Re: easylanguage TL_new in tickchart

Would you agree?

Keeps asking me to transmit orders...

Hi,

I am running a strategy with code that updates the orders every tick if unfilled, the problem is, it asks me to resubmit every tick or so, even if the buy and sell orders are the same value... so what do i do about that? is there a way where it wont keep asking me to submit new orders?
