Hey Send, have loaded your indicator and am getting errors on most pairs - "Error in GetTrend : (4220) symbol select error (USDCHF) - This is an example of error - same for nearly all currency pairs.

I do have a broker with a suffix of "+" on the ECN accounts.

This may be the issue. Can you adjust code to allow for Prefix Suffix on trading platform.

I think this could be quite powerful if you could fix it.

The screen renders as per the attached image.


Thanks. Dean.

Thanks for the feedback/suggestion.

And a bigger THANKS for helping me test the updated version.  I have just updated the codebase accordingly.


To everybody else reading this, if you happen to have a broker that prefix/infix/postfix weird characters/strings to symbol names (e.g. even as ridiculous as xxEur_uSdyy, lol), here's good news - they are supported now. But if you see any error, feel free to let me know. Thanks!
