Hi Y'all. I noticed that most SF indicator examples take a constant as a parameter such as MA(20).

Can SF handle variables as parameters? For instance, if I use set{var1, aroon up (100)} can I now
use MA(var1) later in the same filter?

Thanks in advance.

no, the value in the parenthesis of a moving average must be an integer.

Thanks for the quick reply chetron.

I am new to SF, but I have a couple of decades of trading and programming experience. Do you know where I can find a document that covers the backtesting feature in detail?
