I agree with @cory.

It is beneficial to also learn about the actual platform of NT7 (that I am assuming you have loaded already and working) from the NT7 Help Guides. Here is a link to the Help Guides that you can pull up from the help Control Center of NT7 or just click here. After doing that I highly recommend going to the Video Library and watching all; but the Working with Indicators ones should answer your questions about indicators. There is no need to combine the indicators as they are in C# and will all three load into your NT7.

Curious though as you mention Price Line as an indicator, I thought it was just a function of the chart, the third pull down from where you see your Instrument Symbol in your chart tool bar. Also the Bar Closing color change is a function of how you set up your Data Series, but I think you may be referring to a different indicator that changes the bars, maybe based on a cross over, or some other parameter?

You will find that NT7 is like a big erector set. At first you have nothing but stuff and in time you will be able to have the charts, graphs, market metrics that you desire for trading.

Hope this helps.

Thanks bill & @cory

Appreciate the time you have put in to answer my question,
I have been using NT7 for several years and have all the mentioned down pat, my concern was are multiple indi's more of a CPU drain than a combined one, plus it would be a cool indi as it applies to PA traders as an important tool to when and where price is about to complete

Cheers angelo

Angelo,

Thanks to @bobwest as he recognized the indicator had an answer that looks like it should work and here is the link @perryg also added some more info and suggested to go to this link for more information and informs us that the programmer is @Erez.

NT7 is one of those programs that I have found the more I learn about it the more I find I have a lot more to learn. Won't it be great when NT8 comes out and we have even more to learn

Have a great weekend.

Angelo,

Option 4.1.4 in the MA Slope indicator should have the options shown below. That is provided the others recognized your indicator correctly as I am not familiar with it.
Pic the indicator that you want on top and assign it Box three for Option 4.1.4.
Pic the indicator that you want in the middle and assign it Box two Option 4.1.4.
Pic the indicator that you want in the middle and assign it Box one Option 4.1.4.
From what I've read it appears you have loaded the indicator three times with box one selected three times and that is what is causing your stacking on the same position of the chart.

I am getting this from the diagram below and from the links I sent you.
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



Hopefully this will solve the problem you mentioned.
If you don't have Option 4.1.4, then maybe see about getting the updated version of your indicator.
