Indicators nesting

If  indicators can be nested, we can create some indicators without coding block, which is relatively simple.



Such as, 
SMA(RSI(close,14),7),


StandardDeviation(EMA(price,12),24)

indicators nesting will be not supported in the foreseeable future. 


It would mean a very big change to the code, it doesn't work on all platforms and I haven't seen any indication that this features produces better strategies.

@Mark Fric - fair enough if the required Dev resources are too high to make this happen. However nested indicators are about giving a large amount of flexibility to users who want to create their own indicator algorithms and who don't have the Java knowledge to program it directly so saying you haven't seen any indication that this produces better strategies doesn't make sense at all. By definition it depends on the ingenuity of the user and what algos they come up with using it.


Look at Hull averages as an example. It uses nested functions and is a very effective indicator. It was eventually added directly by the Dev team but it could have easily been added by any user much earlier if nested indictor functionality was available.

If you have a specific nested indicator idea you can post it and someone will probably code it for free. You can ask in the discord channel too:
