Postby 2haerim » 01 Nov 2007

Some people want to plot an aribitrary line into a chart, and generate an order when the chart touches or crosses.

Please add this feature.

You can do that with a strategy currently. The script can read lines drawn on the chart.

Something to look forward to woohoo! You might want to take a look at NT to see how they do it....its a pretty good implementation though could be improved a little. If you could trade off a sloping line (which requires complexity as the order price changes bar to bar) that would be something pretty special.

yes you can, script reads the line parameters (tl_get functions) and places a market order, piece of cake... if you want to emulate a limit order let the price touch your line then move one tick in your favor and hit the market with your market order or trigger off the bid/ask....

What I want is not using script but directly from a chart...

Thank you maxpi for your detail answer. Appreciate it.

However, what I meant was to plot an arbitrary line manually and when the bar touches the order is generated.

I understand it is possible to generate orders from script using tl_getline and so on. But that's not what I wanted.
