I'm a newbie first off...I created an algo code in EasyLanguage and everything says "ok" and it backtests well however when I get a Short Exit signal my algo will buy and vice versa.

I cant figure out why it works well in backtesting and then when run live it buys/sells on offsetting exit signals.... I do not have begin/end in the code, could this be the issue?

Any guidance is much appreciated!!!! Thank you

the platform will most likely only do what the code says, so the solution is probably in the code. Without seeing the code it's hard to point you in the right direction.
