Hello,

Is there an easy way to configure custom MT5 indicators so they can be applied on top of other indicators? (same as standards MT5 indicators using apply to " previous indicator's data" or "first indicator data" )?

It is possible in some cases but I am sorry - in most of the cases - it should be programmed/coded especially for that (by coder). Because scales for some indicators are different ones (vertical scales).

When writing an indicator that uses the short form of the OnCalculate() function call, you might miss the fact that an indicator can be calculated not only by price data, but also by data of some other indicator (no matter whether it is a built-in or custom one). Do you want to improve an indicator for its correct application to the other indicator's data? In this article we'll review all the steps required for such modification.
