@TJ, i mean plot, not draw. I asked MC if i can DRAW about 1.000.000 Objects, i think you know the answere :-). 1.000.000 are exact 5 informations (drawings) per Bar if you have 200.000 Bars in a chart.

The public variables should be shared only in the chart between all "scripts". And not between all charts in MC. The current global variables are only available if you use a dll extension, e.g. pushpop.dll. But i can´t use them at the same bar, not for live trading, i don´t trust them, because MC do...

I think with global variables and an ordered processing of signals and scipts, multicharts would do an great step !

Take a look at the forum on how many people ask for global variables to share informations and to syncronize scripts.

Hi,

yes it is possible.

Add two symbols to your chart: 5min and 30min resolution
Place your study on the 5min Symbol.

You can access quotes and functions from both symbols, using "of data1"

if the 30min symbol is your data2 symbol, then you can access the close:

the advantage of the puspop.dll is, that you can access historical values by datetime. i always pass the datetime of the current bar.
