Re: help with forex strategy [SOLVED]

Hi TJ, thanks so much for pointing the mistake, I've replace the "=" with "cross above" and "cross under", the strategy worked straight away! I didn't think it would have such big impact on the outcome. Thank you again for helping and wish you a nice day!

Re: how to reference the previous bar when IOG is enabled?

Hi siscop and squid, thank you for the clarification.

so when IOG is enabled, variable[1] is the variable value of the previous bar and not the previous tick. When "sell next bar at market" is used, it means sell at next tick, only for the purpose of intra bar order execution.

Re: how to reference the previous bar when IOG is enabled?

hi Siscop, thanks for the reply. I did a backtest of a sample strategy based on MovAvg to see whether it's referencing the previous bar or previous tick. When IOG is enabled, and MovAvg > MovAvg[1] gives a result that tick value is used instead of the close of last bar. sample1.jpg [IntrabarOrderGen...

how to reference the previous bar when IOG is enabled?

Hi from what I understand, when IntraBarOrderGeneration is enabled, next bar means next tick, and 1 bar ago means 1 tick ago. If so, how do one actually reference the previous Bar value instead of previous tick? For example: [IntraBarOrderGeneration = true] If MovAvg > MovAvg [1] then Buy 1 contract...

this is what I think how MC should work if the Time out is set to 0 second: when setprofittarget is used, normally the limit order should be sent out to TWS as soon as entry is made. However when the user choose to set the timeout conversion to 0 second, NO limit orders are sent to the TWS upon entr...

hi, Marina, thanks for the info. However if you check the actual IOG option in MC software, the second option is: "Limit this signal to one entry AND one exit per bar".

It's an "and" instead of "or", is it a type in MC?
