I don't know whether I understand your strategy fully. 1) To me, your strategy consists of end-of-bar signals. If this is right, you should disable IOG. 2) There is an error on your code, the stop price at H+0.01, H is the current bar's high price. Your code will never issue a signal as price will n...

Thanks TJ!

Just to clarify again:

1) Does Order 2 (Buy this bar at Close) send order a little bit faster than Order 1 (Buy next bar at market)??

..... if so, Order 2 is superior than Order 1 in terms of timing to send order.

2) None of them is recommended for MOC order, right?
