I'm trying to write a simple system that would buy at each N-th BAR (NOT "date") of each month. For.ex.: buy each 1st bar on the beginning of each month.
But I cannot figure out how to realize it in Wealth Script.
Could anyone help please?

Hi Eugene!

Thanks for answering!
I'm using Wealth Lab Developer and still it's not clear for me what exact part of the above code should I put into CharScript Editor as it doesn't understand any of the above?

p.s: Just noticed,...i suppose i should have posted this question in Wealth-Lab 4 forum branch?

For sure.

Anyway, the pattern is pretty clear to code in WL4: detect the bar when month has changed, save it into an integer variable (e.g newMonth), then check if the current bar is equal to (that variable + offset).

Eugene's method is probably more efficient, but this is more straightforward for anyone asking this question -
