Trading day of the month/year counter

Dear All,

I need help I'm trying to implement a trading day of the month/year strategy.

Where a trade would be entered on the open of a particular trading day of particular month or year and then exit on the close of that day.

I'm having a problem creating the counter for either.


 
Code
Inputs:
Month1(0),
TDOM1(0);



Variables: 
TDOM (0);

TDOM = 0;

If month(Date) = Month1 then
Begin
TDOM = TDOM + 1;
End;

If TDOM = TDOM1 then
Buy 1 Contract next bar open;

If barssinceentry=0 then
Sell 1 contract this bar close;
Thanks for the help!!!!!

edgeseek,

I would suggest to add print statements to your code to find out what values TDOM has throughout your code.

Print (Reserved Word)

Thanks but do you know how to deal with the trading day counter?

I can call a particular month as month of January = 1 but

then on counting the trading days from the beginning of the month to the end is where I have an issue!

Print doesn't because the counter does not work, if I enter 1 as in first trading day it gives me results for trading every day for a particular month entering 2 would give me 0 trades.

edgeseek,

the counter works, the problem is that you reset the counter variable to 0 on every code computation. That's why I suggested using print, so you can see the values that your code computes.
