    Exiting a long order never fires

    Hi there, I'm having a hard time exiting an order. I get into the order as:

    SetStopLoss(CalculationMode.Ticks, 13);
    SetProfitTarget(CalculationMode.Ticks, 12);
    entryOrder = EnterLongLimit(0, true, 1, Close[0],, "MyStrat");

    then, I've been attempting to exit, trying any one of these statements:

    ExitLong();
    ExitLong(1);
    ExitLong("MyStrat");
    ExitLongLimit(GetCurrentBid());
    ExitLongLimit(GetCurrentBid(), "MyStrat");
    ExitLongLimit(1, GetCurrentBid(), "MyStrat", "MyStrat");

    But testing each of these Exit statements, they all fail to get me out of the order. Obviously, I'm missing some way to connect the ExitLong, to the entry.

    How to do? Thanks.

    You enter with the Advanced Order Handling Concepts. Can you try the exit with the Advanced Order Handling Concept?

    Well, just an idea. I haven't gone down this path.


    The following method variation is for experienced programmers who fully understand Advanced Order Handling concepts.
    *
    EnterLongLimit(int barsInProgressIndex, bool liveUntilCancelled, int quantity, double limitPrice, string signalName)

    ExitLong(int barsInProgressIndex, int quantity, string signalName, string fromEntrySignal)

      Hello timmbbo,

      Thank you for your note.

      I have provided three examples which demonstrate how to exit a specific position through assigning a signal name to the entry order and passing that signal name to the exit order.

      I would expect your ExitLong(); method to exit the position.

      When you run the strategy are you seeing any errors on the log tab?

      I look forward to your reply.
