OK guys, thank you so much aganin for your help!
It exits now on friday. But that function is triggered very rarely. So it doesn't really have an influence on the result.

Nevertheless, I attached this code for backtesting entries on their "percent profitable". For those who wanna use it.

-> For Forex, turn "exit on close" off and "exit on friday" on.
-> The entry rule is of course just an example.
-> "Bars since Entry" is there for the exit since we just wanna compare how good the entry rule is. If you have a similar result on several values (like exit after 2, 4 and 6 bars) thats a good sign.
