I don't know of any way you call an indicator from another indicator.

If your objective is a modified indicator eg. MACD with a few tweaks. Why not just open the original and save it with a new name. Then tweak away...

It's not difficult to make you own based on the originals as many of the indicators are just made up from a few function calls. eg. the MACD indicator calls the MACD function and XAverage for the trigger.

What are you try to do?

We don't have a function that returns equity curve value. So you should calculate it on your own.
Later we will introduce it.
