ESB has 33 Indicators slots which sometimes is not enough for some plans. There are many ways to reduce the number of used indicators. We mention some here:
- Use functions rather than indicators: for instance to get order properties there are some functions and also indicators
- Use same indicator with different shifts: For example define IND1 with shift 0, Then in expressions you can use:
Ind1 for shift 1
Ind1 for shift 2
Ind1 for shift 3
- Choose indicators without sub type: It means you have all types of that specific indicator
For example ESB has these indicators for MA:
[osc] Moving Average
[osc] Moving Average Simple
[osc] Moving Average exponential
If you choose the first one, ESB will add all kind of moving Average. Check indicators panel to see them.
- Use range shift: Shift can be in format of “start,step,end,operand” which is very helpful to reduce indicators usage.
for example “1,10,max” means maximum from shift 1 to 10 which means you don’t need to define 10 separate indicators. define one indicator and set shift on 1,10,max means ESB calculate this for 10 candles and find the maximum.
