In case you use Global Variables for example, you'd use one set of Global Variables for the systems and their numbers. I would create an input in the system for the system number (or name), the global variable element location for the name and an additional number for the maximum number of systems you are using.

Using the maximum number of systems you can loop through all numbers, retrieve the signal names for each signal and with that you can look up the market positions etc. (which of course needs to be stored in each signal and a set of global variables).
It might sound a bit complicated, but it works well.

ABCTG

yes a little bit, but i m going to understand....

For example:

CODE 1

if (marketposition <>0) then FlagSys1 = true
if (marketposition = 0) then FlagSys1 = false

if (conditionlong and FlagSys2)
buy 1 share....
if (conditionshort and FlagSys2)
sellShort 1 share....

CODE 2

if (marketposition <>0) then FlagSys2 = true
if (marketposition = 0) then FlagSys2 = false

if (conditionlong and FlagSys1)
buy 1 share....
if (conditionshort and FlagSys1)
sellShort 1 share....


Which is the best way to permit to CODE 1 to see FlagSys2 variabile and to CODE 2 to see FlagSys1 variable ?

i need to use data 1 data 2 data 3 data 4 ?

can i use it from different charts ?

Thank you again for your time.

There is no need for Data2 etc. unless you use it in your system of course. Let's assume one signal is on chart 1 and a second signal on chart 2.
You use Global Variables so the signal on chart 2 knows the market position on chart 1 (or what ever you want to check for).
If the signal on chart 1 is in a position you can use this information to block the execution on chart 2.

Did you take a look at the document and demo code that comes with the Global Variables? If you don't have it, I can upload it here.

Hello again,

i tried to do it:


CODE 1

 
Code
                            
var: Num_GV_1(0),flagma(0),flagsto(0);
Num_GV_1 GVSetInteger(2,flagma);
flagsto GVGetInteger(1);

    IF ( 
marketposition <> 0then
    flagma 
1;
    if (
marketposition 0then
    flagma 
0;
    
condition2 c CROSS ABOVE Average(C,8);
condition3 c CROSS BELOW Average(C,8);

IF (
marketposition <> and CONDITION2 and flagsto 0then
    BUY 
"malong" 1 share NEXT BAR AT MARKET;

IF (
marketposition <> -and CONDITION3 and flagsto 0)  then 
    SELLSHORT 
"mashort" )  1 share NEXT BAR AT MARKET;

    IF ( 
marketposition =  and c CROSS BELOW Average(C,8)  ) then 
    SELL 
"masell" from entry ("malong"1 share NEXT BAR AT MARKET;

    IF ( 
marketposition = -and c CROSS ABOVE Average(C,8) ) then 
    BUYTOCOVER 
"macover" from entry ("mashort"1 share NEXT BAR AT MARKET

CODE 2

 
Code
                            
var: Num_GV_1(0),flagma(0),flagsto(0);
Num_GV_1 GVSetInteger(1,flagsto);
flagma GVGetInteger(2) ;
    IF ( 
marketposition <> 0then
    flagsto 
1;
    if (
marketposition 0then
    flagsto 
0;
    
condition2 rsi(c,14) < 40;
condition3 rsi(c,14) > 60;

IF ( 
marketposition <> and CONDITION2 AND flagma then  
    BUY 
"RSILONG" 1 share NEXT BAR AT MARKET;
        
IF ( 
marketposition <> -and CONDITION3  AND flagma 0then 
    SELLSHORT 
"RSISHORT" )  1 share NEXT BAR AT MARKET;
    
    IF ( 
marketposition =  and rsi(c,14)>50 then 
    SELL 
"RSISELL" from entry ("RSILONG"1 share NEXT BAR AT MARKET;

    IF ( 
marketposition = -and rsi(c,14)<50 then 
    BUYTOCOVER 
"RSICOVER" from entry ("RSISHORT"1 share NEXT BAR AT MARKET

this should let the system to buy/short only if flag is = 0, but it doesn t work, in backtesting and in paper trading neither, 0 operations.

Anyone can help me ? what i did wrong ?

Thx again !
