Re: Determine TIF of order from code (GTC / Day)

Can it be changed that all market orders are forced to use DAY for TIF. On the ICE exchange all market orders with TIF of GTC will be rejected. This isnt a problem on CME.

Hi,

Is it possible to determine the TIF of an order (GTC / DAY ) from the code rather than use general settings for all orders on the charts?

i thought the code below would turn trade_on to false. So 1. when an order is placed above a high and i'm filled. 2. When bars between time order is placed is greater than bars_valid.

if marketposition = 1 then trade_on = false;
if (BarNumber - bar_number) > Bars_valid then trade_on= false
