Update on Metatrader 4 C++ DLL coding

Coding of my suite of indicators for the Metatrader 4 platform using C++ DLLs is on-going and below is a screen shot of my installation as it stands at the moment.
The indicators are the Cybercycle, with its 1, 2, 3 and 4 day leads in the sub plot, and the instantaneous trendline, in red, and the Tukey contol lines, blue, in the main chart.

One thing that I have come up against in this coding are some of the apparent limitations of the Metatrader 4 platform; for instance there is a limit to how many lines can be drawn, per indicator, in any chart window. Also I am not yet able to access the values of one indicator, in the sub plot for example, for plotting in the main chart, i.e. plotting arrows above/below the candlesticks to indicate where the leading Cybercycle functions cross each other. Either this requires some substantial "hack" or much more advanced Metaquote language programming skills than I possess at the moment.
