Default Exit/entry Position reversed

Hi!
I discovered now (after days of attempts) that nt7 in this script confuse the exit signal with entry...
So, like in image attached I have target that close position 1 tick above new entry signal (for the short side), but ninja seems reverse 2 signals in backtest, in a nonsense way..also for long.
this caused me a lot of problem, because when new position is open the opposite entry order is not null and make issues in stop and target placement...
I use unmanaged approach.
can you help me??

Hello kantkant2,

Thanks for your posts.

For debugging, are you using print statements to clarify what is happening in your script? If not that is the best place to start and here is a link to our debugging tips: https://ninjatrader.com/support/foru...ead.php?t=3418

Hello kantkant2,

Thanks for your reply.

The managed approach uses the signal names to tie the visual and reporting with the signal names. In the unmanaged approach the signal names are not used to tie entry/exit together so your strategy is subject to first in first out processing.

You might consider using separate strategies if multiple positions will be taken on the instrument and account, in this way you can view the strategy performance on the chart and in the strategy performance windows to see the strategy entry/exits.

Ok thanks, but it is a big problem.....
I use unmanaged to avoid 2 separate strategies...
So, in real time it should not occur, if I understand well...
And also, first in first out logic is respected when my target fills BEFORE my new entry, and I don't know why thi happens...
Sorry, but is more than a week that I am tyring to solve this...
Sorry for my english..

Hello kantkant2,

Thanks for your reply.

Can you advise if your observations are based on Historical data only or do you see this on real-time as well?
