Auto Trading Issue


JedandSteve

Question

Hi,

I have an issue with my auto trading system on pro real time. I have raised it with IG and PRT but thought someone may be able to help here.

The system had been working fine until 2 days ago.

The system places my stop orders and should delete the previous order if it hasn't been filled as it moves onto the next bar but this isn't happening as it should.

It seems to be delayed as I end up  with a heap of orders (sometimes up to 20) placed at the same price and then when I stop the system it continues placing and deleting orders as if it is trying to catch up.

Sounds really strange. Usually stop/limit orders in PRT's auto trading are only valid for the next bar. So if you don't repeat your order every bar again it should vanish after only one bar.

But this might be just another example why you shouldn't use PRT's auto trading with real money. It is a nice looking feature on the first glance but it is faulty and has many bugs that will sooner or later result in you loosing money if you try to run strategies live with it.

However PRT is quite nice for constructing custom indicators and also useful to make a fast backtest of an idea.

Hi JedandSteve,

I have also experienced very strange behaviour from PRT, using code which has been stable until a couple of days ago. Quite disconcerting with trades being taken out that did not need to be...

This is why I stopped using PRT. I had a strategy running live with great profit for more than 6 months without any problems. Then a platform error caused a loss of about 1500 USD. PRT refused to refund me for this loss though it was a bug in PRT that obviously caused the loss saying I used PRT on my own risk.

This is where I decided to leave and I never regret this decision.

We observe that ASX LIMITED is approaching the end of wave 2-grey, but needs more evidence on price action for confirmation, also allowing wave 3-grey to be opened to push higher thereafter.   ASX: ASX LIMITED - ASX  Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   ASX: ASX LIMITED - ASX  1D Chart (Semilog Scale) Analysis Function: Major (Minor degree, grey) Mode: Motive Structure: Impulse Position: Wave (c)-orange of Wave ((y))-navy of Wave 2-grey Details: The short-term outlook indicates that the price has continued to decline longer than expected, with wave 2-grey retracing quite deeply. Essentially, it may continue this action. However, a drop below 53.98 will call for a reassessment of the situation.

    • I overheard a discussion between two friends and one was telling the other that Bitcoin is a scam and that a lot of people preached about the halving and how people could cashout from it. The other friend was trying to convince him to continue holding his asset but he refused and replied that nothing would stop him from selling the coins he's holding.  When I heard that man mentioned cashing out from the halving, I understood that he might know about Bitcoin but he's not properly enlightened concerning it. A lot of expectations were cut short after the halving event cause most people expected Bitcoin to set a new height of $80k but then it didn't even get close to the previous all time high and have reduced below $60k currently.  I think people shouldn't get discourage by that, though I didn't experience other halvings cause I had zero knowledge about Bitcoin then but i think something similar have occurred before in one of the previous halving where Bitcoin price didn't go up as expected but later traced back and went up after some period, a lot of people might begin to panic and sell their coins but I still see this an opportunity to buy more Bitcoin and for those who are not opportuned to do so, holding is the best option, please correct me if you think am wrong
