    Disable Strategy on Stop Fill

    I've got a strategy that is using the managed order approach. It enters positions with EnterLong() and EnterShort() and exits them with ExitLong() and ExitShort(). In addition it sets a stop with SetStopLoss().

    In the event that the stop executes, I want to shut down the strategy or at least ensure no more Enter*() methods are called. It appears that the right way to do this is call CloseStrategy(). How can I detect that the stop has executed in the context of the managed approach?

    Hello The Big D,

    I would not recommend using multiple exit orders on the same entry.

    That said, CloseStrategy() would be correct to disable the strategy.

    You could choose to call this in OnOrderUpdate() or OnExecution() when the order.Name is "Stop loss" and the OrderState is .Filled.

      Chelsea,
      Thanks for your response. The code example in your second link is very helpful. Do I have to be concerned that OnOrderUpdate() may be called in the middle of OnBarUpdate()? If so, do I need to protect any variables shared between the two with some sort of mutex?

        Hello The Big D,

        No, calling CloseStrategy() is fine to do from OnOrderUpdate().

        It will close all positions and cancel all orders, even newly submitted ones.
