Default Using offset

I have declared an input in the Wizard called Bbuff to be used as an offset. The default minimum is -0.0015 (EURUSD). I don't seem to be able to set a negative value for this either in the input declarations section of the Wizard or in the parameters section when setting up a condition.

Example: LinReg crosses under LinReg -Bbuff where Bbuff is currently set as -0.0001.

How do I set a negative offset?

In the User Defined Inputs page, select type double. Then in the Min. row just type in a negative value. It will allow you to have a minimum of whatever you want.

It may display as 0.00, but if you press the View Code button and expand the Properties region of the code you will find this:
public double MyInput0
    get { return myInput0; }
    set { myInput0 = Math.Max(-0.0001, value); }
confirming that the minimum you have specified does indeed work.

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.
