Thanks, that made the entries all occur on 1 bar, but.... lol, its so funny, now ALL entries are on the bar, even if i put my target 3 to a huge amount and my stop to a huge amount, it should have some exits on other bars.....

I am really appreciative of your help...

"now ALL entries are on the bar"

You mean: all exits?
Is it still the same code as above?
Could you post a chart showing the problem?

Yes, ok here is the code, and below is the chart...

I have the feeling that the code does exactly what you ask it to do.

 
Code
if CurrentShares = 300 then begin

print ("*********barstatus at exit commands = " + NumToStr(barstatus(1),0));

Sell("Exit L100-CS300 Target") 100 Shares Next Bar at (EntryPrice + t1) Limit;
Sell("Exit L100-CS300 Stop") 100 Shares Next Bar at st1 Stop;
Sell("Exit L200-CS300 Target") 100 Shares Next Bar at (EntryPrice + t1) Limit;
Sell("Exit L200-CS300 Stop") 100 Shares Next Bar at st2 Stop;
Sell("Exit L300-CS300 Target") 100 Shares Next Bar at (EntryPrice + t1) Limit;
Sell("Exit L300-CS300 Stop") 100 Shares Next Bar at st3 Stop;
end;

LOL, ooops... Sorry .. Yep that was the problem.

How do I make allow unlimited entries and exits per bar as default? is there a script command for that?

Thanks so much Nicholas!

Without having checked, I would say that it is not possible to change the default setting, and that you have to check each time you add a strategy. But I may be wrong.

I think that the previous trade is not closed.
You are still long 100 contracts.

When you ask the code to print TickSize, which value of TickSize does it print?
