Complete noob programming MTF and nested indicator

I am trying to program a multi time frame strategy, and I just figured out how to do it. I know it is child's play to many of you. But then I thought I might show off a little and try a random indicator within an indicator with the MTF. And keep in mind I have no clue what I am doing.... My little random example is not paying attention to all of my criteria. I dont know why? I may have a misplaced curly brace or my syntax is just wrong. I am not sure. I know this is a stupid calculation, but I am just trying to make sure I can do it if I needed to. Here is what I was trying. Any help would be great!

 protected override void OnBarUpdate()
// OnBarUpdate() will be called on incoming tick events on all Bars objects added to the strategy
            // We only want to process events on our primary Bars object (index = 0) which is set when adding
            // the strategy to a chart
if (BarsInProgress != 0)
// Condition set 1
            // Checks  if the 6 ADXVMA of the Stochastic RSI 50 is greater than the 21 ADXVMA of the Stochastic RSI 50 on the second and third series of Charts
if (ADXVMA(StochRSI(BarsArray[1],50),6).ADXVMAPlot[0] > ADXVMA(StochRSI(BarsArray[1],500),21).ADXVMAPlot[0]&&
ADXVMA(StochRSI(BarsArray[2],50),6).ADXVMAPlot[0] > ADXVMA(StochRSI(BarsArray[2],50),21).ADXVMAPlot[0]);
                if (
ADXVMA(StochRSI(50),6).ADXVMAPlot[0] > ADXVMA(StochRSI(50),21).ADXVMAPlot[0]);
