I am having trouble with a BarsSinceExit clause in my buy strategy.

My sell strategy uses an intrabarordergeneration setting for profit target. When it hits this profit I dont want my strategy to buy off of the bar that signaled a sell order for my ProfitTarget.

when I use the code BarsSinceEntry>1 or TotalTrades<1 in my buy strategy it only returns 1 buy for the day and isn't calculating based off of the bars since entry.

Is there a workaround for this?

jessehhhh,

your code for BarsSinceEntry doesn't specify the position that you want to look at it.

 
Code
BarsSinceEntry(Num) 

Where Num is a whole number (up to a maximum 10) representing positions ago.
If you don't specify a value for Num, the current position will be used. This will however result in a value of 0 for BarsSinceEntry when you are flat. It appears what you are looking for is the BarsSinceEntry value for the previously closed position.

Regards,
