Hello guys,

  As I was studying the code for MACD, I came across the iMA functions which the manual says return the MA handle, however as I google search MA handle it appears there is no such thing... Can anyone illuminate me what exactly is an MA handle, and hence what exactly does iMA do...?

  I know my questions could sound a bit newbie, I am! I would really appreciate any help you guys can provide... Thank you in advance!

Best regards,

Bosco

Sorry no time to detail, read a little and ask again if it's not clear.

hi angevoyageur,

  i am really sorry to sound newbie... so after reading your note, i assume the handle thing exist because it is faster to calculate OnInit then copy it later OnCalculate, rather than to do the whole calculation in the OnCalculate part?

  is this understanding correct?
