I would like to build a strategy in MultiCharts that uses a MACD 2 minute crossover for an entry and a MACD 1 min crossover for an exit. Is there a way to reference MACD in two different time intervals in EasyLanguage / PowerLanguage?

you can build it with multiple macd in the same chart and same strategy.
use multi-data series.

Here's the solution:

Fast = MACD(Close Data2, 12, 26) Data2;
Slow = XAverage(Fast, 9) Data2;
