    Easylanguage help: OCA orders

    Is there a way to code OCA orders in EasyLanguage? I have problems when my stop is hit on IB, but Tradestation doesn't know because the datafeed sucks, and that price hasn't been plotted. When this happens, Tradestation thinks the trade is still on and won't remove the target order.

    Predicting the future maximum drawdown...

    ... of a system, or a portfolio of systems. It's a very interesting argument, because you can read how many books you want (I read some by Ralph Vince) on Money management, but all of them are based on the fact that you know, with reasonable certainty, the amount of the future maximum drawdown...

    Any good exit strategy?

    Hi guys. I have several strategies that worked in the past on futures, over a long haul (1997 to present). They try to guess the intraday direction and generally buy/sell in the morning, to exit at end of day. My problem is I can't code any other good exit rule that would make my strategies...

    Tradestation Return on Account

    Hi all, I have a problem in setting margins in Tradestation 8.7 (with OwnData 2.7). When I optimize a strategy, Return on Account is computed as TotalProfit/(MaxDrawdown), while it should be TotalProfit/(Margin+MaxDrawDown). So, where should I specify the Margin in order to have it working for...
