Hi,

In Mikes Easylanguage video, he shows the following code:

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;

But the problem is, that it cant execute the sales on the current bar. So how can I make it so it uses "this bar" instead of "next bar"?

Thanks in advance.

you have to declare [intrabarordergeneration = true] at the beginning of your code

It is obvious for @Bimi, but I prefer to add this comment for the OP.

With the above instruction, the trade will be triggered the first time the condition is met within the bar. Possibly in the middle of the bar or even at the first tick.

It is not a "buy at close".

Ok I did that, but i still have a problem, I want to enter using next bar, but possibly exit this bar. So I changed the code, and noticed that buy 100 shares next bar at the high of the current bar wont trigger a buy ever....

Here is the code

[intrabarordergeneration = true]

If Low > Low[1] and High > High[1] then begin
if barstatus(1) = 2 then Buy ("Enter Long") 300 Shares Next Bar At (High) stop;

end;

....
....
....

if CurrentShares = 100 then begin
Sell("Exit L300-CS100 Target") 100 Shares next Bar at (EntryPrice) Limit;
Sell("Exit L300-CS100 Stop") 100 Shares next Bar at st3 Stop;
end;

oops, sorry after running the code, here is the problem..

It seems that it can enter on the next bar, but then it only exits 100 shares max per bar, i am not sure why...

example code:



[IntrabarOrderGeneration = true]
if MarketPosition = 0 and barstatus(1) = 2 and Low > Low[1] and High > High[1] then begin

Print("This is the closing tick of the bar.");
print ("this is buyTrigger = "+ NumToStr(buyTrigger ,0));
print ("timea = " + NumToStr(Time,0));


Buy ("Enter Long") 300 Shares Next Bar At high stop;


end;





// manage open orders

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));

print ("this is ticksize = "+ NumToStr(ticksize ,2));
print ("this is enter = "+ NumToStr(entryprice ,2));
print ("this is stop = "+ NumToStr(st1 ,2));
print ("this is stopsize = "+ NumToStr(stopsize ,2));

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;

In your the code posted above, we cannot see how t1, t2 and t3 are calculated. Are they inputs or calculated one way or another?

Here is the code, in its entirety. I commented out shorting because I am wanting to get the long to work first...

smav (0),
emav (0),
hmav(0),
t1 (target1*TickSize),
t2 (target2*TickSize),
t3 (target3*TickSize),
st1 (0),
st2 (0),
st3 (0),
buyTrigger(0);


[IntrabarOrderGeneration = true]


// open new positions


if MarketPosition = 0 and barstatus(1) = 2 and Low > Low[1] and High > High[1] then begin
//and time>1000 and (time <1600)
Print("This is the closing tick of the bar.");
print ("this is buyTrigger = "+ NumToStr(buyTrigger ,0));
print ("timea = " + NumToStr(Time,0));


Buy ("Enter Long") 300 Shares Next Bar At high stop;

//SellShort("Enter Short") 300 Shares Next Bar at (Low-buypoint) stop;




end;





// manage open orders

if MarketPosition = 1 then begin
