Communicate Between Scripts

Hi,

Does anyone know a coding example of how I could have a script (Ninja) reference another script to check for a True / False condition ? I want to have one script controller the order / stops, but reference the main script for a True / False entry / Exit rule every bar.

Also would that setup backtest ok ?


thx
Steve

It's not very clear, depends what "script" means to you.
Do you want:
#1 a strategy getting signals from another strategy ?
or
#2 a strategy getting signal from an indicator ?

Yeah, one strategy getting a signal (True / False) from another strategy.

To elabortate,

2 Scripts, one that creates the signal (Script A) and the other that takes control once the signal is generated (Script B)

So script A generates a signal say it makes Variable1 = 1. Script be sees that and then enters a long position.

You can check the links included in this post, not very tricky for pseudo-realtime.
For asynchronous communication, using simple file is maybe easier.

If you are only dealing with True/False conditions you could set a BoolSeries in one strategy/indicator and expose it, then read it from strategy two, right?

Thanks for the replies, I'll check out that thread link. I was hoping it was going to be as easy as using multiple time frames from one strategy to another.

Your idea sounds good eDanny, just need to work out how to impliment it.

thx
