I cannot find a MTF indicator that works in tester .    i.e.  run 1 min chart and plot 5min MTF indicator........

Are there any examples to follow?


I saw an iunima_mtf.mq5  but it uses stuff not in MT4 compiler.

BarsCalculated

CopyBuffer


I was thinking that  embedded indicator in a MTF version may not work anymore, i tried but failed.

i.e.

UpBuffer[i]  = iCustom(NULL,TimeFrame,"Envelopes_v5",MA_Period,MA_Met

etc.


Then i looked at something that calls an MT4 function, see below, but that does not work either.......
