I'm in the process of testing an automated strategy and I've run into a problem with NT. I don't fully understand what is going on other than to say that it's an overfill issue. The strategy that I am running only trades long but some how after overfilling places a short trade in an attempt to correct things. Has anyone run into this before and if so, how did you fix it? What are your order handling options? Thanks

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?

Any programmers who understand the Managed method for avoiding Overfill? I'll do another version to check OnExecution as I suspect the problems could surface there too. I want to force overfills in this trial so I can understand how to code around the potential problem...
zeller4, were you successful with creating a strategy that forced overfills with a sim account. I'm working on a similar problem and saw you posted on NT forum. If you have any examples of how you wrote your OnExecution overfill handling I would really appreciate it.
