Calculating Studies only at the last bars

Postby SP » 02 Aug 2010

I need to load for some pattern recognition charts with 40 000 bars back.

I now want that some very cpu consuming ADE indicators only calculate for the last 500 bars. Is there an way to implement this, i havent found an easy way with barnumber ?
