sensitivity multi-timeframe trick (small timeframe on bigger one)
I hope it's the right place to post the following message.
I'm trying to create a test sample indicator which color candles from MA crossing from timeframe 1min to any timeframe (will test 5min for the exemple).
I coded it and after blindfolding it, I find it is out of sync between 1min colored on 5min ...and 1min standalone.
I'm not sure if this is my fault (programming mistake) or a bug from Ninja. Could you please have the look if you have the skills for it ? Thanks a lot
Here are the 2 indicators :
- Sensitivity (which is the one coloring 5min from 1min MA crossing) is to be added on a 5min chart
- SensitivityDoubleCheck is to be added on a 1min chart (it's the indicator without multiframing)
If you let them run together, you'll see that they are from time to time out of sync.
Like on this chart, the left screen is the "normal 1min" and on the right the "1 on 5min". At 15h35 the "1 on 5" should be colored Lime already. When live testing the neutral color DarkViolet just 1 minute before dit not report correctly on the right screen neither.

I posted this on the Elite section but got no help (maybe it was the wrong thread/forum)
I now count on you because Ninja support sort of replied to me than multi-framing would kind of work on the way : big timeframe displayed on small timeframe. But that the contraray (small on big timeframe) might ....errr, overload and not be accurate.
The concept is simple and aims to be adaptated to many indicators (the SMA condition is just an exemple).
The purpose is that when you're approaching a potential reversal zone, you have to react and behave more quickly and accuratly. Thus, you need to lower timeframe to do that and it sounds more useful to do it without switching off your primary main timeframe.
