MultiChart/TS-How to display entry signals from 1 min bars on 15 min bar charts?

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by 1daytrader, Apr 27, 2009.

  1. Hi, I'm new to automated trading. I've written a simple strategy in MultiChart based on 1 min bars. MultiChart(a clone of tradestation), will display the buy/sell signal on to the chart.

    The problem is that I want to look at 15min bars while trading and monitoring, but in order for the strategy to trigger, I need to put it on a 1 min chart. Therefore for every symbol I'm monitoring, I need to open 2 charts. This takes up a lot of screen real estate.

    Does anyone know how to display the signal generated from the 1 min bar chart on the 15 min chart? Or is there a way in writing the code to specify to use 1 min bars for signals?

    Thank you!

    To save space you can put a 1 minute chart onto a 15 minute chart and make 1 minute bars invisible (or paint them the same colour as your background). Then 1 minute signals will be visible on a 15 minute chart.
