limit orders are not working

Postby Erik Pepping » 10 Dec 2010

I try to enter a limit order with my Study :
sellshort ("SEL") next bar at low - 5 limit;

however it seems to be a mrket order or send at low.?

Is this supposed to work ?

because your sell order is below the market, that is why it was filled immediately.

Stop-Limit orders are not supported yet.

Yes it will be supported in MultiCharts 7. The stop limit orders are done. BTW it is available in the released pre-alpha.

Andrew,

How can I incorporate Stop-Limit order into a strategy code (in pre-apha)?
