    Coding a Makert On Close Order

    I am developing a strategy that places short orders at the open and having trouble with using the wizrd to program the orders to place when time=9:29am. I am an experienced trader but I have no coding experience. I would like to code into my strategy an automatic cover on market close or at 3:55. It is important that the stocks are shorted and covered at the closest time possible. Any coding suggestions?

    Hi vt2009,

    Thank you for your note.

    What issues are you having with the entry time filter?

    You may need to be a little more liberal with the time filter, instead of Time == 9:29am, maybe something like Time >= 9:29 and Time <= 9:31

    When you apply a strategy, you will have the option to "Exit on close" with an option for how far away from the close, "Exit on close seconds"

      So I have that in the wizard screen, the next step is coding in a variable for how many shares to short. I would like and even dollar ratio between 2 stocks so I guess the higher value one/lesser value one= ratio(variable). Then short 1000 of the higher price stock and 1000x the variable of the lower priced one.

        Hi vt2009,

        To have the code calculate this automatically, you will need to access the price of different instruments in a multi-instrument series.
