For auto strategy, i want to know that I am working on price movement based strategy. I have condition for buy & sell working good, but if i need that every hour it should take trade based on one same condition. what code should i use for 8.30 then 9.30 then 10.30 & so on.For this i have to put the same code every time for every hour which is too lengthy .
Like for buy at
if (ToTime(Time[0]) == ToTime(8, 30, 0) ( this is for one trade at 8.30)
I want to now if one code is sufficient for multiple trades at different times like 9.30,then10.30 & so on .

you can try something like this.

in the variables put this

 
Code
private int timeint = 83000; //8:30AM

and this stuff in OnBarUpdate

 
Code
if (ToTime(Time[0]) == timeint)
{
       //do stuff

       //assign the next time
       timeint += 10000;
}
make a public property of timeint so that you can assign a value.

ToTime(Time[0]) returns an integer. like if Time[0] equals 8:30 AM then the int value will be 83000

whenever the condition is fulfilled (i.e. ToTime(Time[0]) == 83000) you do your stuff (place order and whatever) and reset the int value (timeint) to the next time (by adding 10000, which is equivalant to one hour)

or just check that timeint % 10000 == 3000
