What version of TradeStation are you using? Does your strategy fill market orders fine?

Thanks for your message

Tradestation 9.5. Yes, market orders are executed properly.
I've changed my code so that all entry and exit orders are stop orders ... not ideal b/c of increased slippage.

I just saw that there is a Tradestation function:
MarketIfTouchedOrder(Frequency,Account,Action,SymbolCategory,Symbol,Quantity,Duration,GTDDate,IfTouched)

I'm still trying to figure out how to implement it in easylanguage. It could solve the problem more transparently than checking boxes (that don't seem to do what I think it should do..).
