    Give Stop Loss & Profit Target orders names

    Hi

    Want to be able to tie the stop loss orders & profit target orders I'm setting for 2 different sell or buy positions, to the actual positions. To do this I think I need to name the actual stop loss orders & profit target orders

    As an example I'm using the below to create stops & targets

    Code:
    SetProfitTarget(@"Buy_1", CalculationMode.Ticks, (ATR1[0]*1.5)/TickSize);
    //SetProfitTarget(@"Buy_2", CalculationMode.Ticks, (ATR1[0]*3)/TickSize);
    SetStopLoss(@"Buy_1", CalculationMode.Ticks, (ATR1[0]*1.5)/TickSize, false);
    SetStopLoss(@"Buy_2", CalculationMode.Ticks, (ATR1[0]*1.5)/TickSize, false);
    However when the strategy has run, the orders are just named 'stop loss' or 'profit target'

    Is there a way to name them so I can link which was for which position as per the above?

    Thanks

    Hi Gav_G,
    Try to add the name of your TP/SL as illustrated below.

    SetProfitTarget(@"Buy_1", CalculationMode.Ticks, (ATR1[0]*1.5)/TickSize, YOURNAME1)
    SetStopLoss(@"Buy_1", CalculationMode.Ticks, (ATR1[0]*1.5)/TickSize, YOURNAME1, false);
    SetStopLoss(@"Buy_2", CalculationMode.Ticks, (ATR1[0]*1.5)/TickSize, YOURNAME2, false);

      Hello Gav_G,

      When placing multiple entry orders that have separate exit orders, the entries will need unique signal names and the exits will need to be using the fromEntrySignal of the entry.

      Also, the EntryHandling will need to be set to UniqueEntries or EntriesPerDirection will need to be set to 2.
