I am new to EasyLanguage, I have some logic that determines when to long (as below), and would like to also place the entry price at that bar (since order label cannot be dynamic).

However, the text is placed on every bar after the condition is true, which makes me really puzzled

Order is not entered multiple times though.

Is that because my max position is 1?

Or somehow because Text_New is a series function?

Sorry if this sounds very primitive.


if Close crosses over UpperBand then
Buy ( "SVE Vol LE" ) next bar market ;
Value2 = Text_New(Date, Time, Low, NumToStr(EntryPrice, 0));

Hi ivanyu,

this is because the way your code is currently you allow for text printing on every bar. The condition is only valid for the long entry.
You need to slightly modify your code to

if Close crosses over UpperBand then begin
Buy ( "SVE Vol LE" ) next bar market ;
Value2 = Text_New(Date, Time, Low, NumToStr(EntryPrice, 0));
You will probably notice two things now:
1. the text will be printed every time the Close crosses over the Upperband. Depending on how many entries you allow in the same position that could mean more text than entries.
2. The text might not reflect the correct entry price as it is drawn when the order is send (meaning at this moment there is no way to know the exact entry price already).

To overcome both issues you could simply move the text drawing to another condition, which could either be a change in the Marketposition or a change in the number of shares/contracts that are currently open.
