    Simple Entry for Testing

    I'm just getting started creating strategies. I was trying to write an entry that would get hit very quickly to help speed up my learning curve. That way I can play with writing profit target and stop loss code and get an idea of what is happening. The entry code I wrote for a Long is
    close[0] > close[1]
    Which I read as if the current close is greater than the previous close, then I have LongEntry().
    Shouldn't this get filled almost immediately after closing a position?

    Thanks, Tim

    Tim, welcome to our forums - it would trigger immediately for an uptick in realtime if you used the strategy with CalculateOnBarClose = false -

    http://www.ninjatrader-support.com/H...BarClose1.html

    In backtesting this is always set to 'true', as the indicator formation is not known, thus the condition would generate a long entry for each up bar according to your definition.
