How To: Spreadsheet auto trade.. lmt buy -2 ticks

Hi,

When using the Spreadsheet System for Trading, is there a way when the K col (Buy Entry) or M col (Sell Entry) is set True to enter a limit of -/+2 ticks of Col E (Last Price) instead of a Buy Market at the Current Price?

Thank You!!!

To place a Limit entry 2 ticks from the Close of the signal in K3 or M3, do this:
-Put this in J22:
=E4-2*J21
Put this in J24:
=E4+2*J21
-Set J71 and J73 to L

Make sure you are working on the Sheet# that matches the the 'Formula Source Sheet Number' in the spreadsheet study settings.

You should have started a new thread for this question, because it is unrelated to the original title and subject.

If the spreadsheet study is only on one chart, keep it simple:
-Set the 'Chart Data Output Sheet Number' to 0
-Set the 'Formula Source Sheet Number' to match its Chart#
-Set the 'Always Set Formula Source Sheet Number To Output Sheet Number' to No
-Only work on the Sheet# that matches its Chart#
