Multichart: Intrabar stoploss execution in entry bar

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by futlapperl, Jan 8, 2008.

  1. Hi,
    i've coded a new signal in multichart using PL and am now having a problem with the <b>intrabar generation of stoploss orders in the entry bar</b>.

    Stoploss orders are generated correctly in all following bars after the entry bar, but not within.

    Also, in the EL_Essentials.pdf reference guide (download from the tssupport site) it says on page 90:
    ... this does not apply to my signal/strategy. If the stoploss is reached, the order is only executed at the next bar (using 30min bars), which leads to partly much higher losses than defined in the Setstoploss() function.

    Any ideas?

    Thx in advance,


    Screenshot shows the execution of the stoplossorder at 6988 after the entry at 6974. Stoploss is set to 5 points, so it should be executed at 6979 in the entry bar:
