  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Hi All ,

The below code buys sells at market .Can it be changed to a buy stop (one cent higher) sell stop (one cent lower) and does anyone know how one would go about entering it in ???


[IntrabarOrderGeneration = True]
INPUTS: RSILen(21),PcntRLen(12),RSIBuy(42),PctRBuy(20),RSISell(59),PcntRSell(89);
//Poss 14


PcntR1 = PercentR(PcntRLen);

If RSI1 < RSIBuy and PcntR1 < PctRBuy
Buy this bar;

If RSI1 > RSISell and PcntR1 > PcntRSell
Sell this Bar;

//Print(DAte,Time,RSI1 ,RSI1 > RSISell ,PcntR1 ,PcntR1 > PcntRSell) ;

you would do it like this for example:
//Sell within the next bar on the first tick with a price of 100 or less: 

Sell Next Bar 100 Stop;
Stop orders can only be executed on the next bar, but as your code seems to use intrabar order generation "next bar" would equal "next tick".
