OpenPositionProfit vs PositionProfit

Postby smashthepound » 27 Jul 2010

Besides the ability to adress the ProfitLoss of previous positions is there any difference between

OpenPositionProfit and
PositionProfit(0) ????

E.g. time of availability of information inside a bar or at the close of a bar?

Furthermore how many previous positions can be referenced by PositionProfit? According to TS documentation this is limited to 10. Is it the same for MC or as always does MC provide greater flexility ?????????

regards

Tobias

Dear Tobias,

There are no such limitations in MultiCharts. You can reference as many closed positions as you have.

There is no difference between OpenPositionProfit and PositionProfit(0). They return the same values.

Note: The behavior of PositionProfit has been changed in MultiCharts 8.7 Beta 1. Since that version (available since 04/31/2013) PositionProfit returns the value for the closed trades only.
