Example
EL for 10 day RSI and moving average using closing prices:-

Plot1(RSI(close, 10));
Plot2(Average(close, 10));

Save and plot as one indicator in TS.

No you can not do that.

It is not going to work well with the auto trendline. I can build something for you that will show the technique and also be a useful trading tool for you to have.

Actually you can do this, at least with some indicators (the ones that have price as a parameter). For example to show the average of RSI, put a moving average on the chart, and edit the price input from 'close' to RSI(close,10) for example. Note that we are actually using the name of a function here, rather than the indicator. Most, but not all, indicators have a function associated.

Yes, that is most certainly true. I overlooked this by thinking you were wanting to apply two indicators and have them interact without coding, and I do this sort of thing shown here often :)

cool...thansk for your answers! that helps a lot!)) i was just hoping that you could simply drop one indicator over another without doing any tweaks manually..
I also hope ts will allow to access EL editor directly from the format strategies and techniques window!

You can certainly add multiple indicators to the same chart and they will overlay if they scale correctly. I am not sure what you are talking about when you mention accessing EL editor from the format analysis techniques window as this is certainly what you can do with the newest version of TS.

Indicators in strategy?

This is currently a feature of TS 8.3

You will see a button within the dialog window of the format strategies and indicators where you can then open the EL code window immediately
Hi,
Can a third party indicator be referenced in an easylanguage strategy? I have the indicator in use on tradestation but I really would like to automate it in a strategy. Can I possibly reference the indicator in a strategy like ......if apollo >price buy at close ....where apollo is the custom indicator? If not directly possible is there a way round this problem? As in can one make a function based on that third party indicator and use the function in a strategy? etc.
Thank you.
