Is it possible to control AT by power language?

Postby TW » 16 Mar 2010

Is there any function or method of power language to control auto trading status to be disable or enable?

Thank you!

No. But I also would like this feature. This would for example be good to turn auto-trading on / off basing on equity curve momentum.

Yeah, I really need this for equity curve momentum. I hope TSS team could provide this function in next version.

In order to do this currently in EasyLanguage, you would need to track your own simulated equity curve in memory (keeping track of what your fills would be according to whatever your fill assumptions are), then take or not take the "real" trades based on this.

I think a workaround could be working with global variables, with pushpop.dll.
You can setup 2 charts with the same system.
Chart 1 stores the equity line in the global variable. This chart is not for autotrading, only for the equitycurve.
in chart 2 you can access it, calculate what you want and do trading or not.

but iam not sure what happens when charts are refreshed.
chart 1 should be refresht first.... maybee a little bit to tricky :-)
