@Fat Tails has a solution, you need to private message him as to my knowledge it isn't free.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Hi @buckdharma what settings are you using?

There is the "bar period" and the "period" for the actual sma
What are you using for each? No clue but maybe could shed some light on what you are talking about.
Post a pic, plenty of helpful people here. Plus not sure can help but under settings in the indicator there is a setting called"visual" within that there is a setting "auto scale" which by default is set to True, maybe try setting it to false to see if helps in the appearance.


Thanks @Fat Tails for all of your contributions

The VisualSMA is a multi-timeframe indicator which loads secondary bars. For example if you set the bar period to 5 and select minute bars, the indicator will load a secondary bar series of 5-min bars. The indicator period refers to the lookback period for the indicator. For example, if you select the indicator period as 20, the indicator will then calculate a SMA(20) from the bars loaded, which are 5-min bars. This SMA(20) calculated from 5-min bars will be shown on any chart (volume, renko, tick ....) to which you apply the indicator.

You can compare the result with a SMA(20) directly applied to a 5 min chart.
