Symbol Sector Comparison to Current Chart

Hi Everyone!

I have a small watchlist consisting about 20 symbols. I'm looking for a way to have a study that will add the underlying sector ETF as a comparison to the currently selected ticker. For example:

My watchlist:
ACGLNARCH CAPITAL GROUP DEP SHS REP 1/1000TH PFD *CLBLFinancials
ABRARBOR REALTY TRUST INC COM USD0.01Financials
ABCMABCAM PLC ADR SPONSOREDHealth Care
AATAMERICAN ASSETS TRUST INC COM USD0.01Real Estate
ABALLIANCEBERNSTEIN HOLDING LP SBIFinancials
ABNBAIRBNB INC COM CL AConsumer Discretionary
ACAARCOSA INC COMIndustrials
AAPLAPPLE INC COMInformation Technology

When I have Apple as my current chart is there a way that the study can check the listed symbols from the above list (already coded as a part of this study) and find the corresponding sector of the current chart symbol (Information Technology for the Apple example) and add the corresponding ETF from the below listed as a comparison overlaying chart:

Cyclicals = "XLY";
Technology = "XLK";
Industrials = "XLI";
Materials = "XLB";
Energy = "XLE";
Staples = "XLP";
HealthCare = "XLV";
Utilities = "XLU";
Financials = "XLF";

Hope I was clear in my expression and thanks so much for any help in advance.

Stockmonkey, could you please share what information that you are looking for from the secondary symbol. For example, do you want to be able to see what the MACD of XLK is doing while you are on a chart of AAPL? Thus, is there a particular indicator that you want to be able to see of a secondary symbol, or are you looking for something else?

this should work , to get you started
Code:
def na = double.nan;
def z;
if GetSymbol() == "AAPL" then {
z= close("XLK")

# copy these 2 lines and replace symbols as needed
} else if GetSymbol() == "ACA" then {
z= close("XLI")

} else {
z = 0;
};

plot z2 = if z>0 then z else na;

Hi JamesB!
Thanks for the reply. I’m looking for what XLK is doing while I am on a chart of AAPL. XLK As an overlay (or compare with study) on the AAPL chart. Similar to that when I am on another symbol like ABCM which is a healthcare sector I’m looking for XLV as the overlay(comparison study) on the ABCM chart. I hope I was able to explain better this time.

#This will chart a symbol in the subgraph if that is what you are after.

# thanks to @mashume for the method
declare lower;
input symbol = "XLK";

def nan = double.nan;
def o = open(symbol = symbol);
def c = close(symbol = symbol);
def h = high(symbol = symbol);
def l = low(symbol = symbol);

AddChart(high = if c > o then h else nan,
low = if c > o then l else nan,
close = if c > o then c else nan,
open = if c > o then o else nan,
ChartType.CANDLE, Color.GREEN);
AddChart(high = if c < o then h else nan,
low = if c < o then l else nan,
open = if c < o then o else nan,
close = if c < o then c else nan,
ChartType.CANDLE, Color.RED);
AddChart(high = if c == o then h else nan,
low = if c == o then l else nan,
open = if c == o then o else nan,
close = if c == o then c else nan,
ChartType.CANDLE, Color.GRAY);
