In that indicator there are 3 step ma values
Which 2 should be used for "trend" determination? The reason for asking this is explained at this post : https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/181187/page3
the 2 with thick lines coloured pink and deepskyblue
Your dealing with higher tf's which bars have not closed... once the higher tf's have closed there will be no so called "repaint"... One thing I do is use this indi to keep track of the highest tf's close because it is easy for me to forget when an H4 bar will close as an example... so i set this indi to 240min. Maybe this will help you.
am talking of closed bars not open bars
Here is a simple example that is showing which bars of a current (15 minute chart) are belonging to a current (still opened) 4 hour time frame bar. Each bar belonging to target (4 hour time frame in this case - the upper row in the 4 time frame ma indicator - bars to the right of the vertical line) are a subject of change since that 4 hour bar is still opened
wow, seems am looking for something diiferent.
my idea of a 4tf indicator is one that displays what happens on other tf charts on the current chart
E.g see pix.
when the ma cross up on the m15, you get one up arrow or bar on the m15 line
when the ma cross down on the m30, you get one down arrow or bar on the m30 line
same for h1 and h4 such that when all the time frames shows arrows/bar pointing in same direction then you know the overall trend.
instead of flipping from chart to chart to spot the crossing, it can be seen on 1chart just like the mini chart showing 3 diiferent small charts on the main chart.
i dont expect the open bar/candle on the current tf to affect or cause a repaint on the other tf
can you make me such a 4tf indicator

As far as I remember there is a "All MA" (not iorads all averages, but a one that shows averages from all time frames) there too, and that would be what you are looking for
thanks a million but here is what i would want the indicator to look like(see pix) so that i dont start to guess whether it has crossed or not as i may not see it cross well or something.
i would like it to give an alert when a specified number of arrows appear in same direction
Could you code haDelta indicator to 4TF bars.
4 time frame haDelta ...
Have a pleasant weekend
PS: upgraded indicator compatible with the new metatrader 4 posted here : https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/181187
