                                                   Coding Question Applying an Indicator to an Indicator

I'm having some issues with getting the code right with creating an custom indicator that can be charted and used in a screener that applies an indicator to another indicator.
Specifically, I'm trying to apply a 14-day RSI to the VIX FIX indicator of a security and then take a 25-day standard deviation of the RSI and find the resulting 25-day z-score of the standard deviation, adding it to the 252-day z-score.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

The above is not an indicator. It is a composite. Please refer to our documentation for more info about composites.

Try using the following indicator instead: Z-Score (Standard Score)

One more question... If it's a composite then can it be applied to different tickers?

I'm trying to create an indicator that uses Williams Vix Fix ( and then applying RSI to that and then summing the z-scores of two look back periods of that standard deviation of the RSI. The end product would then be able to be used on any ticker symbol.

A composite is a time-series that is created using several other tickers data. An index is an example of a composite.

Thanks for the clarification. I'm still having trouble getting this setup as I'm not as code-savvy as I wish I was. Is there anyway help to discuss this off the forum and get some help with coding the specifics of what I'm trying to get accomplished? Once I know this is up and going I'll be ready to end my trial subscription early and setup a full paid license. I appreciate any help you can offer or if you can point me to someone who can that would be great.

Thanks again.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
