strategy command question

Postby Thomas Mann » 09 Dec 2008

Hi,
Could someone explain how the two auto trading commands work listed below. I tried to use them but did not see the trigger or stop hit at the price I specified when it should have.
Thanks

SetProfitTarget(50);
SetStopLoss(75);

Hi Thomas,

What MC version are you talking about? Could you please check the following settings for this symbol in QuoteManager and make sure that they are correct:

1. Price Scale
2. Min. Movement
3. Big Point Value

Regards.

make sure you do not put the statements in a condition.

They must be re-evaluated every tick.
