Try these steps for an indicator in an indicator, but it seems it's not what you're looking for.

This is how you would do that in the source code :

myCCI = WoodiesCCI(2, 5, 50, 34, 25, 6, 60, 100, 2);
myCCIEMA34 = EMA (myCCI,34);

The first line creates a CCI, the second line creates an average 34 (ema) on the woodies, to smoothen it.

This would go in the Initialiaze () of your strategy

protected override void Initialize()
          myCCI = WoodiesCCI(2, 5, 50, 34, 25, 6, 60, 100, 2);
          myCCIEMA34 = EMA (myCCI,34);  // added a 34 EMA on CCI

You could then start using this in

protected override void OnBarUpdate()
         if (myCCI[0] < myCCIEMA34[0] )
           // CCI is below it's 34 average
           // do something here...
hope this helps you..
wish you good trading

modified CCI


is there somebody who can have a look on the attached indicator. It is compiled but from strange reason it is not taking value correctly.

I am not programer so I have only limited knowledge of C++.

I managed to change calculation of the CC and use it in different indicator. Basicly some sort of smoothing. The idea is to change color when CCI is going up or down if it exceed value set.

Idealy to have same color in background until set delta will indicate change and have arrow in input series as possible entry (this will be the next programing nut )

I tried some modifications but I am running in the circules

Your help is very appreciated in advance.

Thank you
