Say you are viewing an hourly chart but you also want to know the ema20 sourced from a higher timeframe (i.e daily) of the same security. The problem with using most built-in indicators is that the MA values are usually calculated from the current chart, so to do that, you will have to toggle between 1h/1D. This script will eliminate this hassle by plotting out the desired alternative timeframe on the same chart.
By default the alternative timeframe is 1D, but this can be customized further:
- 1 week chart -> plots out 1 month MA
- 1 day chart -> plots out 1 week MA
- 1 hour chart -> plots out 1 day MA
