    Hi ET,

    Do you know if it's possible to have an intraday chart with daily features on it?

    For example, I'm look at 5 min chart but I want the moving average on the daily bars to show on the itnraday 5min chart? And is it possible on IB and how to do it?

    IB (TWS) allows an SMA(1000). For 5-minute candles, that's 5000 minutes. Or 83.333 hours.
    If your chart is RTH, and there's 6.5 hours in a trading day, that's nearly 13 trading days.
