rmandel00 asked in a deleted duplicate thread (search the forum before creating threads, please):

QUOTE:
I downloaded this strategy and attempted to run it with SPY but get a runtime error
Object Reference not set to an instance of an object
At WealthLab.Strategies.Gardner 12_2012 Execute()
At WealthLab WealthSCript SetContext(String symbol.Boolean synchronize)
At WealthLAb.Bars.ctor(Bars b)

What is the problem and how can I fix it or how can I trace it down?
Thanks,
Rich Man
