Dzam,

depending on how you name your orders, you could check for the order name of the last closed trade. You could also check for the entry and exit price and use that to derive what order was used to close the trade.

I have read this guide, but have not find answers...
There is my code:

 
Code
using PowerLanguage.Function;

namespace PowerLanguage.Strategy {
	public class TestStrat : SignalObject {
		public TestStrat(object _ctx):base(_ctx){}
		
        private IOrderStopLimit enter_long_slimit;
        private IOrderStopLimit enter_short_slimit;
        double bar_size;

        protected override void Create()
        {
            enter_long_slimit = OrderCreator.StopLimit(new SOrderParameters(EOrderAction.Buy, "LSEntry"));

            enter_short_slimit = OrderCreator.StopLimit(new SOrderParameters(EOrderAction.SellShort, "SSEntry"));
        }

        protected override void StartCalc()
        {
            Output.Clear();
        }
		protected override void CalcBar()
        {
            Output.WriteLine("EntryPrice = {0}, ExitPrice = {1}, ExitTime = {2}", this.EntryPrice(0), this.ExitPrice(0), this.ExitTime(0));

            if (StrategyInfo.MarketPosition != 0)
            {
                GenerateProfitTargetPt(10);
                GenerateStopLossPt(5);
            }
            else
            {
                bar_size = Bars.High[1] - Bars.Low[1];
                if(bar_size > this.AverageTrueRange(150, 1) / 100 * 200)
                {
                    if(Bars.Close[0] > Bars.Open[0])
                    {
                        enter_long_slimit.Send(Bars.High[0], Bars.High[0]);
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        enter_short_slimit.Send(Bars.Low[0], Bars.Low[0]);
                    }
                }
            }
		}
	}
}
And this is what i have in the output window:

 
Code
EntryPrice = 2061,75, ExitPrice = 0, ExitTime = 01.01.0001 0:00:00
EntryPrice = 2061,75, ExitPrice = 0, ExitTime = 01.01.0001 0:00:00
EntryPrice = 2061,75, ExitPrice = 0, ExitTime = 01.01.0001 0:00:00
EntryPrice = 0, ExitPrice = 0, ExitTime = 01.01.0001 0:00:00
ExitPrice alltime is = 0.

CurrentPosition.ClosedTraders - alltime is empty, but CurrentPosition.OpenTrades is filling after open new position.

Dzam,

if you are dealing with closed positions Currentposition might not help you and you can access the information you need via Positions[].
