Just started working with the backtest function and I'm struggling with exit phrases. Can't find anything in help.

For example: How would I write an exit if I entered a long position on a buy stop and wanted to exit on the first profitable opening?

I also just started workign with the back test and am frustrated with finding how to customize exits. Could anyone tell me how to create simple exit phrases? For instance in a long situation...sell when the stock closes below MA (10) or sell when the stock makes a new 20 day low. any help would be greatly appreciated!

paul14,

Ah yes...the old Larry Williams "Bailout Exit Method" !

Did you ever get any help with this question ?

I've already suggested adding exit on specified date option to utilize backtesting strategies based on timing methods outside of stockfetcher.

Paul,

"Exiting on the first profitable Open" is NOT possible at the moent on SF.
For this you'd have to reference a condition for TOMORROW (based on todays filter results). Tom from SF told me that they are working on this, but no solution yet. This is the same problem as "Waiting for green". No way to test this, yet.
