Trade Bar

Can you direct me to a place that explains how to use the new Trade Bar in version 7. I need to use it but need to enter the right settings so trades go to (in my case) TT. I have highlighted TT as my "broker" but i still can't enter trades.

MC reads EL differently than TS - Why?

I seem to have countless examples recently of simply copying code from TS over to the Powerlanguage Editor - it compiles, I insert the signal in a chart (that uses TS data) and ... it gets different signals!! Surely I am not alone in having this happen. Are there certain commands or indicator calcul...

Re: Gap opens

except it's not working .. I added a second data stream = 1 minute. The historical time for an indicator that is = time data2 is always equal to the last time of the the day so all back-testing fails and no historical trades are shown

Re: Gap opens

I thought that wouldn't be necessary since I was using a 5 minute chart but I can see (now) why it's needed. In a similar vein - If I have a daily chart and have switched on iog and use an identical order I am getting fills at the opening tick .. is that because (in those cases) it's using the open ...

Gap opens

I need to say - if the open >high of yesterday then sell at the open - 10 ticks stop
Data1 = S&P 500 5 minute bars
Data2=S&P 500 daily bars

I wrote:
If opend(0)>highd(1) then sell 1 contract next bar at opend(0)-2 stop;

This does not work. I don't know why.

Re: MC -> Trading Technologies = orphaned limit orders

The data comes from TS. If I write buy at close*100+25 stop the system will never show a fill (since the chart doesn't show the price ever hitting that level)

Re: MC -> Trading Technologies = orphaned limit orders

I have a case where - when I switch on a chart to automated- an order is apparently sent and filled but it's not one that appears in the chart. It says "my stop order was filled" what order?! There may in fact be a stop way above the market but why is it getting filled. It seems that TT uses prices ...

Converting a EOD system to intraday

I want to use open next bar +- to enter and exit the market. That means I need to convert a normal daily bar chart and .... Is the easiest way to just stick with a daily chart and add a new data series = the 1 minute chart and substitute "open next bar" with opend(0) of data2 ??

Will that work?
