You need to ask yourself first, why do you need it to be an indicator. There are cases you'll need one - like NeuroLab etc, but TimeSeries will be enough in most cases. I use TimeSeries only.

What you've described will look something like:

CODE:
TimeSeries ts = StdDev.Series(ATR.Series(bars, 25), 25);

Check out Help > Indicators > "Custom Indicators" chapter. The Indicator Builder tool (Tools menu) comes with 3 example indicators (open source).

@Rep_m
Just a minor correction: should be ATRP
CODE:
TimeSeries ts = StdDev.Series(ATRP.Series(bars, 25), 25);


P.S. Advanced users may be interested in creating full-fledged indicator libraries following this manual:

If we create a custom indicator using the corresponding menu, does it appear in the indicators tab?
