Intellisense

Thanks Sam028 - I get what you mean. Ididn't realise that was intellisense
Re putting an output that you could access from the indicator - I have had more than one discussion with the developer and basically I think it's because the 'signals' require some interpretation and support from higher time frames, etc so of course it won't work "automatically".

So my solution is to pay someone to hack it for me - well that can't be good can it really?

I find it annoying to say the least.

Sorry Mike you would have to explain that a little more. How would a wizard / intellisens expose a dataseries - that's a new one to me?

On the other note (testing,etc ) I totally agree with you ( hence I had better not name it now for libellous reasons). However it produces a no of signals some of which I would find useful.

I think Sam answered already

And, it's not libel if it's true and based on your experiences, so share if you want, or not, up to you.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Well, it's his product. He can do what he wants. Not listening to customers requests is one way to go. But, just in the general sense of things, I would say automation is not the way to go in trading.

If the code is obfuscated, paying someone to hack it is not going to be fruitful. If the wizard didn't pick up any useful dataseries being outputted by the indicator, then I would just let the developer know you don't find the product as useful as it could be, and stop paying for it, etc, and move on.

In general, when I've seen this before, it is because the developer doesn't want you to automate it. Why don't they want you to automate it? Possible reasons that come to mind: 1) it won't work, 2) they already have automated it and want to sell you that more expensive product. Of course 3) [both] is an option too
