    Age of Position in Bars

    What's the best approach for getting the age of a Position in bars.


    If this is just a matter of tracking everything via OnPositionUpdate I can do that and record the CurrentBar at the time the Position is created. But is there a simpler way I'm missing?

    Hello BarzTrading,

    Thanks for your message.

    You may consider using BarsSinceEntryExecution and/or BarsSinceExitExecution for this task.

    Code:
    protected override void OnBarUpdate()
    { 
      if (CurrentBar < BarsRequiredToTrade) 
          return; 
     
      // Only enter if at least 10 bars has passed since our last exit or if we have never traded yet
      if ((BarsSinceExitExecution() > 10 || BarsSinceExitExecution() == -1) && CrossAbove(SMA(10), SMA(20), 1))
          EnterLong();
    }

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

      You have a typo Jim:
      if ((BarsSinceExitExecution() > 10 || BarsSinceExitExecution() == -1)

        Thanks eDanny,

        Maybe the rest of the text was cut off by the browser or code block?

        The full line reads:

        if ((BarsSinceExitExecution() > 10 || BarsSinceExitExecution() == -1) && CrossAbove(SMA(10), SMA(20), 1))
