Directional entry (long or short depending on the input) that will be generated via a Stop or Limit order, whichever occurs first.
The _Single 1dir Rnge En strategy will generate a single entry (either long or short) depending on the input; it will be generated as either a stop or limit order, depending on which side of the specified price range is reached first. You may indicate the direction of entry (long or short), the number of shares, and the date and/or time that the order becomes active.
This strategy allows you to set a limit order for a favorable price along with a stop order if the market moves in your anticipated direction.
This strategy will only work on charts using an Intra-day or Daily bar interval.
