You probably use CurrentBar to get the barnumber. Try to use Symbol_CurrentBar. This will include the maxbarsback.

Re: MULTICHARTS 9.0 RELEASE

Updated to MC9 release and my strategy is not working anymore. When turning the signal on it will give a pop-up with the error message "Error in study: invalid position".

Because the strategy worked in 8.8, I can not figure out what this error message is telling me. Can anyone help me?

Re: DOM: New exit orders management in the next version

Janus, I agree with your suggestions. Although maybe a lot of work to program for the MC team, but I think a system should be as flexible as possible. So it can adapt to the users needs as much as possible.

Pretty cool add-on by the way.
