Invert chart in Thinkorwim?

Hi thinkscript family,

I am trying to invert a stock chart. I already know that you can simply put a - infront of the symbol to invert it. However, if I connect two charts together I want one chart to show the regular symbol and one chart to show the inverted chart.

Example: chart 1 is connected with chart 2. Chart 1 shows AAPL and chart 2 should show -AAPL automatically without me typing it in.

Is there a way to achieve that with thinkscript?

Thank you!

On the second chart, simply change the color/number (just to the right of the ticker window-- links all charts of same color/number), but write the same ticker. That should give you two views of the same ticker (one normal, the other "-"). Give it a try.
i think you left out something, if you write the same symbol in another chart, you will get the same chart.

reread post3, he didn't want to type in a symbol.
......

to make a study to invert a price chart , you could,
turn off the primary candles,
multiply price data by -1, (ohlc)
draw new candles with addchart,
and have a price chart below the 0 line.
..
if you wanted the chart to occupy the same original price range, then,
find the highest and lowest prices on the chart...

find the price range,
calculate a vertical offset to shift the negative chart to a desired location.

this will draw an inverted line chart

Gotcha. I may have misunderstood about the 2nd chart doing it "automatically", right. It doesn't seem like that big of a task to type it in on the second chart, but I guess there's more to what s/he's trying to accomplish.
