Hi all,

I'm trying to get this script below to work in MC.net.

Issue I have is when I compile it, it appears to compile fine (no errors), but the strategy doesnt "complete" - ie. I am left with a red esclamation mark.

Any ideas? I've altered names, new strategy, indicator you name it. Same issue!

Unfortunatly the guys over at MC.net forum seem to be long gone!

Cheers
Ben
