Hi David,

I’ve been using the ABC, Quasimodo indicator that you’ve been working on now for months and I’ve been able to use it for every market that I’ve look at it for. Recently, I’ve been trading the ZB (30 Year Bond Futures US) which I’ve been paying extra for on TradingView but I’ve run into a problem. I noticed a while back that strategies, in general, don’t provide any backtesting data for that particular instrument. I’m using the ’ZB1!’ chart with CBOT data plan if you need to reference it in TradingView. You will be able to use the data package for free with a 10 minute delay so it should be replicatable on your end.I found an article that sort of explains the issue and provides some workarounds and I was wondering if you might be able to implement it into your boilerplate so that I can apply the strategy to this market.

Here is the link to the article:

It has Pinescript examples and hopefully would be easy to make a part of your boilerplate for others to use also. Please let me know if there is anything I can further research or help with if this is something you might be able to implement. I appreciate you and what you’ve built. Much love my friend.

Best,
Blake
