Hello,


could you explain why as I scroll back in the history, value of Bars increases?

From the description I imagine that it would contain all Bars I can go back to.

But when I load my indicator, I can see around 250 bars on my screen, Bars variable is equal to 3000.

I start scrolling back the chart and the moment I reach the bar number 3000, Bars variable increases to 3200, and then further to 3400. 

Hope you understand and could provide me with any explanation why it happens?

  1. The default is to initially download ~2K worth of data from the broker.
  2. There are more to the left. Press minus to compress the screen.
  3. When you reach the left side, it downloads more.
  4. If you don't have any history, here's how you can get all available from the broker.
