Something along the lines of below, for MultiCharts at least:
if date <> date then begin
nbrtradestoday = 0;
if MarketPosition <> 0 and MarketPosition = 0 then nbrtradestoday += 1;
if nbrtradestoday >= 1 then #return;

Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

The following user says Thank You to Big Mike for this post:
I am developing a system for the E-mini S&P and I am having some troubles limiting the number of trades per day. I have searched in the forum and i have found that there are some functions and reserved words such as entriestoday or entrydate which could be useful to limit the number of trades per day. However, they are limited to 10 positions ago and I would like to set the maximum number of buys to 25 or 30 per day.
Has anyone made a script that sets a limit on how many buys or trades can be traded per day? Anyone could give me some advice on how I could do it?
