haho,

yes, the three time frames in your example would be three data series. Getting a study in the Scanner to use more than one data series will require some advanced methods. You'd need to send the additional data to the study using external DLLs (like EasyLanguage Collections for example).
In MC.NET you can directly load the additional data streams within the study code, but in regular MC you can't.

I have exactly the same question?
ShruggedAtlas did you get this to work to your satisfaction? if so how did you get this to work and is there a thread with more info on this or where can I find more info on this?

What does MC mean with "one data serie"? Is GBPUSD on 3 time frames (15M, 60M and Daily) three data series?

Thanks

Thanks,
Does this mean that MC.net would be the better / easier platform for these kind of scanning methods?
I cant seem to find info or manuals for this (EL_essentials) dosn't mention this. Do you have any suggestions where I can find this kind of (programming) info? I have tried google.

haho,

yes, MC.NET is probably easier for doing that, simply because it allows it by using build in methods. But in the end it comes down to your programming skills anyway, those define what is easy or not for you.

The first link that Google comes up here when I search for EasyLanguage Collections should give you the information you need to get an overview: https://www.tradestation.com/Discussions/DATA/20041222135612ELCollections.doc

I never did and in fact I ended up changing my whole methodology. I got tired of doing technical analysis on individual stocks who were moving with the market as a whole and moved to analysis and trading on etfs that tracked the market and futures. it made the process much easier for me.
