Working with the EUR/USD on a 5 min time frame and printing CloseD on a strategy for some reference points. The print only goes back 2 decimal points but the price on the chart goes back 5 decimal points. This is throwing some calculations out the window. Is there a way to force the decimal point when calculating functions like CloseD or CloseW?

Thanks in advance!

Hi LetmeInNow,

are you printing to a text file, debug window or text to the chart? Then your solution probably is as simple as
changing your code to:


Where: C - minimum number of characters 
             E - number of decimal places 

So for example


would print the close for EUR/USD with five decimals like 1.34567
Hope this helps,
