MA crossover strategy?

#1 Postby nu2this » Sun Feb 26, 2017 8:00 pm

Hello,

I think I have set my parameters for this strategy correctly but am not sure. I have clicked "Apply" after my settings. Having clicked the enable/disable strategy button, nothing seems to happen when the MA's cross. How does this work? Is a trade automatically triggered when a cross occurs? How can I tell if my strategy is set up properly.

Any help?
Thank you

Thank you. I had viewed this tutorial and followed the steps. My question is, How do I know the strategy execution is enabled and active? I explained that I had clicked the small icon in the upper right panel adjacent to the list of strategies icon. When I do this there is no indication of active or not active activity. There is no change in the icon appearance. It does not highlight,flash,blink or anything else.What indication should I see enforming me this has been done correctly.

Thank you.

Hello,

The strategy will work if you select the currency pair in its properties, activate the strategy in the "Strategies list" window and activate "Enable strategy execution" button.

If you activate everything but still don't see opened orders, please switch to "Journal" menu and check if you see any message there.

Maybe there is not enough margin on your account or the orders can't be opened due to another issue.
