Indicator Description

My tiny contribution to this great project:
This is a tool to compare FST and FSB results. If you have some FST real data and want to compare it to predicted FSB numbers, than ideally you want to start running a trade in FSB at same time you did so in FST. This filter lets you do just that. Since I am not a programmer, I am just a newbie, a more experienced coder might be able to improve on the code or ! ;). Any criticism or suggestions are welcome of course.
I like to give a Big Thanks to great guys like Papov, Krog and Footon they have pointed me in the right directions when I needed their help and I am sure that in future they will do it again.
Please give feedback if you like it or not. Enjoy ...

Comments

just a note, if it appears too look "funky" it's likly that you have a setup with multiple logic groups. in that case make sure you set the filter to "All" :)
ps thanks for the rating whoever didit =)
