Positions unexpectedly closing

#1 Postby davelansing » Mon Jan 01, 2024 3:38 pm

Hello,

An issue that I'm having is that my open positions are unexpectedly closing despite the fact that I have not set a TP or SL and that I've not enabled the trailing SL.

In the first screenshot (daily chart), you can see that I have 5 buy positions open (via market orders):

when I move forward by one bar, 4 of the positions are automatically closed:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Dave

Hello,

Thank you for the screenshots.

Looks like you've accidentally activated trailing stop for your orders, that's why they are being closed.

Please open "Market order" window, switch to "Trailing stop" tab and disable trailing stop there.
And you won't have this problem anymore.

Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

Hi FX Helper,

Thank you for your response. The Trailing Stop wasn't activated, but I was able to determine the problem. I had activated "Strategies" and selected two strategies in order to check out their functionality and then forgot to deactivate the strategies when I began my manual back testing.

Best,
Dave
