I have a bunch of entry strategies that all rely on CalcOnBarClose=True. However, once in a while price goes in your direction really quickly and you want to exit to secure gains immediately, before the bar closes. For example, if price has 12 ticks gain on entry bar, then exit before close. Anyone have a good way of doing this without changing CalcOnBarClose to false?

Thanks in advance!


@spinnybobo is doing something similar, if you're also ok with just live.
