Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • 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.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Just set the Running property of the strategy you're calling to True and it will start.

Thanks zwentz,

I put this is the code I posted earlier:

protected override void OnBarUpdate()
         cStrat.Running = true; 
And NT7b22 wasn't very happy as per the attached.

Can you throw me a code snippet you used to get it to work? Thanks.

Was anyone successful at this task (starting the strategy from within strategy)?

My trial and error method of solving the issue has not been successful so far (at least in regards to my objective of coupled backtesting).
