Default Orders Sent then Immediately Cancelled on Multi TF

Hi, Having progressed my strategy from a single timeframe to a multi time I am having a problem when placing orders.

The Orders are sent to the order manager and then immediately cancelled. I can only assume it has something to do with the Multi TF code I have added.

Although I have referred to it as "Multi Timeframe" I am actually using range bars of two periods (20 and 50 Range) Tick on Forex.

Code is Below:

Code:
 protected override void Initialize()
        {
            
            SetProfitTarget("DonLa", CalculationMode.Ticks, WT1L);
            SetProfitTarget("DonSa", CalculationMode.Ticks, WT1S);
            ExitOnClose = false;
            CalculateOnBarClose = false;
            ClearOutputWindow();
            Add(PeriodType.Range,50); //Added Second Time-Frame to Collect Data for Trend - Array Index is 1
        }

        /// <summary>
        /// Called on each bar update event (incoming tick)
        /// </summary>
        protected override void OnBarUpdate()
        {
            if (FirstTickOfBar)
            {
                trend = SMA(BarsArray[1],10)[0]; // Calculate the Trend
                Print(Instrument.FullName+":"+Position.MarketPosition+":"+Time);
                Print("Trend: "+trend);    
                    //Print(Bars.BarsSinceSession+":"+Time);
                    // MA Entry Long
                    if (
                        Close[currentBar] > SMA(Close,14)[currentBar]
                        && Close[currentBar] > Open[currentBar]
                        && Close[previousBar] <= SMA(Close,14)[previousBar]
                        && Close[currentBar] >= trend
                        )
                    {                
                        //Print ("MarketPosFromLong:"+Position.MarketPosition+":"+Position.Quantity);
                        if (Position.MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Flat) 
                        {
                            EnterLongLimit(wSingleOrderQuantity, Close[0]+(2*TickSize), "MALa");
                            Print ("EnterLong: "+Instrument.FullName+":"+Position.MarketPosition+":"+Position.AvgPrice+":"+Bars.BarsSinceSession+":"+Time);
                        }
                        //Always put a stop loss in!
                        SetStopLoss(CalculationMode.Ticks, wStopL);
                    }
                    // MA Entry Short
                    if (
                        Close[currentBar] < SMA(Close,14)[currentBar]
                        && Close[currentBar] < Open[currentBar]
                        && Close[previousBar] >= SMA(Close,14)[previousBar]
                        && Close[currentBar] <= trend
                        )
                    {                            
                        //Print ("MarketPosFromShort:"+Position.MarketPosition+":"+Position.Quantity);
                        if (Position.MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Flat) 
                        {
                            EnterShortLimit(wSingleOrderQuantity, Close[0]-(2*TickSize), "DonSa");
                            //EnterShortLimit(wSingleOrderQuantity, Close[0]-(2*TickSize), "DonSb");
                            Print ("EnterShort: "+Instrument.FullName+":"+Position.MarketPosition+":"+Position.AvgPrice+":"+Bars.BarsSinceSession+":"+Time);
                        }
                        //Always put a stop loss in!
                        SetStopLoss(CalculationMode.Ticks, wStopS);
                    }
            }
        }

hodgsos, welcome to the forums - please set those to liveUntiCancelled or resubmit them until filled, otherwise they get cancelled per default on the next OnBarUpdate() call - http://www.ninjatrader-support.com/H...verview36.html

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
