Help! My program will not stop trading for the DAY even thou I set a maximum loss limit for the day.
What is wrong with my code?

if Date <> Date [1] then
PrevNetProfit = NetProfit;
StopTrading = false;

if NetProfit >= PrevNetProfit + 100 then StopTrading = true;

if Date <> Date [1] then
PrevNetLoss = GrossLoss;
StopTrading = false;

if GrossLoss >= PrevNetLoss + 65 then StopTrading = true;

when posting code, please wrap the code tags around it, it makes reading things a lot easier.
GrossLoss returns a negative number, so the condition
if GrossLoss >= PrevNetLoss + 65 then StopTrading = true;
can never become true.
