How to disable "Stop auto-trading after X rejected orders"

Postby thomashck » 15 Nov 2016

Hi MC support team,
I use MC9.1 and found that "Stop auto-trading after X rejected orders" can not be disabled...
But in Wiki it said:https://www.multicharts.com/trading-sof ... o_Trading:
"When enabled the auto-trading will be automatically turned off after the specified number of the strategy orders is rejected. By default this option is disabled."

It said "By default this option is disabled", I didn't find any checkbox for it and only the "X" times can be edited.

Please advise me, thanks in advance.

Hello thomashck,

There is no way to disable this functionality. I have updated the Wiki page. Thanks for noticing.

Hello thomashck,

In my situation, I auto-trade hundreds of US. stock with PortfolioTrader via IB, sometimes it comes across that some stocks can't be traded due to some reasons like: can't be short, price violation... then the order is rejected by the broker and after X times rejected order it stop auto-trading.
I can understand the stocks can't be traded due to order rejected but I still want to trade the others in my portfolio list with auto-trading.
After read some posts about that I have some ideas in my head:

An order rejection alert via email/sms.http://www.multicharts.com/discussion/v ... =5&t=47400
It seems use too many cpu resources, but if break it with Check/minute, that will be better. Then go to PortfolioTrader pause the stock which the order be rejected. It's not an ideal way to solve this issue, it should have better way for it.

Is there anyone can share more ideas. Any idea will be highly appreciated.
