multi-time frame code and entry code
I'm using a mult-time frame strategy. I've referred to the help guide, but still have questions in two areas:
1. Is it best to use the barsinprogress ==0 for multi-time frame instead of barsinprogress !=0?
1a.If using ==0 format and you want to check the 1 minute chart as well as other time frames, should you be including in your time frame code:
// Add a 1 minute Bars object to the strategy
or is the 1 min. time frame automatically assumed under the ==0 format?
2. Where do you place an enterlong() code on a multi-time frame strategy? I want an entry to occur only when the strategy conditions exist on all timeframes simultaneously.
Should the enterlong() code occur only once at the end of the code after all if statements have been written, or should it occur after each and every timeframe's if statement?

1. Depends what you want to do. If you want to process OnBarUpdates for the primary series then you need to filter using == 0.
1a. If your primary series is NOT 1 min, then yes, you must add it. If its the primary then it will have an index of 0 --> Refer back to answer #1
2. Only once
