    Please post your code so we can help find out any issue.

    We need to be able to replicate your trades.

    You also need to tell us:

    • Instrument
    • Time frame used

    Your code doesn’t do above on my platform … it does attached.

    EDIT / PS

    What do you have spread set at?

    If you have it set at 10 then it will do what you are experiencing due to your  TS of 10.

    i asked in another thread what MAE and MFE stand for, so i best get these dumb questions out of the way as well Abs Perf? Relate Per%? what do they mean please?

    Does nbr bars refer to the points/pips of trade?

    Also, i have a trailing stop of 10 set why is it then on the losing trades that the nbr bars showing 10 + shouldnt this close the trade at 10 losing points instead of the 20, 23, 19 that it shows?

    cheers

    It’s because your trailing stop is hit, usually within the first bar, since it’s really tight.

    As you can see from my Pic1 (the same as your, but abridged), the first two trades are tagged both as ENTRY first, then as TRAILING STOP on exit. While the third one hit your target profit.

    You can easily spot them on pic2.

    Mine is on DAX, 1h, that’s what I meant by “instrument“.

    #98454

    so from my coding what do i need to change to stop it happening please?

    whats a more reasonable trailing stop, take profit margin to assist it?

    Its interesting to see the same strategy do completely different things , on the left is the asx200 index, which is after hours now, and then on the right the EUR/USD, being a FX trade im guessing the market doesnt shut down like each countries local Stockmarkets.

    Try using the Optimiser to determine above.

    Have you  watched Nicolas videos?
