Accessing IntSeries and BoolSeries via Market Analyzer and Strategy Builder
Not sure whether this has been mention before:
Currently strategy builder and market analyzer can only access plots containing DataSeries objects.
When using trendfilters, you would typically make them accessible via a BoolSeries (trend up or down) or an IntSeries (uptrend = +1, neutral trend = 0, downtrend = -1). I have coded a number of indicators that have those BoolSeries and IntSeries exposed in a way that they can be accessed by a manually coded strategy.
However, IntSeries and BoolSeries cannot be accessed by the strategy builder and the market analyzer. I therefore often had requests to convert the IntSeries and BoolSeries into a transparent plot in order to allow accessing the trend information.
It would be better to allow direct access of BoolSeries and IntSeries via the Market Analyzer and Strategy Builder.

Thanks: 216 given,
Download for Replay additional functionality
please consider allowing a date range, instead of just a single date
please also allow for a checklist, that populates or continues as a super function (the actual download being the function); that allows for, say check boxes on the Instrument List (default) for contracts selected, to be downloaded with the specified date ranges...
and another better idea than the first....
cheers to an excellent trading platform, that accomplishes just so many tasks that's its amazing!
1. Display exact dates (when hovered over, for example) on daily net profit bars
2. Fix efficiency graphs bug where the values can be over +- 100%. Just fix it, don't ask users to debug it for you, NT!
3. Explain somewhere what MFE, MAE graphs mean and how to use them. What patters should one look for/avoid, etc.
4. Monthly/weekly net profit - display exact date ranges on the bars (on hover?)
Attached is a better screenshot I found for TradeStation. By listing the intervals vertically,
I would be able to group the instruments as seen in the screenshot and I can see at a glance
if certain criteria are met on each time frame. In this example ADX "peak" values
With NT, I have to create a separate column for each time frame (horizontally) and
that means creating 7 columns (one column for each time frame) which doesn't
leave much room for anything else. By "grouping" the instruments by interval, it leaves
room for add columns for other things like values for RSI, OB/OS values of another
indicator, ATR or moving average, etc..
