BarsSinceExit

Hi All,

In my strategy I want to add a clause that doesn't allow the same strategy to enter until 1 bar after an exit has occurred. What I have come up with is this but it isn't working.

If (barssinceexit>1 or Total Trades<1) then {strategy}. If anyone can clarify why this isn't working please let me know and thank you in advance.

jessehhhh,

what do you mean by "it isn't working", what is happening exactly? Can you post code that can be used to reproduce what you are seeing?

ABCTG,

I mean when I used the code

If (barssinceexit>1 or totaltrades<1) then

begin...

On my chart it still shows a trade beginning in the same bar that a previous trade exited from the same strategy.

I don't use barssinceexit but I know that barssinceentry doesn't update till the next bar.

You could track the position

MP = marketposition;
If (MP=0 and MP[1]=0) then begin...

jessehhhh,

I would suggest using the print reserved word to check the value the reserved words hold within your code.
Like @SMCJB mentioned they might only get updated at the end of the bar and you could act on "old" information.

Hello SMCJB,

I was just searching for a solution because I have the same problem with barsinceexit(1) and MULTICHARTS. I'm not able to make it work ..

So I tryed you solution by checking the position by using this code:

 
Code
if marketposition = 0 and marketposition[1] = 0 and marketposition[2] = 0 then begin
but it doesn't work!! I can still see on a 15 minutes bar chart 2 consecutive trades , one in a bar and another in the following bar. How's that possible?
is marketposition[1] referring only the the effective market position at the end of a bar? because the first trade has been filled and close INSIDE a 15 minutes bar so at the end of the bar the marketposition is AGAIN zero.

What do you think?

Thanks

David

I don't think you can use marketposition[1], it isn't a variable like that, hence the need for MP = marketposition and then use MP[1]

Hi @Dvdkite,

I don't have an answer to your questions about barsinceexit, but I've noticed that you have opened a couple of threads with "barsinceexit(1)" in the title. There seems to be an issue with threads titled this way, which makes them not accessible. There is no issue with just plain "barsinceexit" without the "(1)" -- if you wonder why you're not getting many replies to those posts, this is the reason.

For instance, this thread is fine, and it uses "barsinceexit" alone.

So if you want to post your question, please just refer to "barsinceexit" by itself in the thread title, leaving off the "(1)".

I hope you find your answer.

Bob.

Thanks for the suggestion but it doesn't work also using your suggestion... (I'm using multicharts).. I'm struggling to avoid consecutive entries and I cannot make it work...
