@Phi-Deltalytics,
I have been trading for years but just started with trading view and love the program.

I changed to study but get:
Add to Chart operation failed, reason: line 7: Undeclared identifier `study.percent_of_equity`;
line 7: Unknown argument `default_qty_type` of type type_error;
line 7: Unknown argument `default_qty_value` of type literal integer
Add to Chart operation failed, reason: line 7: Undeclared identifier `study.percent_of_equity`;
