Hi, I'm really strugling understanding how to use the Delay() indicator. It is a usual case to want to look at the value of an indicator X bars ago. This is my usual algorithm template. Running the sample below throws the following error pointing at the RegisterIndicator() line. Thanks for any comments/recommendations/criticisms:
