It is not possible to apply indicators on other indcators. There is a way - functions. For instance if you want to apply MA on RSI, then in MA price input you should type expression RSI(Close, 14).

Hello Andrew, 
I did submit the MC-250 which is a duplicate feature request of this ticket.
Some weeks ago I did ask how to do such a thing by chat, and the tip I was given was the same as the one you mention bellow. In my case it was to input macd(close,x,y) in the bollinger price field for the bollinger study (see snapshot).
The problem is that when you resize the indicator window or chage the scale, the bollinger bands do not move with the MACD (see snapshot also).
I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. If not please contact me.

Being able to display indicator of indicator becomes trivial. It is possible to do it with PowerLanguage, but it is much more easier to do it graphically, especially for people new to MC. When we add an indicator, we should be able to select that it applies not to a data series, but on an indicator. For example, adding BB on an MACD subchart.

Yes I also was surparised that I was not able to place a SMA on a Spread Ratio indicator. I am trying to figure this out with my own custom indicator, but I think MC is missing the boat on this not being there.
