Hi. I have been tooling off and on with TOS for over a year and cannot figure out a couple of things. 1. how to make my strategies trigger at the end of the bar rather than the open of the next bar. 2. How to use bars to exit a position - for example, enter on X - exit one bar from X. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks

There are a few ways to get it to use the close of the current bar, the easiest way since I don't know your code would be:
AddOrder(OrderType.buy_to_open, condition = cond1, price =close, tradeSize = contracts, arrowcolor = Color.RED, name = "b01" );
The easiest close after your condition would probably be something like:
def CloseCond = cond1[1]; # if buy condition happened one bar ago, true.
