If it's MCDT, the free version, you can't have customized indicators.

Yes, the free version, but their support told me even in this version customised indicators should work...

Hmm. That is directly contradicting their website.

1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.

There are two Spread indicators in MCDT - Spread-Ratio and Spread-Difference.

Spread - Diff:
inputs: DataSeries1( Close of data1 ), DataSeries2( Close of data2 ) ;

Plot1( DataSeries1 - DataSeries2, "SprdDiff" ) ;

Spread - Ratio
inputs: DataSeries1( Close of data1 ), DataSeries2( Close of data2 ) ;

if DataSeries2 <> 0 then
Plot1( DataSeries1 / DataSeries2, "SprdRatio" ) ;

While you can't customize the scripts of these studies, you can change the inputs.
