    using ExitLongStop

    For backtesting purposes. Im looking to set a stop at the entry price once the position has moved > .5 into profit. Do I have something incorrect below? Its stopping out way above the entry price.

    stopPrice = Position.AvgPrice


    if ((BarsInProgress == 1)&& (Position.MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Long)
    && Closes[1][0] > Position.AvgPrice + .5)
    {
    ExitLongStop(1, true, 200 , stopPrice, "TrailStop", "EnterLong");
    }

    Hi Delta007,

    Thanks for your post.

    I recommend you add TraceOrders = true; to the Intialize() part of the script so we can see what price the order is being set to.

    Also print the values of ("Closes[1][0]: "+Closes[1][0]+" > "+(Position.AvgPrice + .5)) so we can see what is triggering the condition.

    The prints will go to the Output window. (Tools -> Output Window...)
    Please post the output to your next post.

    Is the order filling at the top or bottom of the bar?

    Is the backtest in the Strategy Analyzer? (If so, what fill type are you using?)
