SE and LE signals. on the same instru at the same time?

Postby iceman » 15 May 2011

I tried running an LE and a SE signal on the same instrument at the same time. But once one of the signals was triggered ( say LE), then the system would not take a SE signal, if the there was still an existing long position. Is there a way to overcome this?

Thanks

Ron

Dear Ron,

SE stands for Short Entry, and LE stands for Long Entry. They are 'meant' to be used together, in a way, since they would reverse the position once the conditions in the code are met. These are purely informational parts of the signal name, which indicate what it's supposed to do.

However, you will need to be a lot more specific about what you are doing to get any meaningful assistance. Are these built-in signals or did you create them? You can also open the script, to see what the conditions are, and then look on the chart to see if they have been met. If you are autotrading, check the logs for the Order and Position Tracker - maybe your orders are getting rejected.
