Subject: Exploration with variables

Hi to all wisers,

How can I explore with a changing parameter. For example:

Run MACD with a 14 days period instead of the hard coded 9 periods without changing manually the number in all the explorer places. I tried to use the input() but for some reason it did not ask me the question that I defined.

Many thanks to all,

Moshe Shalom

The Input() Function(MSK-man. p.271-273) cannot be used directly in the Explorer (MSK-man. p.351). It is reserved to be used in a custom indicator. However, the custom indicator's default value can be used in an exploration.

Since you have created a {faulty} custom indicator, than just re-code it. By referencing the Input() Function using the fml() CALL Function (MSK-man.p.226-227 and 208-209 and 212), you can still use its {by you at design time} assigned Default value.


MAprd:=Input( "Periods", 5 {Minimum}, 30 {Maximum}, 14 {Default} );
YourTrig:=Mov( MACD(), MAprd, E );


When creating the Exploration just click the Function-button and look under the Custom Indicators heading for both of the above custom indicator Functions, and "Open" each of them one by one, to Paste them into your column TABs (MSK-man. p.347-348).
