Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Is there a way to achieve having different time periods of Daily EMA/SMAs on same chart?

Add the indicator multiple times.

For example, if you want 2 different VisualEMA's on the chart, just right click and add the indicator (again), just like you did when adding the first indicator.

Update the 2nd VisualEMA parameters as desired ... all "duplicate" indicators & parameters are kept separate, and display separately on the chart, as you would expect.

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.

Thank you! Shouldve thought of that
