    Calling One custom Indicator from a Strategy rather than copying code

    Simple Question :

    How do I Call One custom Indicator from a Strategy rather than copying code.

    Hello maneesh,

    To call an indicator type the indicator name followed by parenthesis with any parameters needed for the indicator followed by a bar index.

    For example to call the SMA for the most recent bar:

    double mySMAValue = SMA(14)[0];

    Below is a public link to the help guide on the SMA.

    Take a look at the SampleMACrossover strategy for an example of this.

        Hello maneesh,

        All indicators, including custom indicators, are called the same way.

        I have only used the SMA an example.

        I could also have used:

        double myValue = MyCustomIndicatorName()[0];

          That allows access to the DataSeries produced by the indicator. What if your custom indicator has several objects, each of which produce discrete values ?

            Hello spottysallrite,

            Similar to how the MACD is called, you would need to specify the public series or property.

            For example to get the Diff plot from the MACD:

            double myDiffValue = MACD(12,26,9).Diff[0];

              Thanks, but that still is using the indicator's dataseries ("Diff.set").

                Same thing. Expose the object as public and access it however you want.
