Setexitonclose in Auto Trading

Postby ppan » 27 Aug 2007

I'm using 15 mins bar for auto trading. If the market close at 15:15 and I want to exit all position at 15:05. How can I set the Setexitonclose command to exit earlier?

Hello,

At the moment this cannot be done.

We are planning to add intrabar order generation functionality in future MC versions which would make exits like the one you described possible.

This is a free API that should allow you to do things intrabar.
So far it has solved my dilema of needing to make trades intrabar.
Some day hopefully soon MC will too have this capabilities


Since the new forum rules won't allow me to post a address to the API you can find it on IB web site under freelance

Look for Trade Commander
