A Note About AIQ's Built-In Versus Custom Indicators
The AIQ built-in indicators are all the indicators that can be referenced by using square brackets [ ] in Expert Design Studio (EDS). Many of these are indicators with changeable parameters. The problem with AIQ's approach in EDS to these built-in indicators is that the parameters have to be set in the chart module. This means that you can not have two copies of the same indicator with different parameter values in the same EDS file if you use the built-in ones. Also if you use the built-in indicators, you can not use the same indicator in two different EDS scans with different parameters unless you go to the charts and change the parameter. If you build multiple systems that use different parameters for the same indicator, it becomes very difficult to do daily runs of the systems. If you use the built-in indicators in your EDS trading system and change the parameters in the charts inadvertently, your system will no longer give the same results.
The solution is to code all of your indicators into each EDS file that you plan to use. For this purpose, I have coded many of the commonly used indicators so they can be cut and pasted into your trading systems. Additionally, I have coded many of the technical indicators and systems that are not part of AIQs built-in indicators. I have provided the EDS files for both AIQ's Built-In Indicators and my own Custom Indicators.
