Not a programming question but more of a question what am i not seeing....Find attached 3 charts of Silver, Crude Oil and FESX. I used the drop down menu from the same chart to switch to each future's contract. On the FESX chart, I can not get the visualema to color the bars correctly. I can pull any symbol up and it colors the bars correctly. For some strange odd reason that I am stumped, I can't pull up FESX. I normally wouldn't fret on this, but I love this indicator and FESX to trade. I have tried opening a new chart, same results. I have tried reloading ninjascript for the chart, same results. I am totally stumped why this is only happening on this one particular future's contract. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Global line plotting for instrument like horizontal lines allow?


I have an indi that plots a series of levels on a 5 min chart that I'd like to display on all charts of the same instrument, like NT allows a built-in horizontal line to do. Haven't been able to get this working though for an indi. Is this possible?

Thanks!

Would it be possible to construct a multi time frame SuperTrend. A SuperTrend based on higher time frame could filter out wipsaws on a native time frame SuperTrend

@zxxaxz, Try setting anaSuperTrendU11 to offset multiplier of 4.5!

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

You can often create a higher time frame version of an indicator by simply changing the parameters. This solution is technically superior to loading secondary bars from a different bar series.

The SuperTrend uses 3 parameters

- the period for the baseline
- the period for the offset smoothing
- the offset multiplier

If you wish to calculate the SuperTrend for a higher timeframe, say a timeframe (x3), then you would need

- multiply the baseline period by 3
- multiply the offset period by 3
- multiply the offset multiplier by SQRT(3)

The chart attached shows a dual SuperTrend with a lower and a higher timeframe. The higher timeframe was chosen as (x3). The blue areas show an uptrend for both timeframes. The red areas show a downtrend for both time frames. The gray areas show where higher and lower timeframe are in contradiction.

VisualEMA/SMA on Daily bars?

Hi @Fat Tails

Thanks for your amazing work! I juz got my hands on your indicators as I'm new to NT and I'm already loving it!

Can the Visual EMA/SMA access Daily Bar type? or is there a way to achieve having different time periods of Daily EMA/SMAs on same chart?

I went through the thread and did not seem to get the answer, sorry if i missed it

thanks!

You can set the VisualEMA / VisualSMA to 1440 min, and it will display a daily SMA or EMA.

In that case SMA or EMA will be calculated from the last traded prices as per session template.
