I dont think that multidata does apply here since he just wants to use one data stream and that is M1 so using CloseD(x) to rewrite the indicator is the best way to go.
On my example above the data2 stream was just to compare that the CloseD(x) Plot1 was working right.

using only 1 core during portfoliobacktest

During optimizing in the Portfoliobacktester it often just uses only 1 core instead of all 4.
I didn’t change the priority or anything else on the task manager. It seem like that it sometimes uses 4 and sometimes just 1 – nothing in between that.
Is this a known bug/feature?
