Strategy not working for certain symbols

Postby designer01 » 19 Nov 2012

I have the standard Percent stop loss script (see code below) it works for most symbols but it sends the exit order in Symbol EURUSD at the entry price and not at the inputed percentage stoploss price. It works ok for other symbols like AUDUSD etc. Any ideas what may cause this?
Thanks

Code: Select all

inputs: StopLossPct( .05 ) ;                               

SetStopShare ;
if MarketPosition = 1 then
   SetStopLoss( EntryPrice * StopLossPct )
else
   Sell ( "PctStopLX-eb" ) next bar at Close * ( 1 - StopLossPct ) stop ;

this answer is not related to your calculation question...

ps. you don't need "MarketPosition=1" because SetStopLoss orders will only be sent if you have a position.
