I'm a new user trying to evaluate Wealth Lab. I'm trying to setup some buy and sell conditions that require two functions I can't find or figure out:

1. How do I pair conditions with "and" / "or" ? For example, I'd like to BUY/SELL when either 2 conditions are met or when 2 other conditions are met. So that would be two "and" pairings connected by an "or". Do I need to learn to write code or is there an easier way?

2. How do I reference an indicator for a fixed stock or index? For example, the direction of an MA for the SP-500.

1. Conditions are "ANDed" automatically as you can find in the Wealth-Lab User Guide (Help menu) > Strategy Window > Strategy Builder. There is an easier way for "OR" than coding and you're about to discover it there as well - in the same chapter of the User Guide.

2. This is easily possible in code but not many conditions in Rules allow for that. For example, your condition appears in our Community.Rules library > External Symbol.

Thanks for your help, I now see the "OR" function, but i'm stuck on item 2. I created an account on the Wiki, but not sure how to download the additional rules. Do i have to create a ticket for each rule or can I get the entire set somehow?

The entire set is downloaded once plus you get access to all Wealth-Lab Extensions on successful pass of Wealth-Lab Pro entitlement test.
