"I started a trial a few weeks back before the market went wild. DTN.IQ didn’t miss anything and beat my other provider. I decided to stay with you because of the great service through all the volatility." - Comment from Mike
"If you are serious about your trading I would not rely on IB data for serious daytrading. Took me a while to justify the cost of IQ Feed and in the end, it's just a 2 point stop on ES. Better safe than sorry" - Comment from Public Forum

I want to automate some things in my charts. As it is, it takes a good 15 minutes every morning to setup. I am a long time programmer (and instructor of programmers and have searched the documentation. I find several of the things I am looking for mentioned but not well documented. Specifically:

1) Where is there documentation for all of the constants and variables used in User Custom Studies, functions, etc. For example, where do I grab the high and low from the previous day?

2) Is there any way to automate the creation of a few charts from one? For example, is there VBA support or some other scripting language?

3) I noticed in other postings that you have ancillary products for doing things like importing data. Are these all documented somewhere.

I used the Help menu option to try to email support, but my email bounced back, saying that my email address was not allowed to send to you.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Warren

If you click on Help->Help and then
Studies and Functions -> Summary of Studies

This will give you your list of functions that work within our software. To use your example you would use HIGH(LAG(SERIES,-1)) to get yesterday's high.

We do not have any built in VB ability, you can export via DDE to Excel and do your VB there if you choose.

All of our import add-ons are designed for customers who host local quoteservers, if you would like to explore that route, our sales team would have all the data you would need such as documentation and hardware requirements for the server.

The email link was broken in a previous version of the client, an upgrade will address that for you.

Let me know if you have questions,

Tim W

Thanks for the info so far.

Now we are getting to the important part.

Where are the elements documented, such as HIGH, LAG and SERIES?

Thanks,

Warren

Is this a "one shot" forum? Do I need to create a new posting for each question?

I am looking for a comprehensive reference of the symbols and functions that can be used to create User Custom studies and similar constructs.

Is one available?

Hello,

My apologies for not coming back to this sooner. If you go to the page I explained earlier;
If you click on Help->Help and then
Studies and Functions -> Summary of Studies

That page contains the list of all of the functions that are available for charting, if you would like more documentation on lag, click on lag and it will expand to explain the parameters and give an example of how the function should be used.

Series is an enviromental variable that is described in the first few paragraphs of text.

OK. How about an example. Say I want to create a line on my chart at the level of the previous day's close. How would I do this?

Thanks
