Re: Moving Average for MACD Histogram [SOLVED]

Hello datamonkey,

Please see MultiCharts .NET FAQ post #15:
How to access objects of one study from the another one.

If I have another, un-related issue can I ask you here or would you prefer I start another thread? It's regarding bracket orders not always executing in live trades (even though 'Auto Attach As Exit Strategy' is selected)?
