Default Excessive Memory Usage in Market Analyzer

I have several Market Analyzer columns that I'm defining which take up an extreme amount of memory and essentially make the Market Analyzer unusable for the functions that I'm trying to perform.

The problem is that I'm specifying different DataSeries 'Type' and 'Value' settings for different columns, but there is apparently no way to limit the number of bars that get loaded on a column-by-column basis.

I know about the setting of '# of bars to look back' in the Market Analyzer Properties, and lowering that from its default value of 100 helps a little, but I would like to be able to do this for each individual column.

For instance, I have a column which is defined for 1440 minute (1 day) bars, and I don't want the Market Analyzer to load 100 days worth of data, when all I need to look at is the last couple of days. But for other columns, I may want to look at more than just a few days. So this problem could easily be solved if the number of bars to load were individually settable by column.

My request is that the Market Analyzer column definitions be changed to use the Properties setting as a default which would be used if a similar, proposed setting of '# of bars to look back' for the individual Column definition is never set.

I'm trying to make sure any requests I make are well explained and relatively simple, so hopefully there might be a chance they could be added to NinjaTrader version 7.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
