Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

that means you send a stop order that is converted to a market order when your stop price is hit - which means at that moment the price you get filled could be better, too. However you might be closer to the price you want to get filled at and in cases where the bar gaps down for example the stop order might not get triggered, but the limit order would have been.

I think I found the solution:

replace the word "limit" with "stop"

sellshort next bar at value stop;
Thank you all
