I have a function that works fine in multible indicators but as soon as I use it in a strategy I get a"Floating Point Division by Zero" error. All divisions are incased in Iff statements and the code is flawless with indicators. Hoping someone may have some other possibility that I could look into. Thanks in advance.

there probably is at least one division at your code where the divisor is zero at one moment (could be at the very first calculation). Otherwise this error shouldn't come up.
What exactly do you check with your IFF statement?

You might have to block parts of your code or add print statements (to see where the calculation stops) in order to isolate where the problem is coming from. This will make it easier to find and fix.
