Autotrendlines applied to an indicator as opposed to price..

Postby kelly simon » 03 Oct 2008

Hey guys,
I am wondering if there is anyway that I can get the auto-trendlines feature to plot on a sub-chart study, rather than on price itself.

Thanks,
Simon

you can plot in the subchart using


TL_New_self

Displays a trendline, with the specified starting and ending points, on the SubChart containing the study; returns a trendline-specific ID number, required to modify the trendline.

Usage

TL_New_self (sDate, sTime, sPriceValue, eDate, eTime, ePriceValue)

Parameters

sDate - a numerical expression specifying the trendline starting point date; the date is indicated in the YYYMMdd format, where YYY is the number of years since 1900, MM is the month, and dd is the day of the month

sTime - a numerical expression specifying the trendline starting point time; the time is indicated in the 24-hour HHmm format, where 1300 = 1:00 PM

sPriceValue - a numerical expression specifying the trendline starting point price value (vertical position, corresponding to a value on the price scale of a chart)

eDate - a numerical expression specifying the trendline ending point date

eTime - a numerical expression specifying the trendline ending point time

ePriceValue - a numerical expression specifying the trendline ending point price value

Example

Display a trendline, that begins at 9:00 AM at a price value of 1381, and ends at 3:00 PM at a price value of 1337, on January 17th, 2008, on the SubChart containing the study:

Value1=TL_New_self(1080117,900,1381,1080117,1500,1337);



about the Autotrendline indicator... what values/lines you would like to plot on the subchart?
