I'm supposing to make a separate chart window MTF multi-meter using iMA.

Actually, its a rather big one using 6 moving averages and depicting crosses which are 3 per time-frame & 27 in total.

I've constructed a current period prototype that counts to 0 .. how to make multi-time frame ?

Have a look what a current period looks like., slow down to fast, crosses on iMA open prices.


The only way i can come up with is to log bars per time-frame, if that makes any sense.

yes well it is possible, i just didn't have the code in front of me..just verify a time-frame time-array by a bar count(iChart).

ArrayCopySeries(TimeArray,MODE_TIME,Symbol(),Timeframe);
while(Time[iChart]<TimeArray[iTF]){iTF++;}

sorry for the confusion, but i was trying to find a better solution for displaying multiple time-frames of a single indicator. its a work in progress.

Since your indicator is based on Moving Averages, consider simplifying it by merely adjusting the Period instead of having true Multi-time-frame.

Example if you need a MA(28) on a H1 Chart, you can approximate the results on a H4 chart or a M15 chart as follows: MA(H1,28) = MA(H4,7) = MA(M15,112).

It is not a "pic", it is Maths!

Example: A Moving Average with a Period of 28 on the H1 time-frame is equivalent to a Moving Average with a period of 112 on the M15 Time-frame. This is because H1 (60 mins) = 4 x M15 (15 mins), therefore the equivalent period is 4 x 28 = 112.
