Hi,

I would like to create an indicator which shows me the cumulative volume of the current month and the second month of the future contracts.

Any clues on how i can add the second month volume to the current month ?

Thanks

Hello, 

The Security Data function can call a data array for a particular instrument. A simple example would be:

Code:
Cum(Security("Online:ESM9",V) + Security("Online:ESU9",V))

Does one have to change the Symbol manually everytime one checks new symbol ?

Hello,

With local data, you will need to use the Security function including the data path. If you have the latest MetaStock version, the Help file's "Security" function topic contain the details and examples.

In the case of open interest, assuming the open interest data is in an Open Interest column, you would use OI as the data field to call in the Security function. A simple online example is:

Code:
Security("Online:Cc1",OI)

Hello again,

It sounds like this is really more a case of getting MetaStock to read your data, because until that can be done, forming indicators is of secondary concern.

What file format are your data files stored in? The security function will not work with CSV/TXT so the data must be in a MetaStock formatted data file. If you have CSV/TXT data you can use the DownLoader to Convert this data to the MSLocal (or Legacy) format, which can then be used in the Security function.

The data must be formatted correctly, however in order to be successfully converted.
