amibroker, multi timeframe

Specially designed for use in day trading AND to save chart space. This chart will display 3 sets of candlestick bars. One for the time Interval set for your chart- for example 1 Minute. The higher timeframe candlestick bars are created by using gfx Low-level graphics and will display according to the parameters you set- for example 5 and 15 minutes. This code can be very much improved and made faster, but I provide it as it is.
