Can any one post cutom indicators for multiple (5) moving averages at one time. Like SMA or EMA with different colors, instead adding one moving average at a time. Thanks in advance.

What do you mean "cutom indicators for multiple (5) moving averages at one time"?

An indicator can only be one indicator. Maybe you're just looking for a study that plot several averages that use the same period with one call? That's easy enough -

Hi Cone,
Thank you very much. I will try this one. I meant this to be available in the drag and drop indicators list. So that we can pick the MAs and colors of choice instead just one.

I think I can safely say that picking combinations of multiple indicators in one drag and drop action will never happen (sorry). Not that I'm last word on this, but I don't see any advantage to showing a new dialog with a large list of indicators that you can configure in one complex task - you'd still have to configure parameters, colors, and styles for each indicator anyway.

Why not just drag and drop until you're happy, once, and save the "strategy"? You can then recall it and modify any of the d&d indicators just by double clicking. Or, set up a strategy like this and modifying whenever you like.

Cone,
Thanks a lot for the prompt reply. For sure I see big use for end users. If possible that would be great to have and SMA, EMA and WMA 5 averages each with other parameters like type of line and color etc. or if you can write a code here, then atlease I can use it. :)
Regards,
Sid
