PRT Auto-System - Only pushing through 1st Trade ( & not subsequent)

Question

Hi -

The issue.

 

I'm running this on a demo a/c.

 

Auto Trade sends the first order to IG Demo a/c but not subsequent orders although they are listed on the PRT order list ?

 

Not sure if it's a setting on PRT or IG

 

All suggestions greatly appreciated,

 

Many Thanks

 

Hugh

Hi Dan,

Just noticed your reply on this. I tried to post some screen shots but kept getting error messages.

 

The solution is that when you go to launching an Auto Trade - there is a small box at the bottom that asks

for maximum trade size.

This could be interpreted as maximum stake per trade (as I thought it was) but it isn't actually this.

It refers to the number of actual trades.

So if you were launching an Auto Trade that traded 2PP and the code added to this position subsequently ,

you need to ensure that the number in the small box is >2.

So for example if you added 5 trades all at 2 PP  = the number in the small box needs to be 10.

 

Hope you followed this !

    • yes they will be on less charts but I understand your point about the size of the moves in ftse, no harm in trialing them though you might find marking out the immediate prior high and low has more relevance.  
    • Yeah, I keep an eye on volume, that's why it's showing at the bottom of my chart However, I haven't been able to discover a strong relation between volume spikes and trend direction. Sometimes I see orders of the magnitude of 10-20k and the chart doesn't do anything special. Other times you see just average volume and the chart does huge turnarounds. For example what happened at 8.30 with that spike down and then going straight back up and making new highs vs previous candle? All happened on low volume
    • @jameswalker1 my recommendation is trade the demo account to get a better understanding of the costs associated. I traded demo for nearly 2 years before placing my first real trade. It will save you in the long run to get a better understanding of the costs involved.
