Indicator of a Indicator

Postby Guest » 06 Feb 2009

How do I incorporate an indicator on any existing indicator or study that I have on a chart?

When I've done that, I make one indicator into a function, then call that function in the indicator on the chart, or just build them into one, in the power editor.

Not quite sure I understand your question, but you can do anything with an indicator number that you could do with, say, close.
Of course an "indicator" (in PL-speak) is a display, not a function, and cannot be called in order to get the value; but in most cases the indicators call similarly-named functions to get the value to plot. Your code can call this same function and then you can do averages or whatever on that value, and then plot it if you want to.

Did that answer the question? If not, maybe you could clarify with an example of what you are looking for.

Thanks for the replies to my post. To clarify my question a little more, I am looking for a easier way to put a moving average on a indicator, what ever it is. I known I can use the power language editor to modify a script but I was looking for an easier way. Thanks

here's one way to do it
see attached for illustration.

the reverse is a bit more difficult because Stochastics has 7 inputs and 4 outputs.
