Creating Index Charts

Hi,

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.

Maybe I'm missing something, but if you remove the HA indicator, doesn't it just revert to a simple candlestick chart ?

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.
