My strategy is based on range bar chart. How can I close a position at a specific time, such as 10 minutes before market close, in which the range bar may not completed at that specific time? I have tried turning on the intrabarordergeneration and added a time chart as subchart as data 2, but still no luck.

Appreciate with your help.

Thanks

ewind,

you don't need a second datastream, but it does require intrabar order generation. For historical exits you can use the bar tick by tick timestamp that you can access, but for realtime exits you'll have to use your computer clock.

Dear ABCTG,

I am new to easy language therefore I hope you don't mind my stupid questions.

Historical Exits: -> Would you elaborate how to access the tick timestamp?
Realtime Exits: -> I guess I can use currentTime instead of time in my coding. However, is that mean I have to switch currentTime/Time between backtest/SA?

Here is how the code look like for single datastream:

condition1 = Time >= CalcTime(SessionEndTime, MinBeforeClose ) and Time < SessionEndTime;

if condition1 then
if marketposition(0) = -1 then
buytocover next bar at market
else if marketposition(0) = 1 then
sell next bar at market;


Thank you very much.

ewind,

check out this link:

You can let the code detect if it's currently historical data or realtime data. Check out LastbarOnchart and airealtimecalc for example to accomplish this.

Thanks ABCTG. After further study, I find that my original code works for real time exit, but the actually exit time is different from what it shown in performance report.

For historical exit, I turned on the "Enable access to intra-bar time...", it seems returning what I expected (sometime still close session in next day, very strange), although it take much much longer to complete the back-test.

Thank you very much
