Hi,

Have you tried following a suggestion from the Wiki FAQ? There are two, a more general one for backtesting and a modification of the technique for alerts:

How to pass a value from Strategy to PosSizer for Alert sizing?

As exemplified there, you can pass virtually anything from a simple variable to custom object of any complexity (that would have to be unboxed on the receiving end - i.e. the PosSizer).
