Post From: --AUTO-TRADING-- How do I incorporate a second spreadsheet signa

Well, thanks for that link and I did try working with what was mentioned but I think I'm either missing something or what I need can't be done with SC. Hopefully its me.

Currently my problem is that I have a spreadsheet set up to autotrade off of an indicator that various bars on a 30 minute chart trigger. What I want to try to do is keep the trade signal on those 30 minute bars, but I don't want the auto-trade system to place the trade on the very first second right when those bars open. So instead what I would like to accomplish would be to keep that signal from the 30 minute but I want to use a second chart with a 5 minute timeframe that, with this signal/alert from the 30 minute, places the trade also off of a signal generated from an indicator.

So basically what I need is for the trades to be placed only after both signals have been generated from the indicators on two different timeframes.

When I tried working with the overlay I wasn't able to put an indicator, thus create the alert, on the overlayed chart.
Is this possible to do and if so, what steps do I need to take? Or, is there a different/better way to do this other than using overlays?
