    Hi folks, looking for code for second step  of below logic, if someone could help please:

    1. Place a stop order (BUY amount LOT AT 25 stop)
    2. If order is not filled in next three candles or within next 45 minutes, cancel this stop order


    Thanks in advance, kaq

    ProOrder’s logic is the other way round.

    Pending orders ALWAYS expire each bar, so you need to place them again each new bar if your entry conditions are still valid.

    When conditions are no more valid, just don’t place them.

    Hi Kaq,

    Roberto is right. If you want an entry signal to last for 3 candles you can do something like that:

    Thanks both.

    My strategy is, if current candle closes bullish engulfing, place a pending stop order two points above the closing candle, and wait for next three candles to see if order gets fulfilled else cancel pending order.

    Reading what has been explained above, looks like it is not possible…or is it?

    I think is posible, just change the MARKET order for “BUY AT CLOSE+2 STOP”
