Bars are wrong on strategy performance (negative bars)
1 Attachment(s)
Getting some strange "bars" results on running a "historical and real-time" performance on a running strategy. See the attached graphic, trade 2 and 3 are wrong. This is a strategy running on 1 minute bars.

This is with the latest beta, downloaded tonight.

Related to the above post, in my strategy I have the following code to wait 15 bars before entering a trade after exit. This seems to work fine in real time, but in back testing it doesn't. Using the following in my multi period strategy:

&& (BarsSinceExit(0,"ShortLimit", 0) > 15 || BarsSinceExit(0,"ShortLimit", 0) == -1 )

If you look at trades 7 and 8, trade 8 entered before trade 7 closed, and when I do a right-click chart of trade 7, it doesn't appear, only trade 8. See attached chart.

Hmm. Could you send me a simple as possible strategy that highlights the issues you are experiencing? I would like to run some tests based on your environment. Thanks for the help.
