My question is this, I want to “ import,call or get ” some values from a "big picture" trend, for example daily/weekly chart into intra-day charts.
I don't want to use only one chart with both time frames.
What I really want is to have separated charts, moreover, I want to do the calculations for big picture directly from the Market Analyzer and be able to get those values and Plot them directly into any mini time frame chart.
The values in the big picture chart it should be any, I do not care, named Previous 3 weeks OHLC, I know how to do this, but I don’t know how to take these values from a daily or weekly and call them into another 1 minute execution chart. This is my real question.
There is any example out there you know about this topic? or a simple example I can study and use as a model to create what I want.
Thank you very much in advance for any help.
Perhaps I've misunderstood but if you have long term values that you want to pull into faster/shorter timeframe charts, have you considered writing the values to a file and then allowing the faster timeframe charts to read them?

In any Ninja .cs file you can also use a simple shared 'public static class' declared outside the Strategy and Indicator Namespaces, then anything can see anything in there. You just need to F5 all active chart users if it gets changed. Several Global Variable threads on the forum. Always good to see other ideas though, takes me back to my memory mapping hardware drivers days on Sun workstations (old git here.)

Thanks ratfink. Yes I have tried that. It seems more complicated than that. The issue was charts being out of sync by a tick depending on which dataseries was initialized first. Just F5'ing didn't work. I actually had to reload a different period to set the sync up. Anyway, I will look into the other threads. Cheers!
