HMA indicator Of the monthly interval

Hello Folks,


I'm new to MQL5 , I have been trying to code the HMA of the monthly timeframe but no success, I coded it to be calculated on the current timeframe then changed the interval to PERIOD_MN1 but no success

here's my code, I'd really appreciate it if someone told me what I could be doing wrong I've been stuck on it forever

You need to use "iBarShift" to align the bar time of the current chart with the bar time of the monthly chart.

In this case, "ArraySetAsSeries" must be set to "true" for this to work.
