 i can't get anything related to another timeframe plot correctly in my time frame i am using. Lets say i am in the 1 min chart and want to plot data from the 5 min, i want 5 min upbars plot as up arrow in 1min chat and

5min < 30 RSI, plot as down arrow in my 1 min chart, here is my code (not doing what it should):

#property version   "1.0"
#property strict
#property copyright "me"
#property description "demo timeframe"
#property indicator_chart_window
#property indicator_buffers 2
#property indicator_color1 Red   
#property indicator_color2 Lime 

// Buffers
double UP[];
double DN[];


double RSI[];
datetime Crono;
string Color;
extern bool SoundAlert=False;

int init()

  {



   IndicatorBuffers(2);
   SetIndexStyle(0,DRAW_ARROW,NULL,0);
   SetIndexArrow(0,234); // UP arrow
   SetIndexBuffer(0,UP);
   SetIndexEmptyValue(0,0.0);
   SetIndexStyle(1,DRAW_ARROW,NULL,0);
   SetIndexArrow(1,233); //DN Arrow
   SetIndexBuffer(1,DN);
   SetIndexEmptyValue(1,0.0);

   return(INIT_SUCCEEDED);

  }


int start()

  {



   int    limit;
   int counted_bars=IndicatorCounted();

   ArrayResize(RSI,Bars);

   if(counted_bars>0) counted_bars--;

   limit=Bars-counted_bars;

   int lookback=100;



   for(int i=Bars-1-MathMax(lookback,counted_bars); i>=1; --i) 

     {

      RSI[i]= iRSI(NULL,5,6,PRICE_CLOSE,i);

      if(Crono<Time[0])
        {
         SoundAlert=True;
         Crono=Time[0];
        }


      if(iUpBar(i)== True)
        {
         DN[i]=Low[i]-17*Point;
         if(SoundAlert==True && i<3)
           {

            Alert(Symbol()," Go Long ",Period());
            SoundAlert=False;
            Crono=TimeCurrent();
           }

        }

      else{DN[i]=0.0;}


      if(RSI[i] < 30)
        {
         UP[i]=High[i]+17*Point;
         if(SoundAlert==True && i<3)
           {
            Alert(Symbol()," Go Short ",Period()); //PlaySound("alert2.wav")
            SoundAlert=False;
            Crono=TimeCurrent();
           }

        }
      else{UP[i]=0.0;}
     }


   return(0);

  }



bool iDownBar(int bar)

  {
   return (iClose(NULL,PERIOD_M5,bar)<iOpen(NULL,PERIOD_M5,bar));
  }


bool iUpBar(int bar)
  {
   return (iClose(NULL,PERIOD_M5,bar)>iOpen(NULL,PERIOD_M5,bar));
  }

 

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!!

  1. Don't paste code
    Play video
    Please edit your post.
    For large amounts of code, attach it.

  2. RSI[i]= iRSI(NULL,5,6,PRICE_CLOSE,i);
    You are mixing apples and oranges

Thanks for your answer 

1.- Got it and edited 

2.- Why?  RSI[] is just an array,  It is supposed to keep the values of the M5 charts

    if(RSI[i] < 30){
         UP[i]=High[i]+17*Point;
The RSI[i] controls UP[i] on the current chart. If i is 2 (2 minutes ago) why would you care about the RSI 10 minutes ago (2 on the M5?) If i is 6 why would you care about the RSI 30 minutes ago?

It's just an example, i am trying to develop an strategy based on longest time frames, but the question is not why is how?,  if the condition is true on the M5, and i  is 2 and 2 is placed on 8:00 hrs  i should have 5 down arrows on the M1 chart, from 8:00 to 8:04, but it plot me nonsense.

Or lets say on the M5 i have an UpBar on the last closed bar or on the last bar developing, i can plot M1 price action long with up arrow for each corresponding M1 bar with the Up Bar on M5

How?
