Display indicator based on another chart

Hi all,

In NT is there a way to display an indicator from one chart, on another for the same instrument. Basically im looking for a way to do the same thing as when you draw a line for example on one chart, then you right click on the line, select properties, and select 'Attach to All charts'. That way you can display drawing objects from a higher time frame, on your lower time frame chart. Is there a way to do that with an indicator?

Many thanks.

two data bases

Put two data bases in the same chart. In the same zone. Make the second data base invisible and apply to it the indicator. Now you will see the first database with the indi of the second one. If it does not work, invert the order in the databases. Some indis only work off the first database, even if it is not the one you showing in the chart.

Thanks for the reply. I've been trying something like that, but it doesn't seem to work because the bars are not spaced correctly when two data series are on the same chart panel.

Below are screenshots of my settings. The 300 tick is the primary but it is not displaying correctly because of the 3000 tick higher timeframe.

Any suggestions?

You are running into the NT limitation of equidistant bar spacing not being available with multiple dataseries on one chart. The only workaround I see would be to adapt the indicator that then can convert to another timeframe.

Argh! What a pain!

So even with a relatively simple indicator such as a moving average, there is no quick way to display the moving average based on a higher timeframe chart, on your lower time frame chart.

Darn.

Just create a custom indy with a second data series added.

E.g. in Initialize:
 
Code
Add (PeriodType.Tick, 3000);

E.g. in OnBarUpdate:
 
Code
if (CurrentBar < 100)
    return;

f (BarsInProgress == 0)
{
    Plot0.Set(SMA (Closes[1], 21)[0]);
}
And whatever variations or extra parameters you want to add of course.

Travel Well

Cool, thanks for the tip. Im busy giving it a go now.

However I just used the SMA as an example. What im actually wanting to do is to plot the PriceActionSwing indicator from my higher timeframe, on the lower time frame. Specifically, just the Swing labels. Not the zigzag lines etc.

I haven't been able to get the code to work yet, but will keep on trying.

I have the following and it works:
First data series is a 5 minutes, invisible and has a sma,
second data series is a one minute, candlestic and visible.
Maybe only works in minute charts?

hmmm, not sure why that works but not the tick charts. There are always 5 x 1 minute bars in one 5 minute bar. So you can space them correctly. And in my example there are always 10 x 300 tick bars in my 3000 tick chart. Yet yours works and mine doesn't. Confused.
