highest(XMac, TCLen) - Value1;
{%FastK of MACD}
Frac1 = IFF(Value2 > 0, ((XMac - Value1) / Value2) * 100, Frac1[1]);
{Smoothed calculation for %FastD of MACD}
PF = IFF(CurrentBar<=1, Frac1, PF[1] + (Factor * (Frac1 - PF[1])));
{2nd Stochastic: Calculate Stochastic of Smoothed Percent FastD, �PF�, above.}
Value3 = Lowest(PF, TCLen);
Value4 = Highest(PF, TCLen) - Value3;
{%FastK of PF}
Frac2 = IFF(Value4 > 0, ((PF - Value3) / Value4) * 100, Frac2[1]);
{Smoothed calculation for %FastD of PF}
PFF = IFF(CurrentBar<=1, Frac2, PFF[1] + (Factor * (Frac2 - PFF[1])));
{The STC function is the %FastD of PF}
_SchaffTC= PFF;

Donovan2580,

you could accomplish what you have in mind using price series providers that load the additional datastreams, but this will most require modifications to your indicator code, too (besides the additional code for the providers).

Regards,

ABCTG
