High/Low on a overlayed chart

Hi there,

I overlayed a chart to the main graph. The overlayed is a tick chart which had a high/low study to capture the high and low of a period and it will draw a horizonatal line through it.

I have also added a spreadsheet study for trading on this main chart. The problem is the high/low is returned on the scale of the main graph and not the tick chart. Is there anyway around this?
I want to do something like if tick> high tick of the day then...do this.
But I found that it fails because the high tick is recorded on the main chart's scale?

Cheers

you have to reference the overlay, not the main price graph.. you should be able to find it by scrolling right on the spreadsheet

You need to base the High/Low for Time Period study on the Overlay study that you are using:
