Help setting this code for data2 dollar % trail

Postby willwill7 » 13 Dec 2008

This code is not picking up on data2, which is set at 1 tic. I've tried several other ways, but can't seem to make it work. Any help much appreciated.

Thank you!


Inputs:
DLRS(1000), { Opt 500/1000/10 }
PCT(7); { Opt 7/20/.1 }

Variables: MP2(0);
MP2 = Marketposition data2;

If MP2 = -1 then begin
setstopposition data2;
setpercenttrailing(DLRS data2, PCT data2);
End;

If MP2 = 1 then begin
setstopposition data2;
setpercenttrailing(DLRS data2, PCT data2);
End;

Thank TJ -

How about back testing using data2?

Hi willwill7,

Strategies can reference values coming from price series other than data1. However, orders can only be generated on data1 (both for auto trading and backtesting).

Regards.
