    Target prices Work in Back Test but fail on simulator

    I have a system that uses the swing high and swing low to calculate fib extension as my target prices, I use 5 Fib numbers to determine my target prices. This works perfectly on multi lot trades for scaling out of positions on the back tests, but when I trade on live data with the simulator, the targets seem to all by pile up on top of each other and all the lots exit just as fast as they executed, the targets print labels so I can see that each target is hit in a fraction of a second, for some reason they do not go to their intended or extended price level. Any Ideas? It seems that if this works on back testing, it would work on live data.

    We would need to see some code to get an idea what you are doing. Could paste in something?

      I hope this is enough info... If you need more let me know..

        I have some charts here that display a visual of how it should look and what is happening...

            metal trader,

            Please try printing out your Swing values for your stops in realtime. Remember, Swing is an indicator that comes back in time and replots itself. This makes it very hard to use in a system going forward.
