If you know logics of the indicators you can use the protected functions. However it is not achievable in 100% of cases.

I'm sorry, i don't quite understand. You mean i can't use third party add-ons to generate automated buy and sell signals? I tried it on Roy Kelly's but i can't get it in the signal tab. Granted that i will not have access to the third-party codes but at least i could use the indicators for buy and sell signals.

holbrooke,

I guess the problem is that most of the add-on are Indicators, that's why you don't see them in the strategy tab.
So you'd have to create a strategy on your own, which calls the protected functions (i.e. the same functions the indicator is calling). But to do this, you would need the logic of the indicator, which function is called for achieving what etc.. Without knowing that, you are lost.

Best regards,

ABC
