Limit number of trades per day (Algo)

Postby stefanols » 01 May 2015

Hi,
How can I limit to number of trades for signal in autotrading.

For instance I just want it to take 10 trades.

I found this code but can not make it work:

vars:
nbrtradestoday (0);

if date <> date[1] then begin

nbrtradestoday = 0;

end;

if MarketPosition <> 0 and MarketPosition[1] = 0 then nbrtradestoday += 1;

if nbrtradestoday >= 1 then #return;

Thanks in advance!

BR Stefan

Try this:

Code: Select all

Inputs: max_trades(2); // for example max of 2 trades a day

If (EntriesToday(date) < max_trades) then begin

your entry code

end;

This will work as well;

Code: Select all

input: MaxTrades(1);
If tradestoday(d)<MaxTrades then begin
// your code here
End;
