I am new to EasyLanguage and am hoping one of you can give me an example of how to buy two instruments at the same time in a strategy. For instance, I want to buy 'data1' and 'data2' (say ES and NQ) at the same time, what is the syntax to do this?

You cannot do that in EL. Trade commands are only for the main data stream (data1) on your chart to which the strategy is applied.

Thanks guy. For my sake, I hope you are wrong I am posting on MC forum just to see if there is a different view.

TS SUPPORT :: View topic - Buy data1 and data2 in strategy

If not, I am guessing a global variable would be required and have one strategy per instrument running on different charts (different data1's).

Ok you weren't wrong. Sorry for doubting you and wanting a second opinion, I just thought "surely" it was possible.

Well that's a bummer.
