Power Language Takes so long to load and calculate

After loading the The power language below into multicharts it took forever to calculate and load. I wonder what went wrong. Please help... THanks.



TradeCost (1000),
TradeTimeStart (0900),
TradeTimeEnd (1500),
AccFactorStep( 0.14 ),
AccFactorLimit( 0.2 ),
BreakEvenPct (10),
StopLossPct (10),
dailyloss (3000),
DMIP (14),
ADXlen (14);


TradeOK (false), //Trade
TrdQty (0), // Number of Contracts
StopAmt (0),
ActualCost (0),
EntryPrice (0),
Position (0),
//SetBreakEven (0),
FloorAmt (0),
//SetStopLoss (0),
Value1 (0),
Value3 (0),
todaynet (0),
yesterdaynet (0),

oParCl( 0 ), oParOp( 0 ), oPosition( 0 ), oTransition( 0 ) ;

Value1 = ParabolicSAR( AccFactorStep, AccFactorLimit, oParCl, oParOp, oPosition, oTransition ) ;
Value2 = ADX(ADXlen);
Value3 = DMIPlus (DMIP);

// TrdQty = IntPortion(TradeCost/(100*Close));// Round off the entry contracts.
Position = IntPortion(TradeCost/(100*EntryPrice)); //Actual Position Contracts.
ActualCost = Position * EntryPrice * 100;
StopAmt = ActualCost * StopLossPct/100;

FloorAmt = ActualCost * (BreakEvenPct/100);

{Determine if current time is within valid market session by setting
the TradeOK to TRUE which will allow new position to be opened (traderslaboratory.com)}

if (Time > TradeTimeStart) AND (Time < TradeTimeEnd) then
TradeOK = True;

If date <> date [1] then begin
yesterdaynet = NetProfit;
if MarketPosition = 0 then begin
todaynet = NetProfit - yesterdaynet;
condition1 = -dailyloss < todaynet;

// Buy if SAR -1, DMI >15

If (TradeOK) And (MarketPosition=0) And (oPosition = -1)
And (Value2>15) And (Value3 >20) And (condition1 = True) Then Begin

Buy ( "Buy-SAR" ) Next Bar {TrdQty Contracts} at Market;

// Set Stops.
SetBreakEven (FloorAmt);


// Sell for Profit if SAR = +1

If (MarketPosition=1) And (oPosition = 1) Then Begin

Sell ( "Sell" ) Next Bar at Market;


If (TradeOK = False) And (MarketPosition=1) Then Begin
Sell ( "SellTime" ) Next Bar at Market;

I hope someone will reply please.

Your "EntryPrice" variable is causing a division by zero error Set the initial variable value to something other than "(0)". then maybe add something like:
if entryprice = 0 then EntryPrice = EntryPrice[1];
Honestly, i have no idea what your trying to do with the code but that's the first thing that jumped out at me.
Also, you will get alot more help at Multicharts discussion Forum
hope this helps you, good luck.

I have approximate answers, possible beliefs and different degrees of certainty of different things. But I'm not absolutely sure of anything and there are many things i don't know anything about.

what makes it very hard to help you is the amount of information you provided besides your script.
For example what does "forever" mean - seconds, minutes, hours... eternity? How many days of data did you load on what symbol and timeframe? What were your settings for the bar magnifier? There are so many variables that could explain why code took a while to calculate. With your code not being overly complex I would expect the reason to be somewhere to be found within the points I mentioned.
