In several studies of MultiCharts,
There is the following condition: Currentbar > number (1, 2, 3 in most of the cases)
Here is an example in the RSI LE
condition1 = Currentbar > 1 and var0 crosses over OverSold ;
There is no such condition in a lot of other signals...
So I do not understand the point to add a such condition. It works with and without the condition with a short period (1). I'm sure i'm missing something...
So why add a such condition? Is it really interesting? If yes? How to know the number of bar to specify
In NinjaTrader you have to check the CurrentBar count if you are looking at a indexed DataSeries value, because it will throw an exception if you make a request for an index that doesn't exist yet.
In MultiCharts as far as I know, it will not throw an exception under the same conditions, so my best guess would be just so that the first plot is 'accurate', or possibly to avoid a division by zero issue which will cause an exception in MultiCharts.
