    Profit target/stop loss not working correctly

    New to NT8. I have a strategy that enters the trade correctly, but I have lots of issues when the trades needs to exit. I just want to be able to take profits at X and stop losses at Y. When I try to setup profit targets/stop losses in the Strategy Builder, it doesn't work as I expect. Just would like to know how to properly setup those. I can provide what I have/give examples if needed. Any help is appreciated.

    Hello Lumbeezl,
    Thanks for your post.

    Which order entry methods are you using for your stop loss and profit targets? (ie. SetStopLoss(), ExitShortStopMarket(), etc.)

    Where in your script are these methods located? (ie. OnBarUpdate(), OnStateChange() State.Configure , etc.)

    How are you testing this strategy? (ie. Strategy Analyzer, Market Replay, Live testing, etc)

      So the functions used are SetStopLoss() and SetProfitTarget(). They are located in State.Configure. I am testing using Strategy Analyzer and Live Testing on the Sim101 account.

        How are you currently setting the values for the stop loss and profit target? And what values are you generally using?

        What results are you seeing that are unexpected?

        Are there any errors on the 'Log' tab of your Control Center when you run the strategy?

          I was able to finally find some help in some older posts, but I did have to open NinjaScript to edit the strategy. The Strategy Builder wasn't doing it correctly.
