    Use indicator triggers in the strategy

    I want to start "small" might be enough for you to push me in the right direction.

    My problem is that I get several more triggers from the indicator than it supposed to give.
    Explanation:
    I have a custom indicator. If gives some triggers couple of times a day.
    I have defined a public variable array that stores the triggers. Indicator works and the print command shows exactly the time and details of the true triggers.
    Now I have created an empty strategy. The only thing it has at the moment is OnBarUpdate it waits for the trigger of the indicator and prints a message with the data. (Bar number,time etc)
    This is the bases for the strategy.
    . In the display window I see the print lines from the strategy as well as from the indicator. But I get more lines from the strategy then the indicator.
    At times of day where there are no indicator triggers.

    Where to look?

    Hello dadarara,

    I would suggest adding print statements to check whether your conditions are becoming true. I’ve provided a link to a youtube video which covers an example of using prints to understand behavior:

    I’ve provided a link covering debugging which you may find helpful.

      I did all that. I have print commands in all places. That's the funny part. In the indicator I get all true triggers and I see the print lines showing that. But in the strategy print lines I get extra triggers. I hope you understand. The strategy doesn't do anything yet. It simply prints out the triggers it gets from the indicator. It looks like it prints triggers that are not received from indicator.
