    Method execution

    I have a custom strategy that submits a market order in the OnBarUpdate method. Once the market order has been submitted, I want to suspend the OnBarUpdate method until the OnExecution method for that market order has processed. I tried using a "While" loop conditioned on a global variable that is set in OnExecution, but it never left the loop (presumably because the OnExecution method had not processed).

    Any suggestions?

    Hello Elevator2TheTop,

    Thanks for opening the thread.

    OnBarUpdate() is an event driven method that occurs on the completion of each bar, or for each incoming tick. When an order method is met, the actual order is not submitted until OnBarUpdate() completes. It would not be advised to use a loop to wait for another event as this can cause a deadlock.

    Instead, I would suggest to set a bool to false once your entry condition becomes true so you can restrict actions in OnBarUpdate(). Once the OnExecution() occurs for that trade, you can set that bool to true to allow execution.

    If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
