I’ve not looked at financials for a while but have decided to test out some ideas again.
Last time I looked it wasn’t possible to execute trades in real time, but always ‘next bar open’. Having fired up it appears to still be the same? So if you want to trade a new bar high / low it will trade on next bar open assuming the prior bar high / low was taken out. Obviously not how you would trade this in real time. This can work for daily strategies since you can reference daily bars, but wouldn’t work for lower time frames.
If someone says this is possible could they post a short code snippet to show my how to get it to execute please?
trade a new bar high / low it will trade on next bar
New bar high / low would be same as previous bar high / low apart from a few miliseconds price movement?
Also what time frame are you trading / wanting to trade? Say for example 5 min TF then you can execute the trade on a 1 sec TF if you want so the instant (1 sec) the 5 min TF condition is met then the trade is triggered the very next 1 second.
