    indicator works but can't generate orders in strategy

    Hi, this custom candle pattern indicator prints signals properly, but when inserted into a strategy via the strategy builder (looking for a test value of "1"), no orders are generated. Can you spot any flaws? I tried using NT's bullish engulfing the same way and that works fine. Here's the code below. The third section was something one of you gave me to get the indicator to hide the false test visuals on the chart

    protected override void OnBarUpdate()
    {
    if(CurrentBar < BarsAgo + 1)
    return;

    Values[0][BarsAgo] = (Close[BarsAgo] > High[(BarsAgo + 1)]) && (Low[BarsAgo] > Low[(BarsAgo + 1)]) && (Close[BarsAgo] > Open[(BarsAgo)]) && (Open[BarsAgo + 1] > Close[(BarsAgo + 1)])? (Low[BarsAgo] - (5 * TickSize)) : (Close[BarsAgo] - (0 * TickSize));


    if(!(Close[BarsAgo] > Close[(BarsAgo + 1)]))
    PlotBrushes[0][BarsAgo] = Brushes.Transparent;

    }

    Hello trader3000a,

    Is the indicator setting a Values[0] on the current bar?

    Print the time of the bar and the value from the indicator in the strategy. Does this show the expected value?
    Please save the output to a text file and include this with your next reply.

    Below is a link to a forum post on using prints to understand behavior. Please watch the video 'Debugging using prints with the Strategy Builder'.
