Hi All

Trying to build this entry:

Place limit order at yesterdays low - yesterdays range(H to L) if possible or alternatively place a market order if price falls below same yesterdays low - yesterdays range(H to L) threshold

Somehow cant figure it out..?

@aczk Here are the two options:

 
Code
buy next bar at LowD(1) - (HighD(1) - LowD(1)) limit ;
 
if close < LowD(1) - (HighD(1) - LowD(1)) then buy next bar at market ;
