Compare Forex Exchanges

john_everist Updated   
This indicator allows you to overlay candles of a different exchange over the top of your primary exchange. For example, you might be curious how Oanda's prices compare to FXCM's in realtime.

You can see from the example that generally, the other exchanges swing a little further than FXCM (note this is the 1 minute chart for clarity).

You can use this if you are thinking to change exchanges (or concerned you are being stop hunted etc).

I was just curious to see the difference in real time during new events.

I don't need it anymore - I hope its useful to people

Release Notes:
By over whelming request - well 'CrowZera' asked - I added a manual override so you can write in any exchange you want. The request was specific to crypto so you can compare any of the exchanges (crypto or not). If the exchange does not offer the currency the script crashes.

To get the name of the exchange:

-Load the chart with the exchange you want
-Click of the three dots (...) next to the symbol name at the top left of the chart
-Choose "Symbol Info"
-You'll see the exchange name written as it needs to be there (you don't need ":" - the script adds it)

Good look 'CrowZera' - Crypto looks brutal...
