    there's two things i'm trying to do in realtick. i've gone to their forums, but there isn't a lot of activity on there, and hope someone here can help.

    first - i wanted to do an (offset?) moving average to predict where a moving average will be in the future. for example: if the price doesn't move in the next few periods,the (for example: 20 period) moving average WILL change because the 20th, 19th, 18th bars (etc.) will drop off and be replaced by the new bars.

    the way i was told to do it - make a 20 period moving average under display/analysis, then click on the lead/lag button, and whatever i put in there will show the moving average. only problem? it waits until the prices are finalized before completing. so if i want it to do 3 periods off on the 15 minute moving average, during the day, it will be 45 minutes behind. any ideas on how i can put "current price, next 3 periods" in there? (btw, the offset option in there changes the *price*).

    the second question - i'm trying to create some heikin-ashi candlesticks. i emailed RT about them, and they pointed me to this page:

    only problem; i see no way to create your own candlestick parameters in the videos.

    am i blind with this stuff? if anyone knows the info - or even a pointer in the right direction - it'd be greatly appreciated.
