    Strategy - Sending Too Many Multiple Emails because of multiple buy signals

    Currently have a strategy that I am running which is NOT calculated on the close of a bar. The strategy is working perfect however it is sending too many buy signals and email notifications. I just need it to send ONE email notification when a buy signal is reached. And one email notification after it closes. Is there anyway to program the strategy where the next buy signal can not be given until the previous trade closes?

    Hello seahawk13,

    Thanks for your reply.

    You would need to add conditions to your entry conditions that prevent you from placing the orders until you are flat. You would use a combination of bool logic to accomplish this. One bool condition to check would be the MarketPosition. You can be either long, short or flat and this you can test against. In addition you would use bools that you create and set based on the conditions, for example use a bool called doitonce that you would initialize to true and then set false and true as needed.

    For example:

    if (your conditions for entry && Position.MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Flat && doitonce)
    {
    // entry logic here
    // send mail here
    doitonce = false; // set to false to prevent re-entry of this block before Position is updated
    }

    Later in your code you would need to reset doitonce = true; when you wish to again place an order.

    Another method to consider is BarsSinceExit().
