  1. hello all, hope someone can help me out. i'm a newb with easylanguage and need to code the following.

    given a set of criteria's, how can i code in easylanguage to start buying shares at a certain time? e.g., to start buying hour after the open? i want to input time so that i can test different minutes...i.e.,15 minutes, 30 minutes, 2 hours, etc. after open.

    does anyone know? thanks in advance.
     
  2. There are many ways of coding certain criterias in EL.

    input:mytime(1000), my1stime(1030), my2ndtime(1100);
    condition1= ..........;{your condition}
    condition2= ..........;{your condition}
    if condition1 and condition2 and time=mytime then buy 100 shares at the market.
    or better way is
    if condition1 and condition2 and (time > my1stime and time < my2ndtime) then buy 100 shares at the market.
    your input based on 5min, 10min, 30min,... increament.
