Multiple Time Frame candles

Hello,
I noticed a MT4 indicator in the download section that I think would be useful for my trading, and I was curious about having a version scripted for TOS. The indicator is called Big Candles, essentially it plots a 1 hour candle with a slight transparency over say, a 5 or 15 min chart. See here for an idea : https://futures.io/local_resize.php?linkid=256&size=0

The version I would like to have scripted for TOS would have an adjustable 2nd time frame rather than fixed.
Also colours and level of opaqueness/transparency would be handy as well.

This would be a paid job if someone here is able to do this (and if this is possible within TOS).

Let me know your thoughts, and thanks for your time. Cheers - J

The longer I have been trading the less stuff I tend to use. 2 timeframes, a few MA's and watch price action as it unfolds.

I think that NinjaTrader has this ability. Maybe someone who uses Ninja could post the code so it could be modified into TS

It is possible to do such study but the function used for ths is still undocumented. So i'm not sure it is ready for public use.
It looks like this

I found a video on youtube that shows what it looks like in Ninja.
Do a google search for "can ninjatrader overlay 2 time frames on same chart" (Soory can't post link - not enough posts yet). The one I found is not in English, but fast forward toward the end and you'll see.
