Strategy Entry/Exit Visualization

Hey Strat Programmers!
Please view the attached screenshot for a couple trade markers and let me know if this is expected behavior or not.

The entry/exit marker plotted on a candle is shown above the high or below the low of that candle. The actual high / low of the following candle would have allowed the order to fill.

I'm using the following order types:
 
Code

EnterLong(DefaultQuantity, "target1");
SetStopLoss("target1", CalculationMode.Price, Position.AvgPrice-autoBreakEvenPlusTicks*TickSize, false);
 
EnterLong(DefaultQuantity, "target2");
 

SetStopLoss("target2", CalculationMode.Price, Position.AvgPrice-autoBreakEvenPlusTicks*TickSize, false);
 

If I understand right, this is part of the NT internal order handling. If there's something I need to do differently in my code (ie, by verifying High[0] above or Low[0] below) or an option that needs set differently, please let me know.

Thanks for your help.
Kirk

is this simulation or real trades?

if it is real trades and you are using market orders then it is quite common for the entry signal to be generated on one bar but the price has moved outside the bar by the time you are filled, however since the signal was generated on that bar ninja still draws the entry there.

Do you get the same behavior using a normal Range chart?

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

shifted fill marks in chart

Hey guys, did you already find out what's wrong with those trade marks in chart?
It borders me too. I have written to NT support with no results.
