Does anyone know how to achieve the following result?

I would like to create an indicator that plots the percentage change from yesterday’s close of user-input symbols. For example: chart SPY but plot the percentage change of DIA, IWM, and QQQ as well!

using legacy EasyLanguage you can access other instruments or time frames that are present on the chart as additional data streams only. If you want the flexibility to type in an instrument in the inputs and have the code access the data for it you could accomplish this using Object Oriented EasyLanguage PriceSeries Providers.
