hi guys,

1) have you found another platform that has a better zig zag / weis wave than SC? Namely, one that can perform and show real time calculation for "Last" setting? not sure if this is a technical limitation of SC or for this type of indicator in general. SC is the only trading platform ive used.

2) Is there a way for "Zig Zag Cumulative volume" to reference Zig Zag Study? so that reversal size setting is coped from the main study whenever a change is made. I ask because i use wave vol on every chart, 4 charts for one instrument, 7 instruments in total. This will be handy.

I had my own version coded back in 2013 (long before the SC zigzag is what it is now) and have stayed in contact with the developer improving it/tweaking it over the years. You'll either have to go down that route or put a feature request in to SC.

In regard to picking up the settings I asked that of my developer, he said it wasn't possible (at the time, several years ago) due to the way SC loads studies.
