Hi all,

I have developed a binary indicator and I would like to know whether it is possible to set a static symbol so no matter what chart I have open, the indicator references a set symbol (benchmark).

For example:

If I have a chart open for AAPL is it possible to have an indicator that refers to the S&P 500?

If so, what is the formula to set the symbol?

There are a few ways you can accomplish this. You could create a custom indicator using the Security function, which you can then apply to the data array of an indicator. You could also plot an indicator on the desired instrument (i.e. a chart of .SPX) and then drag & drop this indicator into a different chart, and save this as part of the chart and/or template.

The security function can be used with Local or Online data. An online example of an indicator would be as follows:

Code:
X:=Security("Online:.SPX",C);
Mov(X,20,E)

This would provide you with a 20-period exponential moving average value based on the S&P 500 Index.
