Range bars by definition end when the price leaves the range.
So what do you mean with "closing price of current range bar"?
The lower/upper limit of the range bar? (A limit order / stop order there would be an answer then ...)

To avoid the usual pitfalls with "backtesting" on range bars, look for the related threads here on (formerly BMT).

A strategy can be used to accomplish this. If your strategy is set to "CalculateOnBarClose=True" then you can use the buy or sell limit method with Close[0] as the limit price ...


When the current range bar closes the strategy will place a limit order to buy at the closing price of the current range bar. Since it is a limit order, it may or may not be filled dependent upon future price action.
