Time Seconds with Easylanguage

Hi All,

I'm trying to place an automatic order in Tradestation (using Easylanguage) at an specific time. For example:

If time = 15h:14m:50s place order.

Any way to do this with easylanguage? I can get time with minutes, but not seconds. Any ideas?

Thanks,
-Ale

I'm pretty sure TradeStation does not support second resolution, just based on what I have read.

MultiCharts does, btw. See "CurrentTime_s" and other examples in the help under Date and Time section.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. 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? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

This can be done in Tradestation by creating a strategy with Intrabarordergeneration ON and using the PlaceOrder command for your order. The strategy needs to be on a chart with an index symbol that updates every second, and you'll need to use ComputerDateTime to get the seconds from your computer which also means you need to make sure your computers clock is in sync. Since the symbol you are trading is probably on a different chart you'll also need to use the GlobalVariables to communicate between the charts. Or, you could just use MultiCharts.
