I want to add the default (built in) indicator Ichimoku Cloud to a Chart, but it always throws the MaxBars Exception. Even though I increased the MaxBars Back setting for this "Analysis Technique" as you can see in the attached Screenshot and decreased the inputs - I always get the same issue

I'm using Tradestation 9.1

Does anybody know something about this issue or am I missing out on something ?

Thanks !

as this indicator shifts some plots to the right of the most recent bar, you will need to make sure to allow enough maximum bars to the right. This is not to be confused with the max bars back setting and can be set on the "General" tab of the "Format Window" (you get there via Format -> Window). Make sure to set the "Space to the Right" to the amount of bars that your indicator requires. If for example the code shifts a plot 20 bars to the right, the "Space to the Right" setting should at least be 20 bars.
