Which Rule Do I Break "Managed approach"

Hello to you,

I’m obviously breaking a rule using the managed approach

I’m not really good at reading “log file” thought I’m working hard on it

My initialise() section says

CalculateOnBarClose = true;
EntryHandling = EntryHandling.AllEntries;

SetStopLoss (CalculationMode.Ticks, Stop);

Meeting certain conditions My Strategy wants to send two orders (sometimes one order only and that works perfect)
TimeInForce is GTC

Let’s suppose we go long
A EnterLong() with a SetStopLoss() and a SetProfitTarget() tagged “Order1”
And in the same set of instruction

A EnterLongStop() tagged “Order2” let’s say X(value) above the entry price of the previous EnterLong() average filled price.

Both should Exit at the “Profit Target” of “Order1”

Here is the code generating the error

private void GoLong()
Print(ChartName + " ACHAT EST LANCE"+String.Format("{0:HH:mm:ss}",DateTime.Now)+" "+Price);
SetProfitTarget ("order1",CalculationMode.Ticks,Target);
EnterLong(Coef , "order1");

if(GainToReach > 65)// let’s suppose it is above 65
And now I Hit the problem


startPice = Positions[0].AvgPrice + Xparam*TickSize;
Print("startPice "+startPice);
orderStopName = "LongOrderStop";
SetProfitTarget (orderStopName,CalculationMode.Ticks,Yparam);


It compiles nice and beautiful
Coef , X , Y have a printout in the output windows and are certified “Clean”

Witch rule do I break

Thanks in advance

In #init set TraceOrders = true; and then review the output dialog box.


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.
