Dose using the intrabar order generation require the use of the intrabapersist function in the code or not ?

Also , is this not available in my version some other way ?

I have your latest Beta you asked me to d/l

the order triggers @ the end of the bar although Im sitting in front of this and seeing it should generate unlimited entry/exits as the bar fluctuates ..

still what it dose is check if the condition was met intrabar and will trigger the trade end of bar even if the condition is not met by then,.

Do you call this intrabar order generation ?

attached you can find the result of an intrabar order

the upper indicator visually shows the threshold +1 / -1 which generate the orders.

So the buy signals you see wer the results of the fluctuation of the bar downwards and the indicator did go down through the -1 threshold.

but, BUT!! there is a big diff getting those fills intrabar @ the lower end of the bar tail were they triggered compared to receiving them @ the end of this bar .. you can imagine ..

also due to that fact , the rotation upwards the following bar did not hit the position-profit-target ...

so when you say intrabar do you mean that MC well "hold" the trigger intrabar and fill END of BAR ?

thanks

Itai,
MC IOG works properly. You simply should select "Allow unlimited entries and exits per bar". By default each signal can generate only once entry per bar.
