Here is my code:

 
Code
Inputs: 
	PriceL(Low),
	LeftStrengthL(3), 
	RightStrengthL(3),
	PriceH(High),
	LeftStrengthH(3), 
	RightStrengthH(3);
	
Variable:
	PivotL(0), PivotH(0), 
	SMA(0), 
	BuyFlag3(false),	
	N(1), MP(0);
	
MP = MarketPosition;

SMA = Average(C,50);


if PivotHighVSBar( 1, PriceH, LeftStrengthH, RightStrengthH, RightStrengthH + 1 ) <> -1
Then Begin
	PivotH = High[RightStrengthH];
	BuyFlag3 = true;
End;



If MP = 0
Then Begin
	If BuyFlag3 = true //and PivotH > SMA
	Then Begin
		Buy N contract next bar at PivotH + 1 point stop;
		BuyFlag3 = false;
	End;
End;

Setprofittarget(1000*N);
Setstoploss(1000*N)

Thanks a lot,
tradingest

tradingest,

you reset your BuyFlag3 at the time you send your order. This means on the next bar, the order condition wouldn't be fulfilled anymore and therefore your order would be cancelled, unless filled before of course.
The easiest way might be to store the bar number at the time you set the flag to true and when CurrentBar > SavedBarNumber + X (where X would be the number of bars the order should be valid) or the MarketPosition > 0 (which would indicate an entry), you set the buy flag to false.
