I wanted to share a Strategy I have worked on over the years with a fellow trader. I only wanted it to work for a short period of time and would have a password on EL access. I remember I was told once that there is an EL statement that you can put at the bottom that reads the date and if the date has passed, the Strategy will not execute any signals.

Can anyone provide an example?

Let's say you wanted it to stop Feb 1, 2020

If date<1200201 then begin

//all your buy and sell code

end;

//extra code just in case there are open positions on Feb 1,2020

If date>1200201 then begin

sell next bar at market;
buytocover next bar at market;

end;



Note that even if you protect the code before you send it, the protection is weak and easily hackable...

Kevin: Even if I use a real long password and really mix it up? I read a few articles on how to design very hard to break passwords. I have rented a TradeStation system in the past and I couldn't use it after a short period of time - say 30 days. I am sure the owner of the code used a statement like yours. Do all of these TS/EL strategy designers sell their system at high risk of them being stolen? Thanks in advance for your help. John

There is a website that will decrypt ANY locked Tradestation code, unless it is from the Tradestation Network or App Store. I don't think password complexity has any bearing on it.
