Jump to: navigation, search

Returns a numerical value, indicating the time of initial entry into the specified position. The time is indicated in the 24-hour HHmm format, where 1300 = 1:00 PM.

Usage

EntryTime_Checked(PosBack)

Where:

PosBack - a numerical expression, specifying the position:
0 - open position;
1 - one position back (the last position closed);
2 - two positions back, etc.

If PosBack is not specified, a value for the open position will be returned.

Notes

  1. This function can only be used in signals.
  2. If PosBack value is greater that the real number of previously opened positions, EntryTime_Checked will generate an error.

Example

Assign a value, indicating the time that the current position has been entered, to Value1 variable:

Value1=EntryTime_Checked;

Value 1 will equal to 1015 for 10:15 AM

Assign a value, indicating the time that the most recently closed position has been entered, to Value1 variable:

Value1=EntryTime_Checked(1);

Value 1 will equal to 1545 for 3:45 PM
