in the Setting Studies Properties i am not clear about Setting Max Number of Bars Study Will Reference.

I have charts for period of one year, but my studies are only a half year in the window (auto detect).

I dont understand what is user specified? What means the value? If I use higher values I get a shorter timeperiod and 1 or 10 I get this half year.

Edit: Should be the answer for the shorter period of studies. One Pricechart is only a half year long!

The studies need a specific number of bars of data to perform its calculations - maximum number of bars study will reference. This number must be set before the study is apllied. The number of bars study will reference can be detected automatically as well as set manually.
