Hello, turbofib,

There is no direct way to get the signal's name from the indicator.
You can try using Global Variables to achieve it:
https://www.multicharts.com/trading-sof ... _Variables
For example, assign the name through the Global Variable in the indicator and then get it in the signal.
Indicator:

Code: Select all

var: b(0);
GVSetString(b, "12345");
Signal:

Code: Select all

var: b(0);
var: s1("");
s1 = GVGetString(b);

print(s1);

Can you please make MC a reserve word to let user get strategy name directly?
I have hundreds of strategies, it would be a very hard work to assign the name one by one.
