Stochastic of a Stochastic

Hi,

Is there a way to create an indicator that uses the output of another indicator, as the input for another indicator in EasyLanguage.

I'm trying to create a stochastic indicator based on a stochastic. (Similar to double stochastic, but not quite).

I have a Slow Sto %K(60),%D(1) and want to run a stochastic over this indicator. All the low, high functions reference the underlying symbol, not the output of the stochastic. Are there any other functions that I can use? Or is there another way to reference the output of the indicator?

Thanks

you can write the indicator with EasyLanguage.

I thought you said you wanted to do a Stochastic of a Stochastic.

Of course you use the Stochastic function.

stochastic function will refer to the price of the underlying symbol ie lowest price over the last x period. Doing a stochastic function of the output, still won't look at the output as it will still call the price functions, which will look at the symbols price.

Put the numericref values once again into the function, in my example the Slowk. You can use any of the 4 return values FastK, FastD, SlowK, SlowD.

 
Code
inputs: 
	PriceH( High ),  
	PriceL( Low ), 
	PriceC( Close ), 
	StochLength( 14 ), 
	SmoothingLength1( 3 ),                                        
	SmoothingLength2( 3 ),                                
	SmoothingType( 1 ),                                         
	OverSold( 20 ), 
	OverBought( 80 ) ; 

variables:
	mFastK( 0 ), 
	mFastD( 0 ), 
	mSlowK( 0 ), 
	mSlowD( 0 ),
	dFastK( 0 ), 
	dFastD( 0 ), 
	dSlowK( 0 ), 
	dSlowD( 0 ) ;

Value1 = Stochastic( PriceH, PriceL, PriceC, StochLength, SmoothingLength1, 
 SmoothingLength2, SmoothingType, mFastK, mFastD, mSlowK, mSlowD) ;

//Stochastic of the SlowK stochastic
value2 = Stochastic( mSlowK, mSlowK, mSlowK, StochLength, SmoothingLength1, 
 SmoothingLength2, SmoothingType, dFastK, dFastD, dSlowK, dSlowD) ;


Plot1( mSlowK, "SlowK" ) ;
Plot2( mSlowD, "SlowD") ;

//SlowK and SlowD stochastic of the SlowK stochastic
Plot11( dSlowK, "dSlowK" ) ;
Plot12( dSlowD, "dSlowD") ;

Plot3( OverBought, "OverBot" ) ;
Plot4( OverSold, "OverSld" ) ;
