Hi all!

I am trying to write an EasyLanguage code that takes a limit entry "once into the future", but not neccessarily "at this bar" or "at next bar". Is this possible?

Yes, just save the price you want the limit order in a variable, xxxx for example.

Then, when the time is right, say: buy next bar at xxxx limit;

Thanks, but I understand that I may have not been clear.

I am trying to write a code that for example places a limit order 100 pips above current price action if two MAs are crossing. This may not happen before several bars after the crossing itself. Will the order be "waiting" in system until the entry price is met, or must the fill happen "on next bar" if I use the term next bar in the code?

Bodil,

you can use a flag that you set to true once the MAs cross. Then you use the flag together with your order.

if MyFlag then Buy next bar at xxxx limit;

So long the flag remains true the order will be active.
