Using Previous User Defined ThinkScript Studies


New member
Hi, I am new to think script and wondered if there is a way to use the values from one TOS user defined studies in another user defined study.

For example, one indicator which sends buy signals, one that sends sell signals and a master indicator to evaluate the signals and sequence/control the issuance of the final buy / sell signals.

A second questions is if there are any undocumented ways to actually execute an order directly in TOS as opposed to just a "virtual" order in the strategies? If not, does anyone know of a reason why the TOS platform does not provide this functionality.

I am aware of the TD Ameritrade API, but would like to work within the platform.

Thanks very much for any assistance.
No Auto trading in TOS, the other questions are yes, look through the strategies, maybe there's something there that will answer your questions..
