    How to retrieve the instrument description

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a way to get the Instrument description out the Instrument object.

    I found the Instrument.FullName but that just gives the ticker but not the description.

    If I look in the Market analyzer and add the column description I get a full description of the instrument on that column.

    Is it possible to retrieve the description of an instrument inside a indicator/strategy just like the MarketAnalyzer-Description column is able to retrieve the instrument description?

    Many thanks in advance.
