How do I use consolidators with this kind of indicator?


I'm trying to make ADX indicator to run with my custom H4 bars, I've checked the documentation here, but haven't found how to do this, I've done it previously with other indicators but ADX is different, so I get: "this is a forward-only indicator" error when trying to use RegisterIndicator.

I would appreciate some guidance, thanks.

The indicator should have been initialized using the following line:

ADX = new AverageDirectionalIndex(Crypto.Symbol, 20);

Because the indicator was not initialized correctly, it was not populating correctly. The documentation on consolidating data shows how the object should have been created. RegisterIndicator was used in the proper way so that was not the cause of the forward-only indicator error. The algorithm below is a working version of the one above:


Thank you, Sawhney,

Question, when should I use ADX() method? I thought it was the same.

Thank you.
