So...
Within all 10-min bars of a given hour (10:10-11:00), you want to see a trendline showing the High and Low of the previous hour (09:10-10:00).
Correct?

The way I envision it is that the code will determine how many bars in the given time frame make up an hour, and then it will iterate through the bars to find the highest high and lowest low. That way the hourly code can work in different time scales, be it 1 min, 5 min, 10 min or 15 min...

This is not related any more to the initial subject of this thread ("sell this bar").

So I suggest that you post this new request in the thread

I also suggest that, in the other thread, you use a brief description as your request. Not too far from:

Quoting 
Within all 10-min bars of a given hour (10:10-11:00), I would like to see a trendline showing the High and Low of the previous hour (09:10-10:00).

Hi, I discovered a problem with the current implementation.

It is possible for there to be more than one entry in a given bar, that means that if in a given hourly bar, the code enters a trade and exits the trade at target, and its still moving up, it can enter the trade again. I would like the code to enter trades max 1 time per bar.

Should we add another condition to the if statement below in the code, where it can only execute an entry if price is within a certain range also?

 
Code
if MarketPosition = 0 and EnterLong then begin
	Buy ("Enter Long") 300 Shares next Bar at LongEntryPrice stop;
end;

Another idea might be to identify the current bar time, and make sure it wont enter again on the same bar?

Here is the chart where I point out the problem, and the code...



(I commented out the short entries because I want to make sure longs work first)

Code:

 
Code
Inputs:
	Target1 (50),
  	Target2(100),
  	Target3(200),
  	StopSize(75),
  	BuyGap(.20),
  	BE2(1) , // 0=false, 1 = true
  	BE3(1); // 0=false, 1 = true
  	
 Variables:
 	EnterLong	( false ),
	LongEntryPrice ( 0 ),
	ShortEntryPrice ( 0 ),
   	TickSize (MinMove/PriceScale),
  	t1 (target1*TickSize),
  	t2 (target2*TickSize),
  	t3 (target3*TickSize),
  	st1 (0),
  	st2 (0),
  	st3 (0);
 

[IntrabarOrderGeneration = true]

if ( BarStatus(1) = 2 ) then begin 
	EnterLong = ( Low >= Low[1] and High >= High[1] );
	LongEntryPrice = High;
	ShortEntryPrice = Low;
end;

if MarketPosition = 0 and EnterLong then begin
	Buy ("Enter Long") 300 Shares next Bar at LongEntryPrice stop;
	//SellShort("Enter Short") 300  Shares Next Bar at (ShortEntryPrice) stop;
end;


//Label # Shares below each bar
Value1 = Text_New(Date, Time, Low-(2), NumToStr(CurrentShares/100, 0));
Text_SetColor(Value1, Blue);
Text_SetSize(Value1, 9);


if MarketPosition = 1 then begin

 	st1 = EntryPrice - (stopsize * TickSize);
 	st2 = iff(BE2 = 1, EntryPrice, EntryPrice-(stopsize * TickSize));
 	st3 = iff(BE3 = 1, EntryPrice, EntryPrice-(stopsize * TickSize));

	if CurrentShares = 100 then begin
		Sell("Exit L300-CS100 Target") 100 Shares next Bar at (EntryPrice + t3) Limit;
		Sell("Exit L300-CS100 Stop") 100 Shares next Bar at st3 Stop;
	end;
	
	if CurrentShares = 200 then begin
   		Sell("Exit L200-CS200 Target") 100 Shares Next Bar at (EntryPrice + t2) Limit;
   		Sell("Exit L200-CS200 Stop") 100 Shares Next Bar at st2 Stop;	
   		Sell("Exit L300-CS200 Target") 100 Shares Next Bar at (EntryPrice + t3) Limit;
   		Sell("Exit L300-CS200 Stop") 100 Shares Next Bar at st3 Stop;	
   	end;
   	
   	if CurrentShares = 300 then begin
   		Sell("Exit L100-CS300 Target") 100 Shares Next Bar at (EntryPrice + t1) Limit;
   		Sell("Exit L100-CS300 Stop") 100 Shares Next Bar at st1 Stop;	
   		Sell("Exit L200-CS300 Target") 100 Shares Next Bar at (EntryPrice + t2) Limit;
   		Sell("Exit L200-CS300 Stop") 100 Shares Next Bar at st2 Stop;	
   		Sell("Exit L300-CS300 Target") 100 Shares Next Bar at (EntryPrice + t3) Limit;
   		Sell("Exit L300-CS300 Stop") 100 Shares Next Bar at st3 Stop;
   	end;
	
end;


if MarketPosition = -1 then begin

 	st1 = EntryPrice + (stopsize * TickSize);
 	st2 = iff(BE2 = 1, EntryPrice, EntryPrice+(stopsize * TickSize));
 	st3 = iff(BE3 = 1, EntryPrice, EntryPrice+(stopsize * TickSize));

	if CurrentShares = 100 then begin
		BuyToCover("Exit S300-CS100 Target") 100 Shares next Bar at (EntryPrice - t3) Limit;
		BuyToCover("Exit S300-CS100 Stop") 100 Shares next Bar at st3 Stop;
	end;
	
	if CurrentShares = 200 then begin
   		BuyToCover("Exit S200-CS200 Target") 100 Shares Next Bar at (EntryPrice - t2) Limit;
   		BuyToCover("Exit S200-CS200 Stop") 100 Shares Next Bar at st2 Stop;	
   		BuyToCover("Exit S300-CS200 Target") 100 Shares Next Bar at (EntryPrice - t3) Limit;
   		BuyToCover("Exit S300-CS200 Stop") 100 Shares Next Bar at st3 Stop;	
   	end;
   	
   	if CurrentShares = 300 then begin
   		BuyToCover("Exit S100-CS300 Target") 100 Shares Next Bar at (EntryPrice - t1) Limit;
   		BuyToCover("Exit S100-CS300 Stop") 100 Shares Next Bar at st1 Stop;	
   		BuyToCover("Exit S200-CS300 Target") 100 Shares Next Bar at (EntryPrice - t2) Limit;
   		BuyToCover("Exit S200-CS300 Stop") 100 Shares Next Bar at st2 Stop;	
   		BuyToCover("Exit S300-CS300 Target") 100 Shares Next Bar at (EntryPrice - t3) Limit;
   		BuyToCover("Exit S300-CS300 Stop") 100 Shares Next Bar at st3 Stop;
   	end;
	
end;

you need to create a time-line, and step your code through the time-line to make sure all the angles are covered.
