I have been using a roughly made chart showing indices of currencies. This shows the comparative strength and weakness of a currency in isolation - the same as the dollar index, but for GBP, JPY, AUD, EUR (see attached image)
I have achieved this by pulling up a chart and adding the Heiken Ashi indi. This is a bar type but available as an indicator. I then set the input series for the HA indi as the Index indi which allows a weighted series of symbols to be fed in, and then present those in separate panels, minimising the primary dataseries which is irrelevant for my purposes.
I am not satisfied with the solution as it stands as I would much prefer to use conventional bar types, such as candlesticks or OHLC - but can not work out how to do it?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

No the index indicator will only plot as a line (if I remember correctly), I am feeding it into a bar type which is HA as it's the only bar type I can find that is coded as an indicator. I'm after a way to get the index in conventional bar type format: candlestick, OHLC, etc.
