Reading the "Trade Size" property from Easy Language ...

Postby furytrader » 28 Apr 2011

In TS and MultiCharts, it's possible to set a fixed trading size for a strategy by going into the Strategy Properties dialog box and setting the following: "Trade size (if not specified by signal) - fixed shares / contracts or dollars per trade" -- I've attached a screen shot of this window.

Does anyone know of a way to read the value of this property setting from within Easy Language? I searched online but couldn't find anything. In other words, if the fixed trade size is set to 5 contracts, is there some way to retrieve that value from within Easy Language?

I'm looking to do this for messaging purposes. Thanks!

You can't read it from the Settings, another way would be to simply specify the trade size in your code.
